keys.cfg missing - it's nowhere
« on: July 22, 2005, 02:26:50 pm »

Hello Guys!

I've the following problem:

Code:
The Ur-Quan Masters v0.4.0 (compiled Jul 22 2005 13:56:15)
This software comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY;
for details see the included 'COPYING' file.

Initializing base SDL functionality.
Using SDL version 1.2.7 (compiled with 1.2.7)
Using '/usr/local/games/share/uqm/content' as base content dir.
Saved games are kept in /home/maik/.uqm/save/.
Initializing Pure-SDL graphics.
SDL driver used: x11
SDL initialized.
Initializing Screen.
Set the resolution to: 640x480x32
0 joysticks were found.
Error: Could not copy default key config to user config dir: No such file or directory.

I already found threads about the problem. But the real problem is, that there is no config anywhere

Does anybody know why?

I am getting the same problem.

I am running an AMD 64, with Suse 9.2
On the install option I chose the defaults except to not include GL support.  All I would need is a copy of the keys.cfg to work with.

The keys.cfg file is copied from the content package (which is a .zip file in disguise). /usr/local/games/share/uqm/content should contain the file uqm-0.4.0-content.uqm. If it is missing you can get a message like this.

I'm getting the same error.  I'm building from source. I am using 0.6.2 source and the 0.6.0 content file.
(these are the files linked too from the website)

so I unzipped the content file and still no keys.cfg

is there a 0.6.2 content file? or just the 0.6.0?

right now I'm downloading from the subversion repository on sourceforge.net in hopes of finding a keys.cfg

yes everything is in the right place and the uqm wrapper script points to the correct content directory

Well, ok I see why I can't find keys.cfg
I checked the relase notes for 0.6.0 and found that Key config is entirely in-game

Unfortunately, sc2code/libs/sdl/input.c still looks for keys.cfg and throws an error when it cannot find the file.

...so I'll try the SVN version which currently downloading (STILL *sigh*)

if not I'll patch the source and submit said patch

Ok, The SVN version of the game works fine. No error thrown by the input handler. No need for keys.cfg at all.
I would recommend building this baby (UQM) form SVN source rather than the 0.6.2 source package.

PS SVN checkout includes all the content as well.

...and now...on with the hacking Smiley Grin
