Summary0006147: Not found: data/art/curses_640x300.png
DescriptionMy friend is trying to run a fresh copy of 34.11. However, it always prompts for fullscreen and then gives the error "Not found: data/art/curses_640x300.png".

The file exists and is in the correct directory.
Steps To ReproduceAttempt to run DF.
Additional InformationIdentical issue: [^] [^]

Also, when he attempted to either move or run from his quick launch bar he recieved a 'fomodex.dll not found' error- which may or may not be the right file name & I can't confirm whether it was on move or on launch due to RL constraints atm.

He's attempting this on winXP.

It crashes after giving the error.

As per the linked issue, does your friend have the libpng3 package? If not, he should install it. Otherwise, he should look if there is another libpng package and install that.

It sounds like DF is being run without the proper "Start In" folder (i.e. current working directory)...

I have access to his computer now, but looking up libpng3 presents an issue: the official distributor gives me something I'm rather out of my depth with, and the other sites look seedy. If it were my computer and I knew what I was doing, I could take the chance. Not on someone else's machine though.

We downloaded the file, extracted it to a folder on the desktop, ran it from that.

Well, that's...ok. Issue appears to be resolved. It runs from both its directory and through a quicklaunch button.

Only steps taken were:

2.downloaded that sourcecode package here [^]

3.opening a couple readmes.

I don't trust magic fixes, but I might accept it this time. Tell me if either of you have any ideas for testing/snooping. If anything else develops, will update.

There should be no need to download libpng separately - the Windows DF package includes it (along with all other dependencies).

welp, copy+pasted my modded version of DF over to his machine, and now it's (semi)broken again.
Neither DF nor the modded DF launch from their directories, but interestingly DF successfully launches from the quicklaunch button.
Further, when I changed the target/start-in properties of the quicklaunch to aim at the modded version, it worked as well.

i have similar problem
OS: ArchLinux 64 bit
df: 0.34.11-2 (arch package) 0.34.11 (official package)

another solution is to delete all png in data/art/, link all bmp to respective names ending in png

OS: Arch Linux 64 bit
Solved by installing lib32-libpng15 from AUR.

Workaround from [^]

LD_PRELOAD=/lib32/ ./df

Make sure your permissions for the directory are correct. "chmod 755 -R df_linux" should work properly. Be sure that the file is also owned by the user "chown user:group -R df_linux" should work.

Excuse me, but I installed the DF windows package, and it has the same issue even though I did install the libpng3 package, it still says it.

This issue should not be confused with 0002688 - despite having the exact same title, this one applies to Windows while the other one applies to Linux (and is actually a totally different problem).
