Title: [Linux] Please add shebang to starsector.sh
Post by: null on July 19, 2018, 07:54:29 AM
I made a Lutris installer for Starsector (https://lutris.net/games/starsector/), but because the shell script for starting the game on Linux is missing the shebang, Lutris just prints an error (apparently a limitation of Python, according to https://github.com/lutris/lutris/issues/306).

For now I worked around that by setting the game executable to jre_linux/bin/java with the relevant arguments, but it'd make it simpler if you could just add
Code:
#!/bin/sh
as first line in the starsector.sh script.

It’s kind of weird that it’s not there to begin with.

Hmm. I'm not sure (50/50 or so) but I seem to recall maybe doing it this way for a reason. Wish I remembered what the reason was, though. It's possible that it didn't work with the #!/bin/sh for whatever reason under some set of circumstances...
