AGS on Chromebook?
« on: 01 Jun 2015, 22:18 »
Hello,
I'm a new AGS user and I hope this is the right place where post my question... I've just learned the basical of programming language and I just create a little AGS game. I was wondering about the possibility to play AGS games on my Chromebook. I found this post today: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/announcement-adventure-game-studio-engine-slackbuild-4175544111/
do you think that this can give me a possibility?
Sorry for the disturb and for my bad english :-)

Is Chrome OS a sort of Linux? I am not aware of how compatible it is.
You may try building AGS for Linux yourself using the source code from our repository. Here are instructions:
https://github.com/adventuregamestudio/ags/blob/master/debian/README.md
and Linux-related thread:

E: Heh, that thread is actually made by a guy who reported a bug recently.

It should be possible to install a real Linux like Ubuntu (that runs Allegro) next to Chrome OS.

If it's possible to compile normal Linux programs on Chrome OS, you will have to compile some of the dependencies (like allegro) first.
