Installation failed on Kubuntu 18.04.1 TLS

Question

Hey,

I'm trying to install tiberian sun cncnet on Linux/Kubuntu 18.04.11 TLS.

The .deb package won't install, it says unable to meet dependencies. I see on the installation video that linux mint seems to resolve the dependencies, perhaps its kubuntu?

When I run it in a terminal it forces me to remove PHP (which I am running a server, so I don't want to uninstall php!).

How do I install cncnet? I am still new to linux but am loving it so far.

Is there any way to install it without removing php? Seems wine requires its removal to install. Why -- anyone know?

Perhaps I can install on another account or? Maybe cncnet needs to look into using .AppImages -- they are pretty easy and OpenRA uses them perfectly for RA, TD, and Dune and they work great.

You could try to install from the snap that's available in the ubuntu software center, just search for tiberian sun.

You can try to install the snap, but it's still unfinished (you either need to play in windowed mode or set the game res to the same as your desktop res)

 

Probably should be working like this if i remember right:

sudo apt install snapd

sudo snap install cnctsun

snap run cnctsun

 

For red alert, use "cncra" rather than "cnctsun".

Note: red alert doesn't require windowed mode or resolution changes, only the tiberian sun one needs that

Thanks, I will try it out now.

 

Edit: That seemed to work. Are there other options? To install RA2 is it cncra2yr?

There isn't anything for RA2 on Linux. TS got this complete distribution because it's freeware. RA2 isn't, so you'll have to either do a complete Wine/PlayOnLinux installation yourself or run a virtual machine of Windows within Linux.

Currently I'm working on the cncra2yr snap which is currently living on snap edge branch so soonish it will be ready for all.

EDIT: Snap is released but it still has some hiccups with the updater.

      I installed the full download of Tiberian Sun and it works perfectly until the end of the second mission of the Nod campaign. After that the screen goes back and it gives the "Tiberian Sun Executable error" message and crashes. I've tried it a couple of times all with the same result. Is there any fix or anything I could try?

      on the CncNet5 (RA, TS, TD version) there is usually a flashing green button that says "streaming" whenever someone is live on twitch but it doesn't show anymore. When shall this be fixed.

      Hi,
       
      I have some questions regarding Final Sun.

      Why does every time when I'm reloading my map in the editor the shape of all the Ice Ramps randomly get changed?

      Am I missing an option to disable  this behavior (slope correction is disabled) regarding the slope logic and the Terrain Ground 0009 feature?
      I'm using Final Sun that comes with the installer from https://cnc-comm.com/tiberian-sun/downloads/the-game/installer.
       
      Before

      and after reloading:

      I played around a bit in tibed and was thinking. Wouldn't it be cool to have a mod that has the rules of c&c renegade but in an rts c&c game?
      Example:
      Guard towers fire quicker, have longer range and are more armored and nearly 1 shot most vehicles.
      Guard towers have line of sight rules meaning infantry and tanks that are really close to buildings and tall objects can avoid being fired upon. (not sure if this even possible)
      You only get 1 guard tower with the exception of 2 - 4 pillboxes or Gun turrets
      You get 1 refinery with a small amount of credits slowly accumulating overtime and then credit dumps as normal when a harvester returns
      Each team is limited to 6 tanks
      Engineer repairs infantry, tanks and structures over time
      I'm  not sure how c4 and stuff would work. Maybe something in the form of an ivan bomb and you need 4 of them placed on a structure to go off in order to destroy it? Engineers should also be able to remove this.
      Vehicle and infantry fire power, rate of fire should be increased to match the values in renegade.
      Beacon placement for super weapons. A soldier drops the beacon and then it has a count down. Can be removed by engineer.
      Beacon placements on barricks ends the match unless removed by engineer/advanced engineer
      Advanced engineers: Hotwire / Nod technicians repair faster, deploy mines, shorter fuse ivan bomb?
      engineers/ advanced engineers equipped with pistols
      The game should basically all the renegade troops you could purchase such as havoc, sakura, etc with the same role sniping, rail gun etc.
      All aircraft replaced by helicopters/orcas, all infantry/vehicles able to hit them with snipers and rocket soldiers doing the most infantry damage to them. 
       
      Basically an exact copy of the renegade game as close as you can get it but in the form of the many rts c&c games we have now. Though i think you'd want to put an limit on the amount infantry just like most renegade servers could only hand so many players. I think 70 was the biggest I remember back in the day on the renstation server.
