@knapsu:
Many thanks for your support!

I was quite busy in the last weeks and now I'm still figuring how to get openxcom + FMP working again after the Ubuntu update 16.04 -> 18.04. Unfortunately, I don't remember exactly how I did it before.
Seems like the 1.0 version delivered by ppa:knapsu/openxcom is not enough, I need the nightly version. Would you mind creating a 18.04 update of openxcom-beta? Or what is the prefered way to run openxcom nightly on Ubuntu 18.04?

Thank you!

Hi. The PPA repository openxcom-beta is discontinued. Please use universal AppImage packages instead. These packages can be downloaded from OpenXcom website.

Is there some sort of manual on how to use those?

On that same page:
Code: [Select]
Download AppImage file, make it executable, and run. No need to install.

knapsu:
Thank you! I downloaded the AppImage. It is working. However, as soon as I click on some ufo, openxcom crashes with this message:
OpenXcom has crashed: Interface intercept not found
Any idea how to fix that? The data folder is the same as I used without problems in the past.

Still, I think a .deb-Package of openxcom-beta would be great, at least for the Ubuntu LTS versions (every 2 year).

The "data" folder no longer exists in the nightly (AppImage) version of OXC as the file structure has changed to be more accommodating of modding - you should completely remove everything from the 1.0 version and only use what's packaged with the AppImage.

OK, then I have to ask: The mod and save files are laying in folder ~/.local/share/openxcom at my place. The data folder must be placed there, as well? Because that's what the AppImage complains about, missing data files.

I still can't get the AppImage to work. It complains it's missing the X-COM data files. However, the installed version works just fine. Could it be, that the two are looking for the game contents on different locations? If so, where does the AppImage look for the game contents?
