Works flawlessly in the current version of Ubuntu. Warns about a missing file at the ends of the installation but it works great.

It looks like this installer can't handle spaces in folder names. For example you could install to ~/games/dwarffortress/ but not to ~/My Games/dwarffortress

Thanks, it should be fixed in 2.2 now.

Installed fine on Ubuntu 10.4, but there are run-time problems:

hack won't start at all; it gives an immediate segfault.

df works OK, but occasionally segfaults.

DT hasn't shown any problems so far.

Haven't tried stonesense.

Here's what happens if I run hack:

./dfhack -g
***snip licensing stuff***
Reading symbols from /home/bdbryant/DwarfFortress/df_linux/libs/Dwarf_Fortress...(no debugging symbols found)...done.

I made stonesense start up in dfhack by default. You can remove the dfhack.init file to start up without it.
I'm not using any special build of dfhack, I just coppied it to dffd because mojosetup can't yet download from github's https server. You could try building it yourself from here or you may have better luck just updating to a newer version of ubuntu.

Thanks. Merely renaming dfhack.init now allows ./dfhack to start and launch the game. I'll try building stonesense when I have some time, but it's not something I use a lot. I just can't live without dfhack and DwarfTherapist.

Thank you very much for this! I was having a real headache getting Dwarf Therapist to compile and launch in Ubuntu 12.04, but this installed everything without any issues. All runs perfectly. A great help for a Linux noob like myself.

Having a small issue. I am using the newest version of Ubuntu and just used this to install DF and DT. DF works perfectly but DT says that there is no fortress loaded when I am looking at my fortress being dugout. What am I doing wrong? I click connect to DF and then Read Dwarves and then get the error.

One possibility is you have a security setting enabled that blocks applications from accessing each other's memory.

There's a script that installs the complete Linux LNP available now; probably worth checking that out as an upgrade.
