OpenArena is a quake-like game. This Game is crashing upon beginning a fight within the game. Character models can be loaded, as seen within the character options.

Seems like some important stuff but I dunno: The text in the terminal when the game crashes-

  ----- Client Shutdown (Received signal 11) -----
 RE_Shutdown( 1 )
 OpenAL capture device closed.
 ----- Server Shutdown (Received signal 11) -----
 tty]Segmentation fault (core dumped)

The weird Quake 3 symbol in the launch menu-

enter image description here

This is all I could gather.

Try to download Open Arena from their site http://www.openarena.ws/download.php?view.4 Unzip file and run openarena.x86_64 Downloaded version (0.8.8) works fine on my computer, while open arena from ubuntu repository have same bug.


As it seems the package in the apt repository is broken.

Try the flatpak version:

flatpak install flathub ws.openarena.OpenArena
