Subject: (EE): No success probing for data folder!
Hi everyone, I'm back.
I've downloaded the latest nightly build for linux, but could not run it.

These are the error messages:

(EE): No success probing for data folder!
(EE): Missing a file needed for game. Check log and config!
(EE): Error while loading data!

There is a data folder in the maxr folder. The error messages don't say under which path the data folder is expected.
What am I missing?

Try to set $MAXRDATA as described in https://git.maxr.org/...d-on-linux

Might be an issue with special characters in path as well. Please open a ticket it the problem persists.

Ok thanks, I could successfully run maxr with

MAXRDATA=data ./maxr

I would like to make a few suggestions:

1. Have maxr look in the current working directory for the data directory before throwing an error.

2. The maxr builds on the front page are very old, I think. Link to the page with the nightly builds in a new post. I found them by reading random posts in the forum. Mention the MAXRDATA=data workaround for linux as well.

3. Link to gitlab prominently on the front page. I wasn't even aware there is a gitlab before clicking the link you just provided.

The first point is something I could look into myself, if you would appreciate a patch. The other points I guess I don't have the necessary privileges to do them myself.

Could you expand on that?
Or if there is already a thread discussing this at length, could you please link that?

Maybe I can help out.
