won't start on linux (with hack solution)

Postby norwood » Mon May 08, 2017 5:23 pm

Trying to run the steam version of the game, all I get is a blank black window with a narrow white rectangle at the top. Some searching around suggested there was a problem with newer freetype library breaking the electron framework.

My solution was that I installed latest electron framework (from distro repository --- in my case with Arch linux) and ran it. It opened a window telling me to drag and drop my app onto it... so i started dropping files from Curious Expedition onto it (I don't know what I'm doing... so this was an adventure). I finally found when I dropped the file SteamApps/common/The Curious Expedition/resources/app.asar onto the electron runner app Curious Expedition started up fine. Seems to be working well, half way into my first game.

Glad to hear that you found a work-around and thanks for the follow-up! I'll try to fix the problem so that no hacky solution is necessary :)
