OpenTTD is an open source simulation game based upon the popular Microprose game “Transport Tycoon Deluxe”, written by Chris Sawyer. It attempts to mimic the original game as closely as possible while extending it with new features.
well, there is prior art … see:
yay! cool, great, nice, thankx!
There’s an error when I try to run it from gnome shell:
galeon gnome-shell: error: Failed to launch “OpenTTD”: Desktop file didn’t specify Exec field
Looks like snapd filtered out the Exec line:
[Desktop Entry] X-SnapInstanceName=openttd Type=Application Version=1.0 Name=OpenTTD Icon=/var/lib/snapd/snap/openttd/2/meta/gui/openttd.png Terminal=false Categories=Game; Comment=A clone of Transport Tycoon Deluxe Keywords=game;simulation;transport;tycoon;deluxe;economics;multiplayer;money;train;ship;bus;truck;aircraft;cargo;
That’s because of:
snapd: taskrunner.go:439: DEBUG: Running task 3683 on Do: Make snap "openttd" (2) available to the system snapd: desktop.go:129: cannot use line "Exec=openttd-casept.openttd %u" for desktop file "/var/lib/snapd/desktop/applications/openttd_openttd.desktop" (snap openttd)
meta/gui/openttd.desktop files appears incorrect indeed.
Opened a PR with a fix https://github.com/diddlesnaps/openttd/pull/2
