...or, find it in the repo. I noticed that you use a 'buntu, it should be in the repo. Download/install it. Then, grab the legal copy
you own and look for files on the CD under /data/id1/, the files to look for are called pak0.pak
. Copy these and put them in the data folder, mine is at /usr/share/games/quake/id1, full path per file: /usr/share/games/quake/id1/pak0.pak
. Set permissions accordingly where needed, extra spicing is not needed...
All lower cases. Fire up the game in applications-games-quake and ... enjoy.
Could someone tell me where and how I can get a copy of quake for my Linux computer?
...if you refer to the "levels", aka the game data, that's located on the CD, or in a (free) shareware edition or, could be bought somewhere...please do not fall for the temptation to "just borrow it" from "someone"...
PS - it seems to work for the shareware edition as well, save for the pak files that obviously will not include the whole slaughter
