Not all distributions carry the latest stable or development releases. If you want to make sure you are running the newest official version of Wesnoth from either branch, either get the sources from the [[Download]] page and [[CompilingWesnoth|compile them youself]] or use the nightly flatpak below.
 +
 
 +
== Flatpak ==
 +
A nightly flatpak of Wesnoth's development branch is available.  Instructions for getting it can be found [https://forums.wesnoth.org/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=47872 here].
 +
 
 +
A flatpak of the current stable release(1.14) is also available [https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.wesnoth.Wesnoth here].
  
 
== Arch Linux ==
 
== Arch Linux ==
* For the official pkg from [extra]: <code>pacman -S wesnoth</code>  
+
* The latest stable version can be installed from the [community] repository: <code>pacman -S wesnoth</code>  
* dibblethewrecker also provides regular SVN snapshotsPlease see [ http://dtw.jiwe.org/content.php?article.9 here] for details of how to access the repo. As development of wesnoth continues this repo is likely to follow the unstable branch.
+
* There's a wesnoth-devel package for development releases in [https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/wesnoth-devel/ the AUR].
 +
 
 +
== Debian ==
 +
* [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth Official packages] including the development releases. If you want a different version, you need to explicitly request which branch you want, e.g. [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth-1.10 1.10] (jessie), [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth-1.12 1.12] (jstretch), or [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth-1.14 1.14] (buster and sid)
 +
* [http://backports-master.debian.org/ backports.debian.org] offers the latest stable wesnoth releases for Debian stable, see http://wiki.debian.org/Backports for more information.
 +
 
 +
===Command-line install===
 +
To install Wesnoth, run the following to pull in everything:
 +
  aptitude install wesnoth wesnoth-music
 +
 
 +
===Compiling===
 +
 
 +
If you want to run a newer release than the ones provided in the Debian repositories, or an unreleased version from the [[WesnothRepository|Git repository]], you will have to build it from source. See [[CompilingWesnoth|Compiling Wesnoth]] for more details.
 +
 
 +
To install Wesnoth's dependencies if you have Debian's source repositories enabled in your config, you can just use apt's <code>build-dep</code> command with the package that best matches the version you are trying to build:
  
== Ark Linux ==
+
# Stable version
* Ark Linux includes an official wesnoth package, currently at version 1.7.0. Simply use the package installation tool to install the wesnoth package, or run <code>apt-get update; apt-get install wesnoth</code> (or <code>apt-get -t dockyard-devel install wesnoth</code> if you wish to run the current development version of wesnoth with all other packages from the stable tree)
+
aptitude build-dep wesnoth
* Users of other similar distributions can download the packages at [http://arklinux.osuosl.org/dockyard-devel the Ark Linux file server]. They are likely to run on any rpm based distribution that uses a recent version of gcc (>= 4.0) and glibc (>= 2.4).
+
# Development version
 +
aptitude build-dep wesnoth-1.13
  
== Debian ==
+
'''Note:''' If you have already installed an older version of Wesnoth, you should uninstall it first by running:
* <code>aptitude install wesnoth</code><br/>(use <code>wesnoth-all</code> if you want to pull in all the campaigns and the editor, too)
 
* [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth Official packages] including the development releases in the experimental branch 
 
* [http://backports.org/ backports.org] offers the stable wesnoth releases for Debian stable, see http://wiki.debian.org/Backports for more informations.
 
  
====International langugage support====
+
# Stable version
Debian does not come with all locales. If you can't choose your language, you need to add locale for your lang.
+
aptitude purge wesnoth
see man locale.gen for more info.
+
# Development version
quick guide for lenny: uncomment locales you want in /etc/locale.gen, then as root run "locale-gen".
+
aptitude purge wesnoth-1.13
  
====Compiling====
+
Bear in mind that this will '''not''' remove downloaded data or saved games stored in your [[EditingWesnoth#The_user_data_directory|home directory]].
  
If you want to play with the SVN version directly you may have to compile it yourself. See [http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/CompilingWesnoth Compiling Wesnoth].
+
== Steam client for Linux and SteamOS==
  
'''To install the dependencies:'''
+
Previously, installing Battle for Wesnoth on SteamOS was similar to doing so on Debian (as SteamOS is largely based on Debian) albeit with a few extra steps to enable the Debian repositories in SteamOS.
  
You can use a neat trick: Use the Build-Dependencies of the Debian package.
+
Now, Wesnoth is now available on SteamOS and the Steam client for Linux. [https://store.steampowered.com/app/599390/Battle_for_Wesnoth/ Click here] to go to the store page in your browser.
  
