I emerged FreeCiv...now what? [Solved]

Post by RedSoda » Tue Nov 27, 2007 1:32

I am a relatively new Linux user, and I finally got my system up and working perfectly. (Yay! :D ) So I figured it would be nice to sit back and relax a bit by trying out FreeCiv. I emerged it, and now I can't find out how to get the thing to actually work.

I did try executing the "civclient" coomand in the console, but it comes back with a message saying that the command was not found.

I know that it's probably something simple...but any help would be greatly appreciated.

doesn't it show up in menu under games?

I use to have it install but can't remember that command to start it. Try tab complete, type first few letters and than tab tab

By doing that tab thing it brought up the command "civserver", which eventually led me into the right direction. (It works now.)
Thanks for the help, man.
