New to Mint, game wont work

Postby Death Jester » Sat Aug 09, 2008 1:12 am

Im new to mint, just installed it about 5 minutes ago infact. Got to downloading the Open Arena game, but, when I click on the icon now that it is installed, nothing happens, not even a twitch from the HDD.

Anyone got any ideas?

So you've got an icon in the menu?
And nothing?
Right click the menu > Reload plugins
If no success
Right click the menu > Edit menu
Look up the menu post for Open arena > Right click > Properties
Now you can see the command in there
Check that Open Arena really is installed where the menu thinks
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
