What I see is, that all directories are new (30.01.)

It seems so, that only one file is missing:

scrollbar_background.png

in the path:

/usr/share/games/widelands/data/images/ui_basic

I cannot find this file.

...But that problem should be fixed by an actually update, or?

Current trunk doesn't use that file any more. So, you are running a datadir from current trunk with an older Widelands version (Build 19?).

Hello to all,

the story seems to be finished! face-smile.png

First I used the command:

~~~~sudo apt-get -f install widelands~~~~

and the system says, that there is a 'crossing-over' of two different daily update versions. And further: I should try the command:

~~~~sudo apt-get -f install~~~~

I've done it, and the system started anew a download over 174MB. After this I' ve checked the path

/usr/share/games/widelands/data/images/ui_basic

if there is the missing file 'scrollbar_background.png', but it isn't.... ...Demoralized I started widelands at the terminal for getting the status-info

AND

it runs?!?! face-grin.png

Now it is so, as it should be expected: It is starting the daily-version (for today: Widelands Version bzr8268-201701301501 (Release)).

If the game is started, I can read it also on the top-bar of the window! face-smile.png

...The zooming by scrolling works, too! face-smile.png

Strangely, the game doesn't need the file 'scrollbar_background.png'....

In the end, I want to send a big thank you for helping to all! face-smile.png

Cross-posted I guess - you were using an older Widelands version with a current datadir. We don't use an image for the scrollbar backgrounds any more, because it was ugly.

Have fun playing face-smile.png

@Goofy: If you still have the save file, can you attach it to https://bugs.launchpad.net/widelands/+bug/1638890?

As I don't know if Goofy still has got the save file, I just sended you such a save file with a mail. Because I'm not registered at launchpad, I didn't attach it there
