 Play one of 1997's best games on your Linux machine then here you go (you will need the original Quake2 CD).

Download and install the quake2-data package from any of these mirrors: http://packages.ubuntu.com/dapper/all/quake2-data/download

You will then need to insert the CD, and run the following command at the console:

sudo dpkg-reconfigure quake2-data

You will need to insert the CD mount point, on Ubuntu this is probably /media/Quake2

If you opt to install the point release update then you will also have to specify where to download the file to. /home will work fine.

Once this is done you will need to download a Linux compatible Quake2 engine - I used yamagi (download the yamagi quake2 deb) http://deponie.yamagi.org/quake2/debs/i386/yamagi-quake2_2.11-1_i386.deb

Then just run yamagiq2 from the terminal, and have Fun!
