Try typing "padsp eschalon book x" Replacing the "eschalon book x" with whatever book you are running.

 padsp "eschalon_book_2" 
and

Code: Select all

 padsp "eschalon book 2" 
returned the reading:

Code: Select all

 exec: 88: eschalon book 2: not found

That's because in UNIX the current working directory isn't in your PATH by default. You want to run:

Code: Select all

padsp ./eschalon_book_2

Hmm... I am still getting the same return when I switch that to ./eschalon_book_2 , any ideas why? Is the ./ in front referring to the directory that the game is in, since I found a hidden folder named ./eschalon_book_2 where my save games are stored.

Yes, the ./ is used to refer to the current working directory. What directory are you in? What files are there?

Code: Select all

$ pwd
/home/spottedshroom/games/eschalon2
$ ls
datapak
Eschalon World Map.jpg
general.cfg
README.txt
eschalon_book_2
launchscreenpak
Eschalon Book II Players Manual.pdf
license.txt
$ padsp eschalon_book_2 
/usr/bin/padsp: 88: exec: eschalon_book_2: not found
$ padsp ./eschalon_book_2
