Installing Eternal Lands on Ubuntu

This guide is for Ubuntu (we have some sudo apt getting at the beginning) but is easily translatable to other distros.

Ok, first we will need a few things, open terminal and type / copy paste the following :

sudo apt-get install libsdl-net1.2 libsdl-image1.2 libglu1-mesa libcal3d12

Hop over to Eternal Lands download page and grab the Linux download and the sound download.

Personally i download all things to my desktop, if you download stuff to elsewhere you will need to tweak this a bit.


mkdir -p ~/.Games/EternalLands
cd ~/Desktop
unzip el_180_linux.zip
cd el_install
chmod +x el.x86-64.linux.bin
mv * ~/.Games/EternalLands

Now we need to add in the sound file.

cd ~/Desktop
unzip el_sound_150.zip -d ~/.Games/EternalLands

You should be ready to go 🙂 Hope someone finds this useful!
