How To Install Urban Terror On Ubuntu 13.04

Here is a guide to install Urban Terror on Ubuntu 13.04.

Urban Terror™ is a free multiplayer first person shooter developed by FrozenSand, that (thanks to the ioquake3-code) does not require Quake III Arena anymore. Urban Terror can be described as a Hollywood tactical shooter; somewhat realism based, but the motto is “fun over realism”. This results in a very unique, enjoyable and addictive game. No registration required: Download, install, play!

To install Urban Terror download the UrTUpdater file, extract the content of the UrbanTerror42.tar.gz file to a location you want, open a terminal window and run the UrTUpdater file. I downloaded the game files in a folder called Games in my Home folder. Because you download the game files instead of installing them there is no launcher added to your system. You can start the game by double clicking on the Quake3-UrT.i386 or Quake3-UrT.x86_64 file so i created a launcher using alacarte menu maker. When making the launcher you can also add an icon to it but the game comes without an icon. I downloaded this icon and added the icon to my Urban Terror folder.



First download the file from the page below

When the installation is finished you can close the terminal window.
