Debian 5 (Lenny)
Linux kernel: 2.6.26-2-686
Gnome: 2.22.3

Download the Urban Terror zip file (UrbanTerror_41_FULL) from here: Urban Terror Downloads

I put it in my home folder. Right click the file and choose Extract Here. That will put a folder named UrbanTerror in your home directory. Open that folder. I’m running Debian Lenny 32 bit so I will be using the ioUrbanTerror.1386 file. Right click that file. Choose Properties. Go to the Permissions tab. Put a check next to Allow executing file as program. Then close that panel. Now go back to the UrbanTerror folder in your home directory and double click ioUrbanTerror.i386 and you should be in business.

I need a shortcut on my desktop. Right click the desktop. Select Create Launcher. Type is Application. Where it say’s Name, type Urban Terror 4.1 . Command is the command used to launch Urban Terror. To find this, navigate to the Urban Terror folder in your home directory. Find the ioUrbanTerror.i386 file. Right click that file. Under the Basic tab, you will see Location. Highlight and copy the location.It will look something like this: /home/your_user_name/UrbanTerror. Now past that location in the command field in the Creat Launcher Panel. Then add ioUrbanTerror.i386 on the end of it. It should look something like this:

Command: /home/your_user_name/UrbanTerror/ioUrbanTerror.i386

Hit OK on the create launcher panel and you should be good. Double click on the Urban Terror shortcut you just made on your desktop and you should be on your way.

I had help from here: Review + Howto install Urban Terror on Linux , so check it out.

Next I think I’ll install Wolfenstein Enemy Territory. We’ll see.
