It seems that you're using an outdated browser. Some things may not work as they should (or don't work at all).

mashppps: Sorry, I don't plan currently to do other repos (neither source nor other flavours like Jessie/Sid).

Best option IMHO would be to submit lgogdownloader to the "official" Debian-Repos and maintain it actively there.
I don't have currently the resources to do that, so that someone else has to do this.

Thanks, great news! https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/lgogdownloader

Great to hear, that lgogdownloader is now in the official Debian-Repos for Jessie and Sid! Well done!

I'll maintain the Debian Wheezy-Ports in my private repo as long as Wheezy is officially supported by Debian.

BTW: Debian Wheezy Repo and Downloads have been updated to 2.19. :-)

bddde5b Merged pull request #36

This adds priority handling of platforms and languages. See man page for details.
I'm running "lgogdownloader --game ai --repair --directory ~/Installers/ --platform 4 --no-deb" and its telling me that the files
gog_ai_war_fleet_command_dlc1_1.0.0.9.tar.gz
gog_ai_war_fleet_command_1.0.0.15.tar.gz
don't exist. I know they exist, because I extracted them to the place I put my non-Steam Linux games. Anyone know what's up with this?

I'm running LGOGDownloader 2.19 git cb2395b
Hi everyone, I'm new to linux and I'm having a little trouble following all of the instructions to get it for ubuntu. I'm currently using ubuntu 13.10. If someone could help me get this up and running I'd really appreciate it.

You can download the source from here: https://github.com/Sude-/lgogdownloader/archive/v2.19.tar.gz

Unpack it somewhere, and just run "make" from that location. Please post back if it fails with some error (you might need a few development libraries and C++ compiler installed).

It seems to work although the commend line says it's installing "windows installer english" for the game. Does that mean I need to play the game while running wine?

Do you mean the downloader downloads Windows version? You need to specify the system of the installer for it as a parameter. Run it with --help for details.

For Linux it's --platform 4

It downloaded the windows version of the installer first, and then the linux downloads started. It was 14 unnecessary hours, but it worked out in the end. Thanks for the help.

That sounds about right. Because so many GOG games don't have native Linux versions, the default behaviour is to download "Windows and/or Linux".

--platform 4 specifies Linux-only and you can use --no-deb or --no-targz to narrow it further.

If you want to adjust the default behaviour, read the documentation for --save-config.

Now i can't get the setup launcher to work. the launcher for the game comes up, I click launch game, and then it doesn't do anything? Maybe I had an issue somewhere? I really don't know what's wrong now.

Please make a new thread about it in the corresponding game forum section to avoid off-topic here.
