I tried this:
sudo killall esd
echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
but But it says Bash: /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss: File or folder does not excist.
don't use uberold tutorials that maybe don't work with more recent Linux versions (and also don't type commands if you don't have at least an idea about what they do)
I use Arch Linux so I can't help much with Ubuntu, but in order to have sound you need et-sdl-sound I think
EDIT: I've managed to get ET working, for now I only got issues with the sound and i can't seem to constrol my fps at the moment.
Even with /com_maxfps it won't change :s
are you sure it's not a drivers problem (like playing with vsync on?)
I never did really like playing it on Ubuntu. No custom configs, so everything was default settings and I never could figure out how to fix that except what you could change in the menu but it just was terrible in my opinion
Why no custom configs lol... it's the same as on Windows. You probably installed it wrong, or you don't know where the files for the configs are (i.e. ~/.etwolf)
Actually I'm just trying this out to see if it runs more smoothly or not
It won't run more smoothly if you run it under wine (which is a Windows emulator) you need to run the real Enemy Territory for Linux
by the way, if you use wine you should look in ~/.wine/drive_c
but really it makes no sense to me running it via wine when you have the native Linux one
About the console, the key on Linux is different for me (actually, it's the same if you use wine, I talk about the *real* ET for Linux) but I have an Italian keyboard so I don't know which key will open it for you. I need to press Alt Gr + a key near enter you probably don't have
