Howto: unreal tournament 2004 on the new Ubuntu 11.04 Natty Narwhal

I assume you have already installed the game..

Since the libstdc++5 is no more in the repo, let’s download from here:

(choose your correct version, that is 32 or 64bit, and install it)

Then download the 3369-2 patch:

Copy and replace everything (default path /usr/local/games/ut2004/), if you prefer by graphical interface just run nautilus in root mode:

sudo nautilus

Now if you are on 64bit, just modify these file:

sudo gedit /usr/local/games/ut2004/ut2004

and substitute lines

if [ -x “${UT2004_DATA_PATH}/ut2004-bin” ]

exec “./ut2004-bin” $*


if [ -x “${UT2004_DATA_PATH}/ut2004-bin-linux-amd64” ]

exec “./ut2004-bin-linux-amd64” $*

And you are done

Ps: if you have problem with the sound, just run ut2k4 with aoss:

aoss ut2004

Hope its useful 🙂

Ubuntu karmic 9.10 and Unreal Tournament

After the installation, just install the, you can find it here 🙂

Then, if you running on a 64bit you will need to do a little modify

sudo gedit /usr/local/games/ut2004/ut2004

Then, add after the exec something, in order to be like this 🙂

# Let’s boogie!
if [ -x “${UT2004_DATA_PATH}/ut2004-bin” ]
cd “${UT2004_DATA_PATH}/”
exec “./ut2004-bin-linux-amd64” $*
echo “Couldn’t run UT2004 (ut2004-bin). Is UT2004_DATA_PATH set?”
exit 1

Finally, the link under Application -> Other, will work B-)
