    You have two options:

    1) You can compile the game - this ensures you get the latest version

    If you are running ubuntu you will need to install the building tools first:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    Look at the ReadMe file that comes bundled with the source code. It will usually tell you about any extra libraries you need to install like SDL development files.

    Generally speaking, you compile source by:

    1) ./configure
    2) make
    3) sudo make install

    or

    2) You can visit the Loki installers webpage and download an easy to install binary package. Most of these versions are out of date though - the Nexuiz version is so old that it won't even let you join any servers!

    Download the file and open a terminal. Then:

    Code:
    chmod +x <filename.bin>
    Then:

    Code:
    sudo ./<filename.bin>

    You don't need to build it from source, it's already available as a binary. Just download the tar.gz file, extract it someplace (e.g. /usr/local/games or /home/yourname/games) and run the sauerbraten_unix shell script. That's pretty much it. Happy gaming!

    That means that you don't have your 3D drivers installed. No 3D drivers, no 3D games either. :(

    What kind of video card do you have? Also, what distro are you running?
