Description

Ubuntu 64bit (and other debian distros regardless of 32 or 54bit)
doomsday_2.0.0.1843+trusty_amd64.deb
Does not seem to pick up iwads that are in the folder "/usr/share/games/doom" which is the default folder that debian based distros install freedoom and the doom shareware wads into (also the doom wad deb installer (locates your iwads and places them in "/usr/share/games/doom")

dave@theBeast:/usr/share/games/doom$ ls
doom1.wad freedoom1.wad freedoom2.wad freedoomu.wad freedoom.wad prboom-plus.wad

#4 Updated by eunbolt over 3 years ago

It picks up the wads now if they are in there.
But it doesn't seem to pick up the freedoom wads

#5 Updated by skyjake over 3 years ago

Only the FreeDM multiplayer WAD is currently recognized since (AFAIK) it is the only one that's fully vanilla compatible.
