Linux (Xubuntu) installation - can't find the game after install

Post by camjrp » Sun Sep 02, 2018 1:14 am

First of all i will prevent that english is not my native language so you could find some errors in my writting
Using the latest version of Ubuntu (Xubuntu) i installed OpenRa following the instructions. First installed mono, then the appimage file and everything was ok. The game runned without a flaw.
After quiting the game, i could not found it anywhere. Not in the file manager nor in the start menu. I suppose that if i installed and after the install the game runned flawlessly, its because it is in the system.
So, where could i find it and what do i have to do to add it to the start menu.
Thanks in advance!

Iirc the game files are within the AppImage, so there is no installation folder created. Was that your question?

I just found a folder of the instalattion. It was hidden.
The folder name is .openra. But i can't find the executable.
I find this odd because when i was using Debian, after installing the game, dpkg recognized it and i was able tu run it through the start menu, but with xubuntu i can't find it.
I just tried typing "openra" in the terminal and it says "command not found"

Ok, an update on this issue.
I just found Openra in the repositories of my system. I don't know why it wasent there before, im pretty sure i looked for it.
Before installing it trough the software center, i would like to uninstall what i installed with the appimage. So, what do i have to do to uninstall it?

The AppImage is self contained - run it to run the game, delete it to "uninstall" it. If you want to add shortcuts to your system launcher you need to install https://github.com/AppImage/appimaged and move the AppImage to one of the monitored directories.
