Installing Witcher 2 (GOG)

Postby Xanayoshi » Sat May 09, 2015 12:58 pm

This isn't especially difficult but I thought I might throw this out there if someone was having difficulties. I got this for free last year by clicking once a day or something along with a video. It is not especially prevalent that I do gaming on Linux as the mod aspect isn't quite there, but I do support what is on Linux especially if it falls in my interests.

Moving on...

So we have The Witcher 2..

Since I just ran through it w/o thinking I might post it is hard to do over, but in a nutshell
You will get a tar..untar
something like..
Code: Select all
cd Downloads

Code: Select all
tar -xvzf gog_the_witcher_2_assassins_of_kings_1.2.0.7.tar.gz


Then you will sigh as you look at all the spaces in "The Witcher 2 Assassin of Terminal Commands"
I renamed witty and moved to my home then
Code: Select all
cd witty

Code: Select all
./start.sh


and here is where there will be issues with dependencies, it will list them but is not so helpful as one might like as there is a bit of flux in Linux on a constant basis

They are listed here in witty(Witcher2)/game/Linux Release Notes.txt(ugh..spaces spaces spaces)

I go through them one by one just in case I need dependencies for the dependencies' dependencies, they are...
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-2.0-0:i386

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libsdl2-image-2.0-0:i386

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libgtk2.0-0:i386

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install libfreetype6:i386


then back to the game's main Folder and
Code: Select all
./start.sh

Your Graphics will not be auto so you will need to adjust...

If you have a controller you would like to use here is an easy way to get that to work..
Go to Terminal
Code: Select all
sudo reboot

Now log in to Windows, Start the Witcher 2, it should recognize your controller right away.

Have Fun!

I forgot to mention..

This should work on most Debian builds like Ubuntu and Ultimate Edition.

I updated/upgraded/dist-upgraded(not to 14.10(gross), but to whatever 14.04.?, either way, all zeros fully up to date, originally this was a Kubuntu 14.04 release candidate and it has XFCE installed for whatever reason I had that day. Probably crack, I'm thinking it was crack.

Wait no, it wasn't crack at all, I was testing to see if Compiz still worked..it does. That is all.
