Install GridWars on Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron

Par Pierre-Yves Landuré - Dernière modification 02/06/2008 10:44

GridWars is a clone of XBox 360 game Geometry Wars. I've worked to create a package for this game in order to ease its install on Ubuntu. This article help you to install GridWars from the Debian package I've created.

Fast and obfuscated

The following command lines summaries this guide. It allow you to install Grid Wars very quickly. First, setup your sudo environment :

sudo echo

and copy / paste the following command lines in your terminal :

echo "# Lone Wolf games packages for Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron
deb http://falcon.landure.fr hardy games
deb-src http://falcon.landure.fr hardy games" \
| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hardy-landure-games.list
wget http://falcon.landure.fr/9FA7DC39.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install gridwars
You can now play to Grid Wars by clicking on Grid Wars shortcut in the Games menu of Gnome.

Installation

First, we add the repository containing xrick to our apt configuration :

echo "# Lone Wolf games packages for Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy Heron
deb http://falcon.landure.fr hardy games
deb-src http://falcon.landure.fr hardy games" \
| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hardy-landure-games.list

We download the GPG key used to sign this repository :

wget http://falcon.landure.fr/9FA7DC39.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -

We update the list of available packages :

sudo apt-get update

Thanks

Hi Pierre, your article really helped and even such noob user as I am (using Linux for 2nd day) managed to install the game on my Acer One. The problem is it has installed, half way asked for some libdsl package which I managed to get, but now when I try to launch it from shortcut absolutely nothing happens. Maybe u have any clues about what´s going on. Thanx anyway
