    maybe run it as root (by prefixing 'sudo' to the start of the install command).

    alternatively, change your installation path so that it installs inside your /home directory.

    I've installed mine in /usr/local without any difficulty.

    Re: Installing Enemy Territory [Help!]

    There are 2 ways to install ET, and for a lot of games for that matter.

    If you run the installer by prefixing it with "sudo", it will install as a globally available application, ie it will be available to all users and accounts on your computer.

    If you don't use the "sudo" prefix, it will give you permission errors when you try to install it into it's default folders because a standard user does not have permission to do that, so what you need to do is change the folder (whenever it pops up and asks for a folder location) to "~/enemy-territory".

    The "~" means your home folder, and you can change "enemy-territory" to whatever you like.

    If you do a "global" install, any maps/mods that you download will (I believe) be stored in a hidden folder in your home folder: "~/.etwolf".

    Once installed you might like to add the ability to use teamspeak, or just to be able to play other sounds while ET is running.

    To enable that, add this at the end of the do_start() section in /etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh:

    Code:
    echo "et.x86 0 0 direct" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0p/oss
    echo "et.x86 0 0 disable" > /proc/asound/card0/pcm0c/oss
    Also, you will have to update punkbuster, download pbsetup.run from here:

    http://www.evenbalance.com/index.php?page=pbsetup.php

    And run it before you run ET.

    ...because you will be kicked from servers that require the latest version .

    If you're not getting kicked for outdated punkbuster then it doesn't matter I expect, but It was happening to me so I just thought I'd save you some hassles and recommend you do it beforehand.

    Re: Installing Enemy Territory [Help!]

    Seems like you are right about that.

    But I have problems installing it. No matter what I do I get errors. The name of the file is pbsetup.run. I tried out the following command with the following errors:

    Code:
    rune@rune-desktop:~$ sh pbsetup.run
    pbsetup.run: pbsetup.run: cannot execute binary file
    Code:
    rune@rune-desktop:~$ sudo sh pbsetup.run
    pbsetup.run: pbsetup.run: cannot execute binary file
    Code:
    rune@rune-desktop:~$ ./pbsetup.run
    bash: ./pbsetup.run: Permission denied
    Code:
    rune@rune-desktop:~$ sudo ./pbsetup.run
    sudo: ./pbsetup.run: command not found
    I also tried running it by double-clicking on the file, with no avail.

    What is wrong?

    You need to make it executable first. So open a terminal from the accessories menu and punch this in:

    chmod +x pbsetup.run

    Of course you will have to cd to the correct folder first .

    Now simply type:

    ./pbsetup.run

    And it should now run.

    You can also do that through Nautilus (or Konqueror if you use KDE) by right clicking on the file, selecting properties, and click on the permissions tab. Then click on "allow executing file as program".

    I did that and what I got was:
    bash: ./pbsetup.run: Permission denied


    any idea what's wrong?
