Hmm, where does one purchase a key in the year 2017

javan commented on 2016-04-26 17:11

The Internet Archive has them saved.

sakaru commented on 2016-04-25 09:04 no longer hosts the tarball (or the desktop icon). I don't have a copy of the file. Does anyone have the original copy that can rehost it? Until this can be solved this package will not build.

Thanks Alister

The gtkhtml package is resurrected as gtkhtml3.

sakaru commented on 2014-07-18 14:53

Yes. sorry, I'd read what was previously the top comment, didn't notice it was from 2013. I've updated the package.

When I just downloaded Linux Tycoon from it’s Homepage, it said it was „Linux Tycoon 1.2“ so I think 1.1 Beta 1 is now out of date.

ihstphone commented on 2013-07-06 07:10

accidentally flagged out of date. whoops

sakaru commented on 2012-11-02 21:09

Pushed version 1.1 Beta 1
Yes this is a beta, I'm updating anyway.
The desktop icon is no longer in the package provided by upstream, so the PKGBUILD downloads that image from the website.
I accidentally left the pkgrel=4 in the PKGBUILD, I don't want to force a downgrade on you guys so I'm leaving it as 1.1b1-4, no harm done.

Thanks for the notification.

1.0-4 is only a license update. Changed from GPL3 to "The Greater Lunduke License". As specified on

hobarrera: The repository is on github, but the code isn't yet in the repository. See the repository which andy123 linked to

hobarrera commented on 2012-07-07 01:02

Source is already on github, you can make a non-bin package now! :D

ajs124 commented on 2012-06-12 14:49

it's github, but he didn't upload it yet.

sakaru commented on 2012-06-09 16:33

Because the developer is in the process of finding out the best way to make the code available (yes, a temporarily violation of the GPL, but it's in good faith). Once the code is available (most likely either via github or bitbucket) I'll create PKGBUILD which compiles from source.

Thaodan commented on 2012-06-09 16:18

The license is GPL why we compile it not from source?

sakaru commented on 2012-06-07 22:31

Not yet been able to resolve Tomin's issue, if someone else can help out it'd be appreciated. I am however pushing a -3 update which copies the deps (and optdeps) from the Ubuntu .deb control file.

$ linux-tycoon

(linux-tycoon:29581): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_hash_table_insert_internal: assertion `hash_table != NULL' failed
Muistialueen ylitys

The game doesn't work. This is not the package's problem, I just wrote here if it happens to have something to do with depencies.
ldd `which linux-tycoon` gave me this:

sakaru commented on 2012-06-06 15:34

The game has been released under the GPL and is free (as in beer) to download. The PKGBUILD has been updated to contain direct links.

sakaru commented on 2012-05-22 00:35

mininessie: This is deliberate. This is paid for software. You need to buy it from the developer, download it, then you can install it using this PKGBUILD.

mininessie commented on 2012-05-20 16:55

this asked about this Game package not found, please type absolute path to game setup package (/home/joe)

sakaru: Thx for updating the pkgbuild. Now everything works fine.

sakaru commented on 2012-04-18 18:17

Javafant: I've done just that, thanks for the suggestion. I expanded a little on how Oilrush's way of doing it so that it still does checksums on the .tar.gz file, but it was a good base.
I tried to avoid using the $startdir variable but couldn't quite do it. If someone can rewrite the PKGBUILD to avoid using $startdir I'd appreciate the help.

cocreature commented on 2012-04-10 22:23

No Problem, could you please add the possibility to specify your own path for the .tar.gz like for example the pkgbuild of Oilrush does? This would be good for lazy people like me who don't want to copy the game file everytime there's an update =)

sakaru commented on 2012-04-10 22:16

Thanks Javafant. I've updated the package, made the versioning more informative.
Apologies for the delay, was on holiday.

sakaru commented on 2012-04-03 11:02

Thanks, all your points are solved in the -3 push.

Huulivoide commented on 2012-04-03 10:42

We dont have i386 arch version of Arch, it's i686.
Also please copy the .png file to /usr/share/pixmaps
and add the .desktop file from the .deb version
