Great Game

Postby frank392 on Tue Jun 19, 2007 1:56 pm

Hi ,
I just found this Game.

http://www.warsow.net/
is there a way to creat a mint File from it, or the packages that run from themselves we leave them just like that?.
I have it on My home Folder. it runs from there.
and when I put the command:
sudo aptitude show warsow
I get this: Unable to locate package warsow
how you prosed with packages that are not installed, that run from the file.
please I would like to learn how to do it if it is posible. thank you very much.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Obviously this does not work for files that were created / downloaded / written by you or processes controlled by you. Tools such as "aptitude" only know about packages that are part of the "apt" package manager, e.g. *.deb packages that were downloaded and installed via "apt" / "dpkg" and its processes. It cannot know stuff that you placed randomly in your home folder.

There doesn't seem to be a Warsow package in the repos, so currently this seems to be the only way to install this game at the moment.

scorp is right. apt is part of your system. Since you downloaded it, you can probally use
Code: Select all
 sudo dpgk -i yerpackage.deb
or do a "./configure" then "make install" from the source


but those are just suggestions, not an answer

To get an answer, i'd just check the ubuntu forums.

Mint has it's own reposteries, http://www.linuxmint.com/repository/
If it's added there one can make a mint-file or a simpe apt-get.
You could ask Clem to add warsow to it. Warsow is a great game. =)

Though, someone has to make a .deb-file out of it. I'm not good at that, or else I would have done it.
