Installing Shadowgrounds.iso

Postby Jerry on Wed Mar 26, 2014 10:46 am

Hi. I have done a quick search on the gaming sub-forums to see if there are similar problems that have been encountered previously with installing the Linux version of shadowgrounds. But unless I have missed something, I don't believe that I have found anything that is related.

My problem is with trying to make a shadowgrounds.iso file install the game. Within the shadowgrounds.iso file is another file that is named shadowgroundsUpdate1.run file
I have tried these commands several times with similar results and unfortunately, no install of the game has yet been successful beyond these terminal inputs.

The command inputs I've tried are the following. Here is the full output:

Code: Select all
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo mkdir /media/loop
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/media/loop’: File exists
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 ~/Downloads/shadowgrounds.iso /media/loop
mount: block device /home/frankenstein/Downloads/shadowgrounds.iso is write-protected, mounting read-only
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ cp -R /media/loop/* ~/installer_temp/
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sync
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ cd ~/installer_temp
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ chmod u+rx ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run
bash: ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run: No such file or directory
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ umount /media/loop
umount: /media/loop is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ sudo umount /media/loop
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run
bash: ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run: No such file or directory
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$


The ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run file should be within the installer_temp; however, as I've be come aware on a number of occasions when attempting these Terminal inputs, I don't see it within the /media/loop directory, the temp directory, nor in the home directory. That includes searching within some of the hidden files in all those directories.

Oh, by the way, I have tried it both this way:

Code: Select all
umount /media/loop
cd ~/installer_temp


and this way. Either way, makes really no difference though:

Code: Select all
cd ~/installer_temp
umount /media/loop



as you can see with the below terminal inputs when reversing.


Code: Select all
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ rm -rf ~/installer_temp
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo mkdir /media/loop
[sudo] password for frankenstein:
mkdir: cannot create directory ‘/media/loop’: File exists
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ mount -o loop -t iso9660 ~/downloads/shadowgrounds.iso /media/loop
mount: only root can do that
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 ~/downloads/shadowgrounds.iso /media/loop
/home/frankenstein/downloads/shadowgrounds.iso: No such file or directory
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 ~/Downloads/shadowgrounds.iso /media/loop
mount: block device /home/frankenstein/Downloads/shadowgrounds.iso is write-protected, mounting read-only
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ cp -R /media/loop/* ~/installer_temp/
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sync
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ umount /media/loop
umount: /media/loop is not in the fstab (and you are not root)
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ sudo umount /media/loop
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~$ cd ~/installer_temp
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ chmod u+rx ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$ ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run
bash: ./shadowgroundsUpdate1.run: No such file or directory
frankenstein@frankenstein-desktop:~/installer_temp$


as on the 1st occasion on utilizing the inputs given above there was a bit of a hiccup (the above inputs are actually the 5th and 6th time I believe).
Sorry, as I don't recall but it didn't work out that way.
Hence the reversal of those terminal inputs. Regardless, either way I don't think really matters. Please do correct me if I"m wrong on this last part, though.

The problem that I'm facing is that there doesn't seem to be the ~/installer_temp$ directory and hence I think this might be the cause of my troubles.

Please suggest to me alternate terminal inputs to get the game installed if there is a better one available.

if /media/loops exists, designate another and mount it there. You have complete control over where you mount it!

Examples:
Code: Select all
mkdir -pv ~/shadowgrounds
or
Code: Select all
mkdir -pv ~/mygame/shadowgrounds


as root even:
Code: Select all
# mkdir -pv /media/shadowgrounds

then
Code: Select all
mount -o loop ~/Downloads/shadowgrounds.iso <one_of_the_above>

Ok. Thanks Habitual. I'm going to give your examples a try and will put here my success or no-success after I try this out. Thanks again in advance for helping me out.
