I just tried to get the itch.io desktop app running on a fresh VM of Fedora 29. I used the
Fedora-Workstation-x86-64-29-1.2.iso and then ran an update to get a few patches.
Unfortunately when I downloaded the excellent itch.io app from itch.io and installed it
chmod +x ~/Download/itch-setup && ~/Download/itch-setup
it then just refused to run… as in nothing happened.
Digging a little further itch installs itself in to
NOTE: the version number is likely to change as itch updates it’s app very regularly.
running from the command line it became clear what was wrong:
.itch/app-25.4.0/itch: error while loading shared libraries: libXss.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
So libXss is missing, should be easy to install, I wonder what it is? X Screen Saver… oh, OK!
sudo yum install Xss
fixes the issue and now you can download and run Smith and Winston
Hope that helps someone out there!
