    How do I install Vegastrike on Ubuntu 12.04?

    I download Vega Strike 0.5.1.r1 from this link:

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/vega...r.bz2/download

    I extracted the archive and ran

    Code:
    sudo sh vsinstall.sh
    I get the following output when I answer "yes" to all the installation questions:

    ==== VEGA STRIKE 0.5.0 ====


    I am installing 64-bit binaries.

    This script needs your password to link the following commands
    into '/usr/bin': vegastrike vegaserver vssetup mesher

    Do you wish to grant administrator access to install these binaries?
    Type yes or no: yes
    Installation successful!

    Do you want to run 'vssetup'? [yes]/no? yes
    vsinstall.sh: 108: vsinstall.sh: vssetup: not found
    Settings should now be configured.

    Type 'vegastrike' at a terminal to play VS! Press any key to exit.
    I looked on Vega Strike's site, but I don't see anything about vssetup. How do I install this program on Ubuntu? It isn't in the repositories.

    Have you visited the VS wiki site?
    http://vegastrike.sourceforge.net/wi...:Install#Linux

    I don't have that program anymore but do you want to install? I would just run it from a link I put in the menu.

    This was in the playdeb repositories which are currently down at the time of writing this post. Nonetheless, a simple apt-get install guide is found here:

    That install guide is obsolete, because the ubuntu repo's contain only vegastrike-data and vegastrike-music. The binaries aren't there and haven't been since at least 10.04.
