I get a weird problem in installing Quake 3 arena demo in Linux. Whenever I run the executable, it opens a new konsole and then I get dumped back to the command line with the message
konsole: ERROR: can not execute ././linuxq3ademo-1.11-6.x86.gz.sh
When I run ./linuxq3ademo-1.11-6.x86.gz.sh
I even tried running with sh linuxq3ademo-1.11-6.x86.gz.sh
and bash. But nothing works at all.
It's executable and all the permissions are correct
. When I run it in the pure text-mode I get more errors, presumably that the file cannot be identified as a gz, but I am unable to capture all those errors in a text file even when I tried to.
Has anybody been able to install Q3 arena demo of late? I don't have a powerful enough laptop to play Quake 4 Demo, so I'd prefer to use Quake 3.
Sorry if I'm unable to provide more error info, but the problem is that the shell script is not exactly user-friendly enough to dump an error log somewhere and I couldn't find any similar error mentioned on the web as well.
I downloaded the demo from the official id software ftp.
