Wesnoth 1.12 for Ubuntu 14.04/Mint 17/Greenie 14 - easy way

Post by Elven »

Hello everyone. If you want to play Wesnoth on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, or something very similar, you simply have to open a terminal (try control + t) and use this lines:


(adding keys)

Code: Select all

wget -q -O - http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
(this one will add getdeb to your sources.list, so you can install Wesnoth AND other games in Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)

Code: Select all

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu trusty-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
(use this one instead, if you are using Ubuntu 14.10 non-LTS)

Code: Select all

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu utopic-getdeb games" >> /etc/apt/sources.list.d/getdeb.list'
(updating sources AND installing Wesnoth with campaigns, editor etc.)

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install wesnoth-1.12
Okay, game should be in your applications menu right now. Downloading WILL take a while, so you can get a coffee :)

Thank you, Elven. I can't install the game from the source since 1.8.
