Title: UQM-HD on Linux?
Post by: tjsnh on June 06, 2016, 01:46:20 pm
Hi All,

I tried to download the UQM-HD deb off of sourceforge but ran into errors installing (just using dpkg, nothing fancy - on xubuntu). I suspect I may have missed a step or missed some files, are there any quick guides out there to installing UQM-HD on Linux?

Thanks!

Update - turns out the issue is that I don't have mikmod2 installed, and am unable to find a convenient way to install it (libmikmod3 is the current, no packages for libmikmod2 that I can find).

Annoying - I didn't even plan on running the game with sound.

libmikmod is built into UQM so you shouldn't need an external source.

You have to make sure you have all the dependencies taken care of.

SDL 1.2

SDL_Image 1.2

zlib 1.2

libOgg / libVorbis

and optionally, OpenAL

You also have to make sure you are using GCC 3 and GNU Make 3.8.

Any higher and it will refuse to build without some serious restructuring to the code... I believe.

The non convenient way for Ubuntu is to enable legacy trusty repositories, then:

Code:
sudo apt-get -t trusty install libmikmod2-dev

Code:
yaourt -S uqm-hd
yaourt -S uqm-hd-sound

Worked fine in Manjaro Linux (and should presumably also work in Arch Linux).
