    Toopid FooBillards!


    So I'm spending some time working on dowloading some games and themes (hence the superkaramba thread) and I got Cube2 at least up and running (nice game btw) and thought I'd try downloading another game.

    3-D Pool, very cool. Downloaded the tar, unzipped it, compiled it, and installed it. The one problem? Getting the game to execute so it will run. I can get into the directory, but can't seem to come up the command to start the game.

    I know someone has the answer to this because there is no information on the Foo Billards site or in any of the files I downloaded for the game.

    As usual, thanks in advance.

    Well then CD into the games directory and try ls to see what's there.
    you might see a file like 3-d-pool.sh
    If so, then try sh 3-d-pool.sh

    This is as far as a I get and I can't figure out how to make the file execute and start.

    Is there no files at all in the foobillard-3.0a folder?
    If there is no files there, you probably need to re-install or re-extract the files you downloaded.

    There's an executable called foobillard in /usr/bin/. This should start it for you.
