installing ET on ubuntu 9.10 libgtk1.2 help!!

Question

Hello

i have 32bit pc i think and

i tried to install ET on my ubuntu and tried:

sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2

and it says it no longer available to download

Package libgtk1.2 is not available, but is referred to by another package.

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

is only available from another source

E: Package libgtk1.2 has no installation candidate

 

please help!!

taken from Roar forums.

credit goes to range_

 

I think I can help you.

 

Terminal: Applications > Accessories > Terminal

 

Enter this commands one by one:

 

2.55: wget http://ftp.games.skynet.be/pub/wolfenstein/et-linux-2.55.x86.run

2.60: wget http://ftp.games.skynet.be/pub/wolfenstein/et-linux-2.60.x86.run

 

You will need libgtk1.2: sudo apt-get install libgtk1.2

 

Add permissions: chmod +x et-linux-2.55.x86.run

 

Install:./et-linux-2.55.x86.run(adminstrator password needed)

 

Oh wait, 9.10 users are reporting difficulties in installing libgtk1.2, follow this thing to install properly.

 

This will open the file sources.list obviously.

 

Code:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

 

 

 

Scroll to the bottom and add the following:

 

Code:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/'>http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/'>http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/'>http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty universe

deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty universe

 

 

 

Now save and close the file, return to terminal and enter the following.

 

Code:

sudo aptitude update && aptitude install libgtk1.2(Pw needed I think)

 

 

 

Edit the sources.list again.

 

Code:

sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list

 

 

 

Remove it.

 

Code:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty universe

deb-src http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ jaunty universe

 

 

 

EDIT: About the language, sudo aptitude install language-pack-en does it.

 

Yes, couldn't be simplier. cheers

thank you very much :)

I just woke up so il post if i get it working or not

 

You will not have sound.. There are a few methods to use to enable the sound.

 

 

 

I am actually having the biggest noob issue, and I cannot figure out what I am missing. So I want to put my cfg in my etmain folder, but as we all know you cannot drag and drop because you do not have permission. So I try to move from the terminal and it tells me there is no such directory of /user/local/games/enemy-territory/etmain

 

What the hell am I missing? sudo mv w0nder.cfg ./dir/dir/dir/dir

Never mind I was being retarded..

 

Got it figured out

 

chmod a+rwx /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etmain

hmm I dont think so... Try this

 

sudo -i

echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

echo "et.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss

et

 

Each line is a new command obviously.. Now when et starts if this works you can make a script to start ET with this otherwise you have to do it everytime you restart PC

 

EXAMPLE:

 

gksudo echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss

gksudo echo "et.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss

killall esd

et

esd

exit 0

 

I forgot to mention that the ESD sound server has been killed in the script. Some people do not need to do this but I did

 

Save as txt then use commands to give it executable permissions and to put it in your usr.local/games yada yada

 

Then just start from script, I am sorry if this makes no sense I am not that great at explaining things

 

Almost forgot..you need to give permissions or you wont download maps. at least I did

 

sudo chown -R user:group ~/.etwolf/

 

(your user and group are probably the same unless you changed groups)

chmod a+rwx /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etmain

 

Ubuntu 9.04

tim@damnMachine:~$ chmod a+rwx /usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etmain

chmod: changing permissions of `/usr/local/games/enemy-territory/etmain': Operation not permitted

tim@damnMachine:~$

 

would seem that doesn't work for everyone.... :(

 

I was so hopeful too.. :P

-----------------------------------------------

ah. I may have had a retarded moment as well

 

first: sudo -i

log in as root :)
