quake2


a real quickie (really dumb too, but i cant find the answer anywhere i've looked all day).
ok im trying to get quake2 running on my slackware8 machine. ive copied the data folders from a window$ installation (baseq2&action) and put them on my linux hard disk in /home/games/quake2. ive installed the libc5.tar.gz binary and edited the quake2.conf file (in /etc) to point to the above directory, but when i try to run quake2 it says 'coundn't find program 'quake2''. i'd guess this is a pretty simple question, but just if any of you people know what mistake i'm making id be most greatful.
thanks.

Copy it to /home/games/.quake2 folder, which is hidden. Then go to that folder and try to run the game from /.quake2.

/.quake2 isn't a hidden folder. quake2 is an execuatble within the /home/games/quake2 folder. ive got my browser set to show hidden files and it ain't there. i still can't get it to work. any other ideas?
thanks

Really? I just installed Return to Castle Wolfenstein, and I have a /.wolfenstein dir that's hidden, and a /wolfenstein dir that's not. These two dirs are located within this same parent dir. Running the executable from the /wolfenstein dir gives me the error 'couldn't find program wolfsp'; however, I don't get that error using the executable in /.wolfenstein.

try going here.....

http://www.icculus.org/quake2/

download the cdless installer i think version 0.13 or something like that. I installed q2 many times in linux. I now have it down pat with no problems. I have tried the other installers on that page i sent you and the best is 0.13. Let me know what happens.