Just do an <code>aptitude build-dep wesnoth</code>. That will pull in most you need. As of 1.4 stable wesnoth, the dependencies also include all of the "Boost" libraries, if you are using Debian stable/etch sources.list you need to also <code>aptitude install libboost-iostreams-dev libboost-test-dev</code>.
+
<!--[http://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamuniverse/discussions/1/648814396114274132/ Click here] for directions. After enabling them, one had to run the following as root to install wesnoth to use in Desktop mode:
 +
aptitude install wesnoth wesnoth-music
  
'''To compile it:'''<br/>
+
Also, in order to add a shortcut to launch wesnoth in Big Picture mode, one had to open the Steam client in Desktop mode and [https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=2219-YDJV-5557 follow these instructions] before closing the client and switching back to using Big Picture mode, where it was found under Games.
If you have already installed an older version of wesnoth, uninstall it by:
 
  
<code>aptitude purge wesnoth</code>
+
'''Note:''' You will need to enable access to the desktop in SteamOS to add the Debian repositories to SteamOS. [https://steamcommunity.com/groups/steamuniverse/discussions/1/648814395741989999/ Click here] and scroll down to the heading "How do I get to the desktop on SteamOS? All I see is Steam." for instructions
  
Note that this will not remove downloaded data or savegames which are stored in your home directory in the folder <code>.wesnoth</code>. From this point on you can simply follow the advices from the [http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/CompilingWesnoth Compiling Wesnoth] page, no need to duplicate that informations in here. :)
+
Steam has greenlit Battle for Wesnoth on its platform prior to the end of Steam Greenlight, and the developers have planned an early 2017 release onto the storefront timed with the release of of the 1.14.x series of releases. You can keep apprised of the status [https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=729138129 here] -->
 +
<!-- Note that this will (probably) become obsolete with 1.14, as Wesnoth has been Greenlit. Update if and when the release to Steam occurs, as it is likely going to be a SteamPlay title. -->

* 8.04's (hardy-backports) universe repository includes version 1.4.4.
 
  
See the [http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu:Gutsy#How_to_add_extra_repositories Ubuntu Starter Guide]'s section on adding the universe repositories.
+
The ebuild is currently maintained by [https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Project:Games the Gentoo Games Project]
Install via System->Administration->Synaptic, via Applications->Add/Remove or aptitude/apt-get.
 
  
Updated versions can be found in [http://www.getdeb.net/app.php?name=The+Battle+for+Wesnoth GetDeb.net].
+
== Mageia / Rosa Linux / OpenMandriva Lx ==
  
====Compiling====
+
To install the latest stable version (as root):
If you choose to build the source you should add the datadir flag to ''configure'' to ensure your installation puts the data in the same place as the official installation path:
 
  
  cd /usr/src
+
  urpmi wesnoth
tar -xvzf wesnoth-1.x.x.tar.gz
 
cd wesnoth-1.x.x
 
./configure --datadir=/usr/share/games ...
 
make
 
sudo make install
 
  
==== International language support ====
+
For the development version (Rosa Linux and OpenMandriva Lx only, as root):
  
If you want to use Wesnoth with a language that is not supported by your system, you have at least two options:
+
urpmi wesnoth-unstable
  
From Wesnoth version 1.6 onwards you can start Wesnoth with the flag <code>--dummy-locales</code> to enable all languages, even if they are not supported by your system.
+
You can also use the GUI package manager RPMDrake (in the Control Centre).
  
For older versions of Wesnoth you’ll have to enable the language on your own system first. Look in the file <code>/usr/share/i18n/SUPPORTED</code> for a line with an ISO language code matching what you want. Append that line to <code>/var/lib/locales/supported.d/local</code>, then run <code>sudo dpkg-reconfigure locales</code>. You should now be able to select that language from the language selector in Wesnoth.
+
To install latest Battle for Wesnoth version available you need to enable the following repository using the Control Centre:

To install simply run:
 
* <code>yum install wesnoth wesnoth-tools wesnoth-server</code>
 
  
== Gentoo ==
 
For the stable release just type:
 
* <code>emerge wesnoth</code>
 
  
For the development release you will have to fetch an overlay, eg from this site:
 
http://www.dorf.wh.uni-dortmund.de/priv/markus/wesnoth-dev.tbz
 
extract it to your local overlay-directory and then type
 
<code>emerge wesnoth-dev</code>
 
The ebuild will be updated whenever the person creating the ebuild finds the time to do so.
 
