I've always loved this game but after upgrading to Ubuntu 10.10 the game was removed. Naturally I went into the Software Center and reinstalled it. However now when I launch it, it just freezes and will not do anything. I eventually have to kill it.

It shows this output in the terminal:

(seed:12453): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_ref: assertion "G_IS_OBJECT (object)" failed

Is there a known bug or something? How can I get this working again?

It looks to have been fixed. I just need to download the update (or I'll have to build from source). – Lucas McCoy Feb 5 '11 at 21:53
