I'm trying to install Dwarf Fortress, and you have to unpack the file in a certain way. Here are the instructions they give:
Unpacking: Dwarf Fortress is shipped as a (bzip2) compressed tar archive. It will extract into a new directory called df_linux. So, cd to wherever you want the game to be unpacked, and then run tar xjf /path/to/df_XX_YY_linux.tar.bz2 (where df_XX_YY_linux.tar.bz2 is the filename). Then run cd df_linux to change into the new directory.
I cd'd to Desktop, where I wanted to unpack the file. However, when I entered tar xjf /path/to/df_XX_YY_linux.tar.bz2, this was the result:
pickle@pickle-NC10:~/Desktop$ tar xjf /path/to/df_34_11_linux.tar.bz2 tar (child): /path/to/df_34_11_linux.tar.bz2: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now
I already am on a 32-bit system, but I still tried to use sudo apt-get install ia32-libs libsdl-image1.2 libsdl-sound1.2 libsdl-ttf2.0-0 to see if it would change anything. As I expected, no change. The filename is correct, I double checked. I'm not experienced with using the terminal, so is there something I'm missing? Any help will be greatly appreciated.
By the way, if you want a link straight to the installation page for Dwarf Fortress, here you go.
Update: I tried using
pickle@pickle-NC10:~/Desktop$ tar xjf /path/to/home/pickle/Downloads/df_34_11_linux.tar.bz2
Same result as before. This is me using the complete file name, same response as before.
