dxx-rebirth Debian/Ubuntu packages

The goal of these dxx-rebirth packages is to provide a playable version of the game for Debian 8+ (Jessie) and recent Ubuntu, and Debian-based distros such as Linspire, Xandros, Ubuntu, and Mepis.  There are official Debian packages of dxx-rebirth (d1x-rebirth and d2x-rebirth), but they don't provide the demo levels. and so are not "playable" out-of-the-box.

To install the game, it is best to add  my repository to your repository list.  There are 2 ways to do this.

  1. Open the file /etc/apt/sources.list (as root) and add the following line:
     deb http://files.crnatural.net/  lloyd  main contrib
  2. Add the repository using using your favorite package manage, such as Synaptic.  In Synaptic click "Repositories" in the "Settings" Menu.  Click "New," and fill in the respository line as given in #1 above.

In order to avoid the warning about use of an unauthenticated repository, you may want to add my repository's public key to your system's repository keyring.  To do that, execute the following line, as root or using "sudo":

wget -O - http://files.crnatural.net/lloyd_key.asc | apt-key add -

After adding the new repository, you will need to "Refresh" your package manager (use the "Reload" button in Synaptic).  Then do a search for packages with "d2x-rebirth" in the name, and the packages in my repository should appear.  You should see d1x-rebirth-with-demo and d2x-rebirth-with-demo.  

If you don't want to add my repository to your list of Debian or Ubuntu repositories, you can download the files individually.  The URL is:

http://files.crnatural.net/pool/contrib/d

Remember to go to the site http://www.dxx-rebirth.com  for information about the game.  There is also a forum.
