drm-free linux install





I've just bought the linux drm-free version from gog.com. I downloaded the tarball and decompressed it to some location as the readme specifies (there are installers for windows and mac but it seems none for linux). However I cannot save games and I wanted to know how to install the game properly so that it appears in my Games menu and I can save the game.


Thank you for your help.

Not sure what readme you are referring to, the gog package does not contain one.


As for not able to save games: is the install directory writeable to your user? Or did you unpack it somewhere while being root? I just unpacked the gog tar.gz to "$HOME/games/Pillars of Eternity/". Works just fine.


Integration in the games menu. You didn't tell what desktop environment you have, but this probably works just fine. I've created a .desktop file:

[Desktop Entry]
Name=Pillars of Eternity
Exec="/home/kiza/games/Pillars of Eternity/start.sh"
Icon=/home/kiza/games/Pillars of Eternity/game/PillarsOfEternity.png

Cut&paste, change the paths of Exec and Icon accordingly and save the file under $HOME/.local/share/application/pillars_of_eternity.desktop

Should turn up in the game menu.
