Debian

Note: I have only used Debian SID and Sarge (Stable, 3.1). These instructions may not work for the old Debian stable - Woody (3.0).

How to install Cedega

Download and place cedega_*.deb in the any directory you want, for instance, your home directory.

  • open a terminal: Alt+F2, type gnome-terminal or xterm and hit Enter ↵
  • switch to root: su <kbd class="keystyle">Enter ↵</kbd> (enter your root password)
  • use dpkg to install the package: dpkg -i cedega*.deb

How to install Point2Play Small

Download and place point2play-small*.deb in the any directory you want, for instance, your home directory.

  • open a terminal: Alt+F2, type gnome-terminal or xterm and hit Enter ↵
  • switch to root: su <kbd class="keystyle">Enter ↵</kbd> (enter your root password)
  • use dpkg to install the package: dpkg -i point2play-small*.deb
  • Note point2play-small requires python libraries to be installed and will use the native gtk2 theme. If you have issues with Point2Play-small then install the full Point2Play package. Doing this will give you an ugly gtk2 theme on your Point2Play.

AMD64

Most 32 bit binaries will work fine in a pure64 bit environment like Debian Sarge. Command line Cedega does not work reliably on AMD64 Debian. Other 32 bit games like Neverwinter Nights and Doom3 do work fine in pure64 using 32 bit libraries.

If you wish to use command-line Cedega, build a 32 bit chroot. There are 2 ways to do this that I know of.

  • Install a 32 bit Debian into a second partition or second hard drive.
  • Use debootstrap to build a clean 32 bit chroot

The first option was the easiest for me. As I already had a 32 bit partition from my old system when I upgraded. Having a separate 32 bit OS installed can also be useful to test to see if the libraries are setup properly.

More information on deboostrapping a clean 32 bit chroot can be found in the AMD 64 Howto.

To use Point2Play, download the -small Debian package, and install it with:

dpkg -i --force-architecture point2play-small_fooversion_i386.deb.

You will need to install the python-glade2 package yourself with:

aptitude install python-glade2

as this package is missing from the -small package's Depends: list.
