Since the prebuilt binaries don’t work in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS/Linux Mint 13, here’s a way to get it working.
git clone https://github.com/jdolan/quake2world.git
git clone https://github.com/jdolan/quake2world-data.git
sudo ln -s ~/source/q2w/quake2world-data/target /usr/local/share/quake2world
sudo apt-get install autoconf automake libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libphysfs-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev check
and then run the game:

Yeah you kind of forgot sudo make install at the end. Also I could not get ./configure to work until I added libxml2-dev.September 28, 2013 at 11:45 pm #69956madhi19 wrote:Yeah you kind of forgot sudo make install at the end. Also I could not get ./configure to work until I added libxml2-dev.
Sudo checkinstall is basically make install but it also creates a deb file.September 28, 2013 at 11:49 pm #69957linuxgnuru wrote:done and done; just let me know when/where we can play. Might want to PM that sore loser.

Fun game, especially for free. Pretty fast paced, and scratched my Q2 itch. Trick jumps seem even easier than vanilla Q2. Virtually NO players/servers tho… Which sux a sweaty taint.September 29, 2013 at 12:57 pm #69968
We should play sometime Thom.September 29, 2013 at 2:39 pm #69970
