Installing openmw-0.17.0 in Kubuntu 12.04

Post by beerbunny » 02 Sep 2012, 18:21

Hi all.
I was delighted when I saw that openMW catered for Linux users. At the moment, I can run the game in Wine, which works, but is pretty slow, or I can run it in Windows 7 with all the bells and whistles provided by Morrowwind Overhaul. I'd prefer to run it in Linux, however.

So I downloaded openmw-0.17.0-Linux-64Bit.tar.gz and extracted it. I read the Readme file which tells Linux users to download the .deb file and install it in the usual way.

Two problems; 1. The most recent .deb file is quite old (and tells me that there are dependency problems, but doesn't appear to tell me what they are).

2. Once I've extracted the tar.gz file, I can't get any of the executables to run.

Can anybody assist, please?

Thanks,

John

You are welcome. I guess someone should update the installation instructions in the readme file before the next release.
