How to Install Albion for Ubuntu 14.04

  • How to Install Albion for Ubuntu 14.04

    I am not quite sure what it is that I am doing wrong. I have tried installing manually, a few different ways.

    sudo get.app ./albion-online-setup
    with this I just get permission denied



    Ive attempted installing with a zip file.
    Albion-Online-Setup.zip


    another one
    $ chmod +777 albion-online-setup

    $ sudo ./albion-online-setup

    ive even tried this
    [/url]#!/bin/bash

    #Location for Download
    #Change the part within the " " to current client location
    DOWNLOAD="http://testing.albiononline.com/clients/Albion-Online-Client-Linux.zip"

    #Location for Install
    #Change this to match where you want this installed. If this directory does not exist it will be created for you.
    INSTALL=~/Downloads/

    #Client Name
    CLIENT=Albion-Online-Client-Linux.zip

    clear
    echo "Installing $CLIENT from $DOWNLOAD into $INSTALL"
    echo " "
    #checks to see if the install directory exists, if it doesn't then the directory is created.
    if cd $INSTALL; then
    echo "Directory exists. Downloading zip from $DOWNLOAD"
    echo " "
    else
    echo "Directory doesn't exist. Creating it"
    echo " "
    mkdir $INSTALL
    cd $INSTALL
    fi

    #checks to see if the .zip on the server is newer than the .zip stored locally
    if wget -N $DOWNLOAD; then
    echo "Client up to date"
    else
    echo "Downloading Update..."
    fi

    #checks for any missing/damaged files
    unzip -u $CLIENT
    echo "Update complete. Check above for any errors."
    echo "Launching Game..."

    #Launches Game
    "$INSTALL"Linux/x64/Albion-Online


    I am somewhat new to Linux, so that could be the issue here but Im out of ideas please help if you can.

    You need x64 system. This message usually appear, when you are trying to install AO under x32, which is not supported.

    It also may be done from Nautilus GUI instead of command line.
    Open file properties and set executable check box on.
    Apply, double click.

  • I experienced the same thing as Uozyddam but when I ran:

    sudo apt-get install libSDL2-2.0-0

    but received this back:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree
    Reading state information... Done
    Note, selecting 'libsdl2-2.0-0' for glob 'libSDL2-2.0-0'

    I've tried the executable box check. I've tried the libSDL2. But the game still closes instantly on play! Why??

    OS: Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    Memory: 3.7GB
    Processor: Intel® Core™ i3 CPU M 370 @ 2.40GHz × 4
    Graphics: Intel® Ironlake Mobile

    don't laugh at the specs, I had Albion working on Windows 7 no problem, decided to move fully to Linux, and now I'm hopelessly confused and no closer to playing the game than I was 12 hours ago. Should I just partition my drive and restore Win7? Or run a virtual machine? Tried to install and play it off Wine/PlayonLinux but no dice, couldn't even start the launcher from the .exe

    hopefully someone will see this or one of the other posts I've put on this forum over the past day and night and help me.

  • I think it's been installed correctly? or that part at least.

    sudo apt-get install libSDL2-2.0-0

    libsdl2-2.0-0 is already the newest version (2.0.4+dfsg1-2ubuntu2).
    The following package was automatically installed and is no longer required:
    snap-confine
    Use 'sudo apt autoremove' to remove it.
    0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

    My old 'shiba only has the proprietary intel driver, and that's also up to date.

    I'd say it's just shitty hardware if I hadn't played 4 hours of Albion the night before!
