I am having a problem running the exported game on ubuntu linux.
I am getting this message:
Could not display “/media/*****/682A-88E8/Game”.
There is no application installed for executable files. Do you want to search for an application to open this file?
What should i do to make it work?
right click on executable properties->permission->check “allow executing file…” and try again, some error might still occur if missing dependencies so i suggest to run it in the terminal so you can see it
in terminal type: chmod +x nameOfGame.x86
then, in the same folder where you have your game data, in your terminal run: ./nameOfGame.x86
Make sure both of the files (the exe and the data folder) are on the home drive not a usb. the right click the exe and tick “executable” now the game should run when you click it.
Thanks for your help, but… I’ve found an easy solution in the meantime
I asked a friend who had a similar problem with deploying a linux app for many customers, here is the way he used to do :
download getlibs-all.zip attached here, unpack and install it
in terminal type : getlibs pathToYourUnityAppfile
wait for the downloading of everything
done ! you can run your linux unity exe by double clicking it
At least it worked for me Let me know if you think something might be missing in this process, else it should be good to share this solution widely
I had the same problem on Ubuntu 17.04.
The .x86 game just would not start.
To fix it I created a 64 bit version of the game (x86_64), then followed the advice to allow execution of the executable, and it worked.
