Savage 2 : Ubuntu Linux Installation Guide

A brief Savage 2 installation guide for 32 bit and 64 bit Ubuntu Linux.

When i download files from the internet they land on my desktop. So the secound line should be changed if you download files to elsewhere. Also, the version of Savage 2 at the time of writing this is Savage2Install-1.5.0. If the version you download is different you will have to change the path to the savage .bin file.

32 Bit

Enter the following lines into terminal.

mkdir ~/.Games
cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_32.bin
./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_32.bin

You will now get a graphical installer. It will ask you for a destination to install, if you just click next it will install and be visible in your home file so just change the destination path to /home/USERNAME/.Games/Savage2. That way it will install into your hidden ./games file.

64 bit

Enter the following lines into terminal.

mkdir ~/.Games
cd ~/Desktop
chmod +x Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin
./Savage2Install-1.5.0-x86_64.bin

You will now get a graphical installer. It will ask you for a destination to install, if you just click next it will install and be visible in your home file so just change the destination path to /home/USERNAME/.Games/Savage2. That way it will install into your hidden ./games file.

Savage 2 should now appear in your games menu. Now go kick some smelly humans about! GO BEAST! ^^

    I’m having a super hard time with this… I’m not too new to linux, and I know my way around the command line alright but the chmod goes fine for me but when I try to actually execute the file it says “jeffrey@jeffrey-mobile:~/Desktop$ ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin
    bash: ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin: Permission denied”
    Then I assumed Permission denied meant I needed root privileges. Then this happens “jeffrey@jeffrey-mobile:~/Desktop$ sudo ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin
    sudo: ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin: command not found”
    I’m at a total stand still and I used to play this game on my old PC but I can’t get this one to work

    Ooof havent looked here for ages…

    @ Jensen

    sudo: ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin: command not foundโ€

    Remove the : after sudo. It should just be :

    sudo ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin

    @ anyone with Avidals problem, i need some more info than just ‘goes down’. Describe the problem.

    @Nai
    Sorry about that. I should have specified input from output.
    Input command was: sudo ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin
    Output from that: sudo: ./Savage2Install-2.1.0-i686.bin: command not found
    I am wondering if I need some sort of library files installed and it’s not recognizing the [ ./ ] part of the code or I have some lib file installed I shouldn’t have which is conflicting. I would really hate to reformat and reinstall Kubuntu lol

    All you have to do is install it under /usr directory. From there you should be able to run it normally.