  
Or if you're too impatient to wait and willing to take the risk of things blowing up, download
 
and extract the overlay, make a copy of the highest available ebuild version, but change the version number to
 
that of Wesnoth version you want (for instance, wesnoth-dev-1.3.2.ebuild might become
 
wesnoth-dev-1.3.8.ebuild ), run
 
<code>ebuild [new ebuild file] digest</code>
 
and then try to emerge. It may or may not work, depending on exactly how extensive the changes in the Wesnoth
 
source are--going from 1.3.2 to 1.3.8 this way worked for me.
 
There's an ebuild for 1.5.8 on Gentoo Bugzilla: http://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=256513
 
  
For building from svn tree download the portage overlay from:
 
http://www.dorf.wh.uni-dortmund.de/priv/markus/wesnoth-svn.tbz
 
extract it to your local overlay-directory and then type
 
<code>emerge wesnoth-svn</code>
 
  
wesnoth-dev are the official development releases
 
while wesnoth-svn will build straight from SVN-source tree to keep you up to date with the lastest changes and all the errors ;-)
 
updating wesnoth-svn will not work ! you have to reemerge it each time you want to update !
 
  
Note: Neither wesnoth-dev nor wesnoth-svn seem to be maintained (as seen Nov 2009). The easiest way
 
should be downloading the source and following the instructions to build wesnoth in the source directory
 
with cmake and as a normal user. Inside the source directory start with ''./wesnoth'', as opposed
 
to ''wesnoth'' from your portage tree.
 
  
== KateOS ==
 
Currently Battle for Wesnoth v1.4 is available in offcial KateOS repo (testing for now)
 
[http://www.kateos.org/download/packages/testing3/]
 
  
== klik ==
 
The most easy way to testdrive BfW is provided via [http://klik.atekon.de/ klik]. klik enables clients to create distribution-independent binaries which require no "installation" (the base system remains untouched); its created "AppDir" bundles run even from USB stick or CD RW. klik support is pre-enabled on Knoppix and Kanotix Live CDs. Other distros need to install a small klik client (less than 20 kByte download, less than 20 seconds effort).  See the [http://klik.atekon.de/wiki/index.php/User%27s_FAQ klik FAQ] for details. A [http://wesnoth.klik.atekon.de/ BfW-specific klik website] has links to help with the package. Once the klik client is installed, look at this:
 
* [http://wesnoth.klik.atekon.de/ Wesnoth-1.0] ancient stable Version: to "klik" it, type ''klik://wesnoth'' into your Browser
 
* [http://wesnoth-latest.klik.atekon.de/ Wesnoth-1.1.1] ancient Development-Version: to "klik" it, type ''klik://wesnoth-latest'' into your Browser

Not all distributions carry the latest stable or development releases. If you want to make sure you are running the newest official version of Wesnoth from either branch, either get the sources from the Download page and compile them youself or use the nightly flatpak below.

Flatpak

A nightly flatpak of Wesnoth's development branch is available. Instructions for getting it can be found here.

A flatpak of the current stable release(1.14) is also available here.

Arch Linux

  • The latest stable version can be installed from the [community] repository: pacman -S wesnoth
  • There's a wesnoth-devel package for development releases in the AUR.

Debian

Command-line install

To install Wesnoth, run the following to pull in everything:

aptitude install wesnoth wesnoth-music

Compiling

If you want to run a newer release than the ones provided in the Debian repositories, or an unreleased version from the Git repository, you will have to build it from source. See Compiling Wesnoth for more details.

To install Wesnoth's dependencies if you have Debian's source repositories enabled in your config, you can just use apt's build-dep command with the package that best matches the version you are trying to build:

# Stable version
aptitude build-dep wesnoth
# Development version
aptitude build-dep wesnoth-1.13

Note: If you have already installed an older version of Wesnoth, you should uninstall it first by running:

# Stable version
aptitude purge wesnoth
# Development version
aptitude purge wesnoth-1.13

Bear in mind that this will not remove downloaded data or saved games stored in your home directory.

Steam client for Linux and SteamOS

Previously, installing Battle for Wesnoth on SteamOS was similar to doing so on Debian (as SteamOS is largely based on Debian) albeit with a few extra steps to enable the Debian repositories in SteamOS.

Now, Wesnoth is now available on SteamOS and the Steam client for Linux. Click here to go to the store page in your browser.

Click here to install the latest version of the wesnoth packaged for your release. Alternatively, search for "wesnoth" in the Ubuntu Software Center or use following command:
