Topic: Ubuntu/Debian Packages
opensonic: 0.1.4-2 (2012-09-06)
opensonic-extra: 0.1.4~1 (2011-05-25)
allegro4.4: 2:4.4.2-2 (2012-09-06)
opensurge: 0.2.0~rev720-1 (2012-09-06)
Ubuntu - PPA Launchpad Repository
Supported architectures: i386, amd64
Supported systems: lucid, natty, oneiric, precise, quantal
If you don't know how to install packages from Launchpad, read this:
Note: Finally I've finished native builds for oneiric and newer systems.
Note 2: Since Allegro 4.4 appeared in Ubuntu Quantal official repositories, I modified opensurge_0.2.0~rev720-1quantal1 to use these official packages instead of mine. Unfortunately I wasn't able to do the same with old opensonic_0.1.4-2quantal1 because of the lack of Logg library in these official packages.
I recommend you to try Ubuntu Launchpad repositories - they should work fine on Debian system.
Here are some my packages created during the testing on squeeze i386 and wheezy amd64
(opensurge_amd64 uses allegro4.4 from Debian official repository)
To install Open Sonic from these packages take the following steps:
1. Create a new folder and download to it the following packages: opensonic, opensonic-data, liballeg4.4
2. Open the folder with these packages in a terminal and run the command (with root privileges):
dpkg -i *.deb
3. If you encounter some errors while installing the game, run after installation:
apt-get install -f
This will download the missing dependencies.
Sound and music
With the newest version of Allegro (4.4.2) sound and music should finally work "out of the box" on ubuntu and debian systems. If you still don't have sound with these packages:
1. Write to me about it!
2. Read this tutorial.
