Curious - I installed LinCity on my laptop (Thinkpad T40, 1GB ram, LinuxMint(Gloria)). Both times when I've tried to run it, now, it freezes at the initial menu screen (mouse, k/b, everything - have to force power down the pc, bring it back up, fschk, etc.).
I'm generally under the impression that Linux,etc., runs ok on older or laptop eq. Is it too much to expect that LinCity will run on this platform, or might something else be wrong?
Usually you will invoke the game with lincity or xlincity. Typing lincity will run the SVGA version, while typing xlincity will run the X Windows version. The SVGA version will not run under X. lincity [opts] xlincity [opts]
How do you start the game, in X or in SVG mode
In terminal, check
apt search lincity p lincity - build & maintain a city/country p lincity-ng - City simulator game with polished graphics p lincity-ng-data - Media files for the city simulator game Li v lincity-x -
And which version of the application/game did you install ?
