Linux issues

The itch client claims that "No compatible downloads were found for 'OpenWar', so it wasn't installed." when I hit the install button on Linux Mint 18.3 (64Bit).

Downloading and installing the deb via browser works. I guess Itch doesn't like deb files.


After starting the game I downloaded the Shareware assets via menu and tried to run the game (menu item 0).

That gave me this output:

After manually installing the timidity package I got it to run and successfully load a map.
