    I am running ubuntu 5.1 on my other p, it is not online i burnt quake3-1.32b-source.zip to a cd. i am trying to run the default installer by
    Code:
    $sudo cd /usr/local/games/quake3
    but i get back
    Code:
    $sudo: cd: command not found.
    I have also tried to mount the cdrom by
    Code:
    $sudo cp /mnt/cdrom0/quake3/baseq3/pak0.pk3 /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3
    then I get cp: cannot stat. '/usr/local/games/quake3/ no such directory.

    1. Don't cross post.
    2. You'll have a much better time installing the Quake 3 binary. Run the installer as root with X access (sux can help you with this) and it will create the appropriate directories for you. Then copy your pak0.pk3 into the baseq3 directory.

    Edit: I suppose you could also use sudo to run the installer, which keeps you from having to install sux and set up a root account, in the spirit of Ubuntu. So grab the binary and do something like:
    Code:
    $ sudo 'sh linuxq3apoint-1.32b.x86.run'

    I( instaled the quake 3 binary with
    Code:
    sudo 'sh linuxq3apoint-1.32bx86.run'
    and everything seemed to work but when I try to copy the pak0.pk3 into baseq3
    Code:
    cp pak0.pk3 /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3
    cp: cannot stat pak0.pk3: no such file or directory

    Um, you are running the cp command from the directory that has pak0.pk3 in it, right? That is, you cd to the directory where you have the pk3, then tell it to cp to /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3. Alternatively, you can specify the whole path for both the source and destination, a la 'cp /media/cdrom/baseq3/pak0.pk3 /usr/local/games/quake3/baseq3'
