There's probably a command-line way to do this (it's Unix, after all), but try loading in a text editor and saving it again. The typical problem has been that the lines have Windows line ending characters, and not Unix line-ending characters, and re-saving it should fix that problem. It has for me, anyway.

Postby LegacyKing » Sat Feb 24, 2018 5:22 pm should work. Try opening the file in a text editor, and saving it. That might fix it. (The error is the return carriage or end of line is defaulting to Windows, instead of Linux)

Otherwise, you can grab the from our github repo.

Let us know if that worked.
