angband 4.2 tiles in Ubuntu?

Hey all!

I'm trying to get tiles working with ubuntu. I've managed to compile in place and run in sdl, but there is no option for tiles, even when running angband-g. Did I mess something up in the configure phase?

Thanks!

So there's no "Options" entry along the top of the window from running "angband -msdl"? Clicking on that brings up the dialog to select the tile set to use.

For what it's worth, the steps below were sufficient to compile what's in angband-4.2.0.tar.gz from rephial.org on Debian buster and have the SDL front end with tile set support. The libsdl-image1.2-dev, libsdl-mixer1.2-dev, libsdl-ttf2.0-dev, and libsdl1.2-dev packages(and their dependencies) had been installed.

Code:
gunzip -c angband-4.2.0.tar.gz | tar -xBf - 
cd angband-4.2.0
./autogen.sh
./configure --enable-sdl --with-no-install
make install

Not being overly technical I always run Angband from within Wine (currently using Ubuntu 18.04) and have never had any issues with tiles (or other play).

(Yeah, that's not particularly helpful I s'pose). NM.

Thanks guys!

backwardsEric, I installed just like that. It works when I run "angband -sdl", but not "angband -msdl". Says "unable to prepare any display module!". I'll try using wine if nothing else works!

There's an old thread, http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=1520, where someone got the same message. In that case, it seems like there was a version of Angband installed as a package which did not have SDL support compiled in. Is that possibly the case here? Running

Code:
which angband
will tell you what's being run if you don't give a path to the executable. When I was running angband on the Debian system, I had always changed directories to where I had compiled it and ran it with

Code:
./angband -msdl
so I knew I was getting the version I had compiled.

The Angband package for Ubuntu does have SDL and tiles support, for the record. On 19.10 (the latest one, not the LTS) it ships with 3.5.1.
