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.
- For the official pkg from [extra]:
pacman -S wesnoth
- dibblethewrecker also provides regular SVN snapshots. Please 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.
apt-get install wesnothor
aptitude install wesnoth
- Official packages
- Wesnoth 1.0 backport for Sarge
===> about this backport, maybe an issue with an unresolvable dependancy, the "ttf-dejavu" package which is required but does not belong to sarge main archive. If someone could confirm ? [ 4 october 2005 ]
====> 8 October: adding
deb http://ftp.tr.debian.org/debian/ unstable main deb-src http://ftp.tr.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
Package: wesnoth Pin: version 1.0-1sarge* Pin-Priority: 1001 Package: wesnoth-data Pin: version 1.0-1sarge* Pin-Priority: 1001 Package: * Pin: release a=stable Pin-Priority: 700 Package: * Pin: release a=testing Pin-Priority: 650 Package: * Pin: release a=unstable Pin-Priority: 600
to /etc/apt/preferences and then installing ttf-dejavu with
apt-get install -t unstable ttf-dejavu
worked for me ;-)
====> If you want to install the latest Development version you may have to compile it yourself. See Compiling Wesnoth.
To install the dependencies :
aptitude install libsdl1.2-dev libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev libfreetype6-dev
Remains one package : libintl which isn't in the Debian packages database, but I think you can install it by
aptitude install gettext
If someone may confirm that ...
To compile it : If you have already installed and older version of wesnoth, uninstall it by :
aptitude purge wesnoth
Note that will remove all your wesnoth configuration. Then, download the source by wget, or your internet navigator. Save it in the /usr/src directory. Now, it's very easy :
tar -xvzf wesnoth-1.1.1.tar.gz
You may have more information about this part in the Compiling Wesnoth page.
Battle for Wesnoth 1.0.1-1 is included in Ubuntu Dapper's universe collection. This is the latest stable release. As this is not the latest version, Breezy users will need to do one of the following to obtain the latest version:
- Upgrade to the Dapper Drake, or
- Use the Breezy-Backports repository,
- Use an unofficial repository, or
- Build from the source per Debian above, or
- Use the generic binary for GNU/Linux found on the Download page.
Of these options, the final one is most likely the safest at this time.
See the Ubuntu Starter Guide's section on adding the universe repositories.
Do not attempt to install the debian package and associated dependencies using dpkg as you will break your environment!
Battle for Wesnoth is included in Fedora Extras, which is enabled in Fedora Core 4 by default.
yum install wesnoth wesnoth-tools wesnoth-server

- The most easy way to testdrive BfW is provided via 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 klik FAQ for details. A BfW-specific klik website has links to help with the package. Once the klik client is installed, look at this:
- Binary: ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrakelinux/devel/cooker/i586/media/contrib/
- Source: ftp://ftp.free.fr/pub/Distributions_Linux/Mandrakelinux/devel/cooker/contrib/SRPMS/
