How to install Spiral Knights on Ubuntu 19.04

Today we are looking at how to install Spiral Knights on Ubuntu 19.04, this should work as well on all supported versions of Ubuntu.  You will need to have a Spiral Knights account which you can get from the official site, link below.

You can use the videos as a visual guide and all the commands/steps which I used in the videos is here below.

In the first step, we download the installation package, then we install Java, after that, we  make the installation package executable and open a terminal inside the directory where the package is located, then we install Spiral Knights and then we set permissions to be able to run the game, lastly we install a menu editor for Ubuntu and add Spiral Knights to the menu.

For some reason, the desktop icon does not want to work, so I just remove it and add the game to the app menu.  Enjoy!

Ps.  Because of my slow internet speeds I didn't wait for the game to update, but it does work, please let me know if you run into any errors.

1) Download Installation Package

2) Install Java
sudo apt install default-jre

3) Make installation package executable and open terminal in the directory where it is located, as seen in the video.

4) Install Game
sudo ./spiral-install.bin



5) Set permissions
sudo chmod -R 777 spiral

6) Add to the system menu
sudo apt install alacarte
