[Solved]New install on Manjaro Linux.

Recommended Posts



Got a new PC yesterday with a decent gpu (i5-4690+gtx960) so I'm keen to install & play TDM.


I've tried the Arch AUR version but get the following output,


darkmod 2.02-1 (Fri Oct 25 03:01:26 SAST 2013)
( Unsupported package: Potentially dangerous ! )
==> darkmod dependencies:

- lib32-libxxf86vm (already installed)
- unzip (already installed)
- xterm (already installed)

Seems out of date.


Any suggestions on how to install this on Manjaro (just like Arch) 64-bit?

No idea. I'll have a closer look tomorrow but his is the contents of the pkgbuild,

For now I came across http://www.thedarkmod.com/download-the-mod/and following Install TDM on LInux section.


Thanks for the welcome but I've been here before, now with much better gpu I'm ready to play this game. Spoke to one of the team members before that's from South Africa and he was very helpful.
