UbuntuHere all my notes taken during the last installation experience of ubuntu desktop 10.10 32  bit.

I am a fan of an old game, Quake III Area. I got big problems with audio....

  • Windows Font for Linux when contected to Internet
  • Chrome
  • Java
  • Filezilla
  • Gimp
  • gPHPEdit
  • Lotus Notes 8.5.2
  • Quake III 1.31
  • ATI Catalyst Video Graphic Driver

 

ALSA (Advanced Linux Sound Architecture)

  • sudo apt-get install alsa-oss

 

WINDOWS FONTS

  • sudo apt-get install ttf-ubuntu-font-family
  • sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

forse uno esclude l'altro...il primo sembra solo per ubuntu 10.10

 

CHROME

 

JAVA

  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sun-java-community-team/sun-java6
  • sudo apt-get update
  • sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jre sun-java6-jdk

Steps found on GeekItalia

 

QUAKE 3

  • wget http://www.byman.it/downloads/q3linux/linuxq3apoint-1.31.x86.run
  • chmod +x linuxq3apoint-1.31.x86.run
  • export _POSIX2_VERSION=199209
  • mkdir /home/byman/games
  • chmod +x linuxq3apoint-1.31.x86.run
  • ./linuxq3apoint-1.31.x86.run
    PATH
    /home/byman/quake3
    /home/byman/
  • Copy pak0.pk3 into /home/byman/games/quake3/baseq3

 

QUAKE 3 COMMON PROBLEM

  • Audio
  • Video OpenGL

 

Audio Problem

  • This solution DID NOT solved my audio problem : audio was really poor with echo. 

Video Problem

This one can solve OpenGL Error ( I didnt use it because I got problem with ati drivers with my custom kernel)

  • Run quake with the following parameter : 
    • quake3 codered +set r_gldriver libGL.so.1.
    • go to the ubuntu forum for more details.

 

UBUNTU 10.10 - QUAKE3 - SSO SUPPORT - SOLVED

"The ubuntu developers decided the majority of people don’t need OSS support, so they compiled the kernel without it."

I found this info and the solution in a really good blog :  Vanvalkinburgh.org

Solution : 

compiling a custom kernel adding during the process OSS module...see the Vanvalkinburgh.org links in the references section.

 

USEFUL LINUX COMMANDS

  • aplay -l
  • lspci -v
  • apt-get remove fglrx => remove ati drivers
  • sudo gedit /etc/default/grub (edit the default boot order)
  • sudo update-grub (apply the changes done after edit the grumb file)
