Flatpak - New cross-distro Linux install package for the desktop client
bluap posted a topic in General ChatI recently posted about a new cross-disto Linux package to install the game client and data based on Snap Packages. I've now created and published a Flatpak version. See https://flatpak.org/ for details about this package format. The new EL package has been accepted into the main flatpak store Flathub, the EL package page can be found here https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.pjbroad.EternallandsClient. The package includes the game data, sound and music files and is currently built to the 1.9.5p2 release. Once installed you will have a new desktop icon to start the client. If you right-click the icon you can select the test or the pk server rather than the default, main. User configuration files are stored in the standard place and are not effect if you uninstall the package. The launcher creates a new config directory if one does not exist. For existing installs, the launcher will modify the #data_dir setting to use the package data and the browser setting to use xdg-open; which just opens your default browser. The EL package page includes links to instructions to setup Flatpak and the Flathub app store. It also includes the command line needed to install the package if you do not want to install from the store UI. If you have Flatpak and Flathub already integrated into your distro, then you can just search for Eternal Lands. The package works just fine given my testing but let me know what you think. Maintaining both Snap and Flatpak formats should be pretty simple so I intent to keep both.
