Not all Distributions are always at the state of the current release. If you want to be sure to have the current version, please get the sources and compile it yourself.

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 [https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/master/INSTALL.md compile them yourself] 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].

If you want a different version, you need to explicitly request which branch you want, e.g. [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth-1.12 1.12] (stretch), or [http://packages.debian.org/wesnoth-1.14 1.14] (buster, bullseye, and sid)

===International language support===
+
===Command-line install===
Debian does not come with all locales. If you can't choose your language, you need to add locale for your lang.
+
To install Wesnoth, run the following to pull in everything:
see man locale.gen for more info.
+
aptitude install wesnoth wesnoth-music
quick guide for lenny: uncomment locales you want in /etc/locale.gen, then as root run "locale-gen".
 
  
 
===Compiling===
 
===Compiling===
  
If you want to play with the repository version directly you may have to compile it yourself. See [http://www.wesnoth.org/wiki/CompilingWesnoth Compiling Wesnoth].
+
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 [https://github.com/wesnoth/wesnoth/blob/master/INSTALL.md 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:
 +
 
 +
# Stable version
 +
aptitude build-dep wesnoth
 +
# Development version
 +
aptitude build-dep wesnoth-1.14
 +
 
 +
'''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-1.14
  
'''To install the dependencies:'''
+
Bear in mind that this will '''not''' remove downloaded data or saved games stored in your [[EditingWesnoth#The_user_data_directory|home directory]].
  
You can use a neat trick: Use the Build-Dependencies of the Debian package.
+
<!-- == Steam client for Linux and SteamOS==
  
Just do an <code>aptitude build-dep wesnoth</code>. That will pull in most you need.
+
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.
  
'''To compile it:'''<br/>
+
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.
If you have already installed an older version of wesnoth, uninstall it by:
 
  
<code>aptitude purge wesnoth</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
  
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. :)
+
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.
 +
 
 +
'''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
 +
 
 +
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. -->

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 yourself 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

  • Official packages including the development releases. If you want a different version, you need to explicitly request which branch you want, e.g. 1.12 (stretch), or 1.14 (buster, bullseye, and sid)
  • backports.debian.org offers the latest stable wesnoth releases, albeit only backported to stretch at this time. For more info on Debian backports, click here.

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-1.14

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-1.14

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


Ubuntu

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:

sudo apt-get install wesnoth

Available Versions

Different releases of Ubuntu provide different versions of Wesnoth in their repositories. Often, this version will be older than the most current Wesnoth.
