I'm new to Ubuntu but have made good progress (including XBMC/Gotham (very cool)) until attempting to install the game. System is: Intel motherboard QD965GF, 4G Ram, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS.
I have the original Quake II (quake2) cdrom (for Windows 95 or NT 4.0) and have recently installed it on an XP based computer with no problems.
I installed "Quake II" from the Ubuntu Software Center (shows as "Version quake 2 7" from there.)
sudo lshw -class disk returns:
*-disk description: ATA Disk product: ST90811AS vendor: Seagate physical id: 0.0.0 bus info: scsi@0:0.0.0 logical name: /dev/sda version: 3.AA serial: 5NH137DG size: 55GiB (60GB) capabilities: partitioned partitioned:dos configuration: ansiversion=5 sectorsize=512 signature=0008d34d *-cdrom description: DVD reader product: DVD C DH52C2S vendor: ATAPI physical id: 0.0.0 bus info: scsi@1:0.0.0 logical name: /dev/cdrom logical name: /dev/sr0 version: NP57 capabilities: removable audio cd-r cd-rw dvd configuration: ansiversion=5 status=nodisc
(please note that the disk is in the drive as the last line above shows
status=nodisk) and the DVD drive is fine as it plays audio CDs and DVDs.
game-data-packager quake2 returns:
to make quake2-full-data: game-data-packager quake2 [--full] [<full game>] [<patch>] <full game>: path to CD-ROM mount point or baseq2 directory <patch>: path to q2-3.20-x86-full-ctf.exe
The system returns messages such as
using /dev/cdrom as CD-ROM block device to rip music /usr/games/game-data-packager: 'cdparanoia' is required for this target. Please install the following packages: and try again. rmdir: failed to remove ‘/tmp/game-data-packager.E0cjlv’: Directory not empty"
At this point, I'm at a loss. Would someone be willing to access my system and attempt this installation? Thanks, Paul.
