Sound like the download could be corrupted, try downloading again? Or you could try using 2.5 deploy to download and install it... http://25deploy.co.uk

Make sure you have glibc installed.
Code:

sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-0



Also what was the error when you tried to use 25deploy?

To install America's Army version 2.5 with 25deploy you can use the following commands:

Code:


cd ~
mkdir aaops
cd aaops
wget http://25deploy.co.uk/AA-25Deploy.tar.gz


Will download 25deploy into a folder named aaops in your Home Directory.
Code:


tar -xzf AA-25Deploy.tar.gz
 


Will extract the tarball into ~/aaops
Code:


gksu ./AA-25Deploy-Linux


This will run 25deploy.
From there follow the on screen instructions to install America's Army version 2.5.

Tell me what desktop environment you use and I'll give you instructions for making a menu shortcut.

*NOTE: If you like you can extract AA-24Deploy.tat.gz to ~/bin instead, or add ~/aaops to your path environment variable to be able to call AA-25Deploy-Linux from anywhere in the command line.

Thanks, this worked pretty well.
However, now I can't the actually game to open, I have AA 2.5 Deploy open, but I can't do anything with it.

edit: Nevermind, I hadn't install part of the package from the deploy screen, it seems to be working now. Great guide.

Sorry I haven't responded with how to create a desktop shortcut yet. I just bought a new laptop today, so I myself am about to go through the process of installing America's Army again myself. This time I'll be taking screenshots of the process to aid in understanding.

But first the most important things first!!!

/me heads off to gnome-look to look for an awesome theme to be used in the screenshots

can someone help me?
I have installed it successfully in my Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx - (i dont know if this is the right thread to post in, but thought it couldn't hurt) - and I have the launch icon in the applications menu under other applications, but when i click it nothing happens... how do I get it to run?

I downloaded to desktop and ran the following

cd Desktop
chmod +x armyops250linux.run
sudo ./armyops250linux.run

and install worked fine... how do i run it?

there is an executable file in my usr/local/bin and an armyops folder in usr/local/games...

You are likely missing some dependencies -

Code:

Go to Terminal and enter :~$ armyops

It then may say "cannot find libstc++5"
If so follow these instructions.

Go to http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/libstdc++5

Download the package for your system architecture- AMD64 for 64bit Ubuntu
i386 for standard Ubuntu

Once the download is complete - go to Download folder and double-click on the debian package.
It will install once you confirm your password

Now, to be sure that the game is not still running in background, open a Terminal again and type :~$ pkill armyops-bin

(In future you may have to enter the above command once you have played and exited AA 2.5 - armyops-bin sometimes does not exit and will cause your sound card to be locked to armyops)

After entering the above command in Terminal enter :~$ armyops

If all is well it will say "Cheat protection disabled blah blah blah" and America's Army: Special Forces will load



Good luck and see you on the battlefield Cheesy Grin
