Steam - Defenders Quest: Valley of the Forgotten wont run

I have installed adobe-air-sdk and adobe-air from the AUR, I am running a 32bit system.

I still can't get the game to run, I get these errors when I try

Is it possible the game just didn't install properly? Or is this something bigger?

Look at the run script: it's trying to run xterm, which you don't have. Either change it to use whatever terminal you use or install xterm.

OK, I changed the script to use urxvt.

Then I got a terminal loaded to say the Adobe AIR runtime script libCore.so couldn't be found in /opt/Adobe AIR/Versions/1.0/, so I made the directory and copied over all the scripts. Still nothing though, a new couple of errors - seems it wants to use dpkg..

It seems the install script doesn't exist in the folder.

Was a "libeggtray.so" installed with the game? If so, try setting LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include the directory containg the library and then running the game.

It was part of the adobe AIR runtime scripts, I copied over all the scripts rather than just one and that was the runtime issue solved. I edited my post above

I've added the information on how to run this game to the appropriate wiki page. Please consult it and mark this thread as [solved].
