Default Missing ncurses lib

./game: error while loading shared libraries: libncursesw.so.5: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Where do I find this library? Thanks in advance.

nvm, i think i found it with the package manager. Still an unexpected error; needs to be fixed -- and I trust Adrian is working on it.

Regnum expects an outdated library. You can solve this by pretending to the game it exists by creating a link from the new one.

For example, on Ubuntu 20.04:

Code:
ln -s /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libncursesw.so.6 /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libncursesw.so.5
The path /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/ might be different depending on your distribution.

As today it seems you can install both on Ubuntu20-based systems.

Code:
sudo apt-get install libncurses5 libncurses6
If you only install libncurses6, you can just create a symbolic link (as already said):

Code:
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libncurses.so.6.2 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libncurses.so.5
