OK. Thanks!

Yup, you need to be in the games group for the game to work.

But if you ran the game once as root, it created the log file as root, and the game will not be able to overwrite/append to it when run as a user. So you need to:

sudo chown <your_user>:games /opt/thrive/bin/*.{log,sav,cfg}

Or simply "sudo rm" them.

If you find any better way to handle the log files, I'm still searching :)

The game only works whith root user, executing sudo thrive.

I've tried to add my user to group "games", but it doesn't work too. This is the error:

CEGUI::FileIOException in function 'virtual void CEGUI::DefaultLogger::setLogFilename(const CEGUI::String&, bool)' (/home/hhyyrylainen/Projects/cegui/cegui/src/DefaultLogger.cpp:190) : Failed to open file 'CEGUI.log' for writing
