I was just hit Runescape nostalgia, and realized they now support Linux ! (was this always the case?) As expected, it wasn’t as simple as simple as downloading it on PC or Mac, but then again, where would the fun be?
Runescape’s website tells you to run the following commands in order to install:
sudo -s -- << EOF
wget -O - https://content.runescape.com/downloads/ubuntu/runescape.gpg.key | apt-key add -
mkdir -p /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb https://content.runescape.com/downloads/ubuntu trusty non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/runescape.list
apt-get install -y runescape-launcher
What they don’t tell you is that you need to run the following before.
sudo wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/161405671/libglew1.10_1.10.0-3_amd64.deb
sudo dpkg -i libglew1.10_1.10.0-3_amd64.deb
I’m too lazy to figure out what the root issue is… but maybe this will help one of you suckers wanting to play Runescape also
