    installing QuakeIII in Ubuntu


    Hi

    i'm trying to install QuakeIII on my new Ubuntu system, but I can't find the installation files for quakeII. I had a PC with gentoo on and QuakeIII worked great simply by doing: emerge quakeIII. Is there a software package for debian, so that I can use apt-get "quake3"?

    You can install Quake 3 manually by installing the Quake 3 Point Release from Id Software here or just doing a search.

    You'll then want to copy the .PK3 files from your Quake 3 CDROM into the base directory of your quake3 folder.

    You'll also need to make sure you have hardware-accelerated 3D drivers installed for your video card.

    okay i now have the point release, and this might be a stupid question.

    You can execute a .run file from a console window using the command:
    Code:
    sh someRunFile.run
    Obviously you'll want to replace "someRunFile" with the actual name of your Quake 3 Point Release. That still might not work if the file itself isn't marked as executable. You can do that with the "Change mode" or chmod command:
    Code:
    chmod +x someRunFile.run
