HOW TO: install and run PFO in Linux.

@ Mark Kalmes,
Can you give the console command as an example of running it from Play on Linux, with and without the -eula Accept.

Would be nice if this could get some love, i'm stuck and not being able to play. smile

The best way I can think of at the moment is a separate console only patcher, with a console based menu for; accepting eula, verifying game cache, patching game, and running the game.

I can make that menu in under 10 minutes in C++, though the functions of each item, I could not do in that 10 minutes.

Did Mark's update to let you run the Patcher without the UI not work?
Azure_Zero
There was not enough information to even get started in trying to run it.
As I tried with what I did know, and could not get the sucker to run.

Tried today on my Ubuntu.

Patcher is installed and I stuck trying to make it working until I found this thread.

Running it with -console parameter somewhat helps. It runs (unlike GUI version that crashes immediately), download eula.cpf and current.cpf and then quit saying "This parameter is only available on Linux/UNIX machines."

Well, I am on Linux machine, but I run patcher through wine, sure it seems like Windows. So now I stuck here.

Complete output after running with -console:
WINEPREFIX=/home/wine/pfo wine /home/wine/pfo/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Pathfinder\ Online/Patcher.exe -console
fixme:ole:RemUnknown_QueryInterface No interface for iid {00000019-0000-0000-c000-000000000046}
All supplied parameters: C:\Program Files (x86)\Pathfinder Online\Patcher.exe -console
Downloading file 'C:\users\ek\Temp\pfo_patcher\eula.cpf' from 'http://goblinworks.com/static/patcher/eula.cpf'
Downloading file 'C:\users\ek\Temp\pfo_patcher\current.cpf' from 'http://goblinworks.com/static/patcher/current.cpf'

This parameter is only available on Linux/UNIX machines.

You should run the linux Patcher.exe (with -console) through the native Ubuntu console/terminal instead of WINE. Please try that and let us know if you still experience issues.

Yes!
That works. I have to install mono though: sudo apt-get install mono-complete

@LazySnuff
Could you make a step by step process of it, so I can add that to the Opening Post for new or beginner Linux users.

Yes, I got PFO to run on Linux Again, and it is somewhat a pain to do, as it'll require a windows machine to get the updates.
