Thread: Linux Testing

  1. #431
    I enabled IPv6 on my PC by removing "ipv6.disable=1" from my kernel parameters and the logs were emailed out last night.

    There was an advice on page 21 of this thread,

    "You probably should not be installing as root now with the new install process.
    I'd suggest removing everything again as root, then drop back to your normal user and install there. Make sure your normal users is "clean" as well as per earlier instructions."

    but I don't know what it means.
    Did you get it working Adasiek?

    Hello linux friends! I recently stumbled into a problem and a solution and I figured I would document it here in case anybody else encounters it in the future. I apologize if this has already been discussed, I'll remove this promptly if that's the case.

    I ran FGUInstaller.bin on my Arch PC and after completing the installation wizard, I found that I had booted into a main menu with missing text almost everywhere except in the logs, which made the GUI quite impossible to navigate as you can imagine!

    If you encounter this issue, no worries, the solution is very simple. You are just missing the necessary microsoft fonts on your system. In Arch you can install the ttf-ms-fonts package from the AUR. You may have to look up a different package depending on your specific distro.

    If you are dual booting linux and windows, you also have the option of creating a sym link pointing to the fonts folder in your windows partition, as described in this article!

    Cheers, hopefully this proves helpful to somebody.

    Thanks, MattyMutt! I'll track down the Microsoft font packages for different OSes and distros and post them in the Customer Portal. Thanks for sharing your solution!

    Hi, unfortunately not, I went through tons of tutorials online,
    and I came up to a conclusion that Linux is designed not for me.

    I used the following version of Linux:
    Linux version 5.4.0-48-generic ([email protected]) (gcc version 9.3.0 (Ubuntu 9.3.0-10ubuntu2)) #52-Ubuntu SMP Thu Sep 10 10:58:49 UTC 2020

    Anyways, thank you for your replies

    You literally have to open your Ubuntu terminal and paste in

    chmod +x ./FGUWebInstall.bin && ./FGUWebInstall.bin (open a terminal in the download folder where you downloaded FGUWebInstall.bin)

    Then follow the prompts.

    FGU Linux Updating

    I've been using FGU on Linux for a while now, and obviously have been hitting CHECK FOR UPDATES on a regular basis. I know it is updating my products, but on Linux is the core FGU engine being updated? On Windows it is, but Linux can be a different animal when it comes to updating applications. I had a problem awhile ago and I was told to reinstall (which did fix the issue) because there was a new "build". If Linux users need to manually upgrade, how do we find out when there is a new build?

    Just looking for some clarity on keeping my Linux FGU up to date.

    Thanks,
    WR

    Yes its being updated at the same time as the lesser OS. 4.0.6 is the latest build.
