I am new to Ubuntu. Please tell me how to install the latest version of Urban Terror. Step by step answer would be great.
Ubuntu – How to install latest version of Urban Terror on Ubuntu 12.04
There are five ways to install NitroShare on Ubuntu:
Use the Archives (16.04+)
You can install the nitroshare package directly from the universe repository by executing the following commands:
sudo apt-get install nitroshare
Use the Stable PPA (recommended for older releases)
The stable PPA contains all of the packages necessary to run NitroShare and is considered stable enough for everyday use:
ppa:george-edison55/nitroshare (Click here for instructions on using PPAs.)
To add this PPA to your computer and install NitroShare, open a terminal and run the following commands:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:george-edison55/nitroshare sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nitroshare
Use the Development PPA (unstable)
The development PPA contains daily builds of the packages that comprise NitroShare. Some of the features may be broken or incomplete. For this reason, its use is discouraged for any purpose other than testing or debugging:
ppa:george-edison55/nitroshare-dev (Click here for instructions on using PPAs.)
The commands for installing NitroShare from the development PPA are similar to the ones for the stable PPA.
Use the Binary Packages
Binary packages (DEBs) are provided for Ubuntu 14.04+. They can be downloaded from the official NitroShare website:
Once the DEB package is downloaded, you can launch it to open the Software Center to complete the installation.
Build NitroShare from Source (difficult)
If you are really ambitious, you can build NitroShare directly from source. First, you will need to ensure that all of the packages needed for building NitroShare are installed. To do that, run the following command:
sudo apt-get install qt5-default libqt5svg5-dev libgtk2.0-dev \ libappindicator-dev libnotify-dev
Visit this page and grab the
.tar.gz download for the latest release (0.3.0 at the time of writing). Then run the following commands to build everything:
tar xf nitroshare-0.3.0.tar.gz cd nitroshare-0.3.0 qmake make
To install the application, run the following command:
sudo make install
You will then be able to run NitroShare using the
A few relatively easy steps are required to get the very latest version of Warzone 2100 and run it under Xenial Xerus:
1. Activate the Source Repositories:
Follow this path to activate software sources:
Dash > Software & Updates > Ubuntu Software > Source Code
After clicking on 'Source Code' allow the repositories to reload.
2. Download the dependencies:
We use both the dependencies for the older Warzone 2100 package as well as some extras required by the newer version:
sudo apt-get build-dep warzone2100 sudo apt-get install checkinstall qt5-default qtscript5-dev libsdl2-dev libssl-dev
3. Download, compile, package and install:
The following single command will look after the rest of the installation, simply copy and paste the whole command into a Terminal window:
mkdir ~/Desktop/warzone_build && cd ~/Desktop/warzone_build && \ wget http://ufpr.dl.sourceforge.net/project/warzone2100/releases/\ 3.2.1/warzone2100-3.2.1.tar.xz && \ tar xvf warzone2100-3.2.1.tar.xz && cd warzone2100-3.2.1 && \ ./configure && make -j 4 && \ sudo checkinstall --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop/warzone_build" \ --backup=no --deldoc=yes --pkgname warzone2100 --pkgversion 3.2.1 \ --fstrans=no --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --default
You may need to log out and then log back in before Dash sees the game but otherwise we are done :).
Unless of course you want some intro and 'cut-scene' movies for the game:
3. Optional: Install the movies:
There are some nice, high quality movies to download that integrate nicely with the game. Note that the high quality set is a reasonable download at 965MB.
First create the download folder if it does not already exist:
Then grab the high quality compressed movie files with the following single command:
cd ~/.warzone2100-3.2.1 && \ wget http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/project/warzone2100/\ warzone2100/Videos/high-quality-en/sequences.wz
And now we are really done!
4. Enjoy the game:

The standard solution is to add getdeb games repository and install the games from there. The problem is that the original getdeb repositories are bit unreliable as they often go down. Therefore better option is to add getdeb repository mirror that has all the same stuff and is more reliable. The downside is that updates come with slight delay but I would not worry about that.
Easy way to add repository is by opening Software center and Edit-> Software sources -> Other software -> Add (or something like that :) In the case of getdeb mirror enter this line (you can remove "apps" if you don't want to get also software from there):
If you are also interested in the source code then you can also add this the same way:
If after adding repositories close Software center, open Terminal and enter (you can copy this - in terminal copy/paste can only be done with mouse) this:
At this point you would also need to enter your password. If that doesn't produce any errors (as it shouldn't) you just managed add new software sources to your Ubuntu.
You can now install Urban Terror by opening Software center and searching for it. Alternative is to continue in the terminal:
After some waiting you can start shooting.
UPDATE: If somebody is reading this to learn how to install the game on any other version than 12.04 (Precise) then replace the "precise" in the repository line with your version of Ubuntu. For example:
deb http://mirrors.dotsrc.org/getdeb/ubuntu saucy-getdeb apps games
The same thing from command line:
The original answer also did not include information about adding the repository key. This can be done from command line with:
Or one could download the repository key file and import it at the "Authentication" tab of "Software and updates" window.
