The reason I'm posting this is because all guides regarding the dependencies seem to be outdated. So I hunted everything down and made this guide.

1. Installing Dependencies
Run the following commands as root/super user:


Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
dpkg --add-architecture i386
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
apt update
Code: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
apt install libc6:i386 libdrm2:i386 libexpat1:i386 libgcc1:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libglapi-mesa:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libx11-xcb1:i386 libxau6:i386 libxcb1:i386 libxcb-dri2-0:i386 libxcb-dri3-0:i386 libxcb-glx0:i386 libxcb-present0:i386 libxcb-sync1:i386 libxdamage1:i386 libxdmcp6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxshmfence1:i386 libxxf86vm1:i386 libasound2:i386, libasound2-plugins:i386 libsdl2-2.0-0:i386 libtxc-dxtn-s2tc0:i386

2. Downloading ET: Legacy
Since the original client is outdated and uses OSS instead of Alsa, you'll want to use You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.

MAKE SURE YOU DOWNLOAD THE 32-BIT INSTALLER! The 64-bit version isn't compatible with like 80% of the servers.

3. Installing
Make the script executable and run it. The instructions are pretty straightforward. just a couple notes though:

- DO NOT attempt to overwrite any previous installation.
- Make sure you say yes when it asks you to download and install the Enemy Territory files

Arch/Manjaro users can build it from the You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login and get the package snapshots you want... Extract to a temp directory and run makepkg to build them or do it the unsupported way with trizen, yaourt or yay.
