1) open a console
2) go to the directory of the file
3) run "sh racer_0.5.4beta1-english.run"

You're talking about the installation, right ?

Racer is already installed (actually I used the same method you describe here) on my computer

The problem occurs when I try to launch the game itself

- Use some console emulation (xterm for example)
- Change into the installation directory
- Launch the game and lets us know what happend

What exactly is your problem Aria?
Did you try out any of the suggestions we made?
You did not supply any information about your hard- and software.

The problem is this:

Code: Select all

$ racer
/usr/local/bin/racer: 123: ./racer.bin: not found
The launcher is broken.

Does it work if you start the game from within the installation directory?
Does this file even exist?

I don't really understand that. Yes it exists, but running fails with error "No such file or directory":

Code: Select all

$ ll /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 2266272 2010-04-18 22:55 /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin
$ /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin 
bash: /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin: No such file or directory
Maybe it is because I run it on x86_64?

I'm using Ubuntu 9.10 x86_64 and it runs fine.

Code: Select all

cd /usr/local/games/racer/; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/games/racer/lib/ /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin
Whats the result of this?

$ cd /usr/local/games/racer/; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/games/racer/lib/ /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin 
bash: /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin: No such file or directory
Both as regular user and root. Ubuntu 10.04 x86_64.

Code: Select all

ldd /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin
?

Code: Select all

file /usr/local/games/racer/racer.bin 
?

edit: any chance that ubuntu 10.04 dropped 32bit support?

The dependencies are problem. Shouldn't this be somehow handled by installer? Shouldn't the libraries be included in the program binary or something?

or just run "racer" as you have done it in the beginning, it should work now.

It is handled by the installer (fmodex). But the ia32 libs have to be delivered by the user, this would go way too far.
