Use the following instructions:

  1. Install the repository in one of the following ways:

    1. Install the playdeb package.

    2. Or configure the repository manually:

      Go to System-Administration-Software Sources, Third-Party Software tab, Add:

      deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu -getdeb games

      Add the repository GPG key, open a terminal window and type:

      wget -q -O- http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -
  2. Click the "Install this now" button below the screenshot of the desired game.

  3. If you are using Kubuntu please check bug 476853.

  4. If the game cannot be found, run this command and try again:

    sudo apt-get update
  5. If you want to uninstall the PlayDeb repository run this command:

    sudo apt-get remove playdeb
  6. If you get a blank page when installing you need to configure apturl in your browser.

    In Firefox you need to change the setting also in Preferences->Applications
    Link the apt protocol to /usr/bin/apturl there.
