Enemy Territory: Wolfenstein - Complete Install Guide for Hardy

Make sure that the driver to your 3D graphics card is properly installed and working by opening up a terminal and typing:

glxgears

Be sure your sourcelist is correctly set and download the relevant libs to Wolfenstein.

sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

sudo aptitude install libc6-i386 libgtk1.2

wget http://www.boundlesssupremacy.com/Cappy/getlibs/getlibs-all.deb

sudo dpkg -i getlibs-all.deb

INSTALLATION:

Open the terminal and type;

cd ~/Desktop

wget -c http://ftp.games.skynet.be/pub/wolfenstein/et-linux-2.60.x86.run

chmod +x et-linux-2.60.x86.run

sudo sh et-linux-2.60.x86.run

NOTE: It's important that you exit the installer window and do not press the installers play button. It will course permission problems for Wolfenstein.

Get any missing dependencies

getlibs /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/et.x86

Build a Launcher in the Games Menu


sudo nano /usr/share/applications/etwolfenstein.desktop

Add the following;

[Desktop Entry]

The only thing I can guess is to redownload the the file to make sure it's good. And be sure to run the file as ROOT. I only use Ubuntu and etch might be a little bit different.

I haven't had a chance to try Jaunty vs ET yet. I'll have a look at it in a few days. There may be a problem with the XFree86 and Jaunty's video structure. I'll get back with you and if I find a solution I'll post it.
