Install and play Doom, Ultimate Doom, Doom II...on Linux

Postby legluondunet » Sat Oct 10, 2020 11:05 am

Hello,
just to inform you that Linux gamers can now easily install and play Doom-like games on Linux with GZDoom.
Simply install Lutris on your Linux Distribution:
https://lutris.net/downloads/
then click on "install" button on your preferred Doom game:

https://lutris.net/games/doom-1993/
https://lutris.net/games/the-ultimate-doom/
https://lutris.net/games/doom-ii-hell-on-earth/
https://lutris.net/games/master-levels-for-doom-ii/
https://lutris.net/games/final-doom/
https://lutris.net/games/heretic/
https://lutris.net/games/hexen-beyond-heretic/

I wrote some of this Lutris installer scripts, so you can report me here your experience.
I found and used massive information from this forum, big thanks to all ZDoom devs and members for that.

Have good game.

Note to anybody that plans on reporting this: AS FAR AS I CAN TELL, none of these install scripts contain the commercial IWADs themselves. I've investigated this before for somebody else - the scripts almost universally require either the GOG or Steam game files in some form or another. Though if anybody can prove otherwise, do feel free to Report this thread again with evidence.

Maybe I should introduce Lutris to you before posting the script installers links to avoid any misunderstandings :)
So Lutris is a games platform developed for Linux which aims to make the life of Linux gamers much easier.
This software helps them install the games they own under Linux, whether Windows, Dos, Linux, Consoles, emulators ...
To be clear, you will need to own games or provide data for the games you own during installation.
The installation of the games is automated by scripts developed by the community, the players only have to click on “Install” and “Play”.
This tool is intended for Linux beginners as well as experienced users who want to spend more time playing than hacking.

For the more curious:
