    Hi.

    I have installed OpenTTD (via sudo apt-get install openttd ), however I can’t get it to run from the terminal – I receive an error message stating:

    Error: Couldn’t find any suitable video driver

    Does anyone know how to run this from command line so it can be implemented into Emulation Station?

    I have tried using the runcommand script line in the normal manner (used for other ports), which, if I understand correctly, is a way to easily get access to the framebuffer, however when trying that it does not bring anything up at all, not even the error message?

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers.
    Steve

    I think it needs x to run

    Doh! Typical. Although I am sure I have read that others have ran it from terminal? Maybe I need to build it from source rather than using debian package route? hmmm…

    It’s possible, I could be wrong. Just from personal experience the vast majority of Linux games need some form of x to run.

    Maybe I will say something completely stupid, but is it possible to make it run with x by using the xinit command from the terminal?

    Still needs graphics and sound plugins installed from the built in installer. I may look at automating those in the future, but at least it’s up and running for now.
