Any errors? Any instructions included in the folder (docs, support)? How many different things you tried to look for to troubleshoot this?

Verify that you have execution rights for the script. You can see the permissions with:
Code: Select all
ls -l


You can add execution rights for script if needed with:
Code: Select all
chmod +x <filename>

The nice thing about yesterday's news is that you know what it is and it's not likely to change. :D

I'm sure that with your can-do attitude and extensive Linux knowlege, you'll be a big hit on the Arch forums! Think positive!

BTW, a game that requires DosBox to run is in no way a native Linux application. But you know that, and made sure that DosBox was installed and set up, right?
