I had seen the Humble Indie Bundle before, but it wasn’t until HIB #3 that I decided to actually buy it. I learned about it through the Electronic Frontier Foundation (who else!), and some of the games looked neat. Of course, all of them have a native version for Linux and there is no DRM whatsoever. The other two reasons why I bought it: (1) you set the price, and (2) you donate part of the price to the EFF and/or Child’s Play (you decide the exact split).
One of them, unfortunately, doesn’t actually work on my machine (my video card, or my driver, is too crappy), and one of them I haven’t even tried because I’m not that interested. However, “And Yet It Moves” and “Crayon Physics Deluxe” are fantastic!
Apart from saying that you should buy them, I wanted to write this blog post to give a solution to a problem I had running Crayon Physics Deluxe. When I tried to run it for the first time, I got this error message:
Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x40703) with this library (version 0x1040702) Aborted
There seems to be a problem between the Qt I have installed and the copy of the Qt library that comes with the game itself. The solution for me was to simply rename the directory lib32 to something else.
Back to playing… :-P
