Installation on Linux
Warning: these packages are not yet tested. Use them with caution.
Installation from packages
Install original game and WoG addon in this directory
This should give you such directory structure
/usr/share/vcmi/Data /usr/share/vcmi/Mp3 /usr/share/vcmi/Maps ...
Install VCMI data package in the same directory.
Download and install package for your distributive. To install package along with all dependencies:
sudo dpkg -i downloaded_package.deb sudo apt-get -f install
To start the game:
Other Debian-based distibutives
VCMI requires g++-4.5 and boost-1.46 which are unavailable on Debian stable and Ubuntu 10.10 or lower. If you'll manage to install them you can compile VCMI from source code.
Another (and probably more safe) option is to create chroot enviroment (how-to). This will allow to install package from another distributive.
Other Linux distibutives
Currently VCMI supports generation of .deb packages only. Patches to add support of other package formats are welcomed.
