Several download links on that page...which did you click??

And since that's an Ubuntu package, try "apt-get armagetronad"

root@cannabis Downloads]# file armagetronad-0.2.8.2.1.i686-generic-linux-gnu.package
armagetronad-0.2.8.2.1.i686-generic-linux-gnu.package: Bourne-Again shell script text executable
root@cannabis Downloads]#
so, make the file executable
Code:
chmod +x armagetronad-0.2.8.2.1.i686-generic-linux-gnu.package
and execute it
Code:
./armagetronad-0.2.8.2.1.i686-generic-linux-gnu.package

why do people not read and research ???

artem k. --- what destro are you using?
from this
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...archid=3847373
i gather you are using Ubuntu ? right?

Please put this information in your profile so we do not have to look for it . Thank's
and until you get a good handle on building software and installing "generic" packages i would stick with using "apt-get" -- YOUR PACKAGE manager for Ubuntu .
