EDuke32 can be installed from a repository for Debian and Ubuntu Linux.
Note, these are development builds. After an update, it is possible that some formats have changed, as that of saved games. In this case it is likely that the old files have become unusable.
A simple trick to avoid getting stuck, is to finish an episode before each update. Otherwise you can look -v and -l parameters.
Add the following lines in an additional sources.list file such as /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eduke32.list :
deb http://apt.duke4.net codename main deb-src http://apt.duke4.net codename main
Replace codename by one that match with your version. Before doing this, you can verify what versions are supported.
To do this quickly you can also copy/paste both lines at one time in a terminal:
echo -e "deb http://apt.duke4.net $(lsb_release -cs) main\n\ deb-src http://apt.duke4.net $(lsb_release -cs) main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/eduke32.list
Note to Ubuntu users: You must activate the universe repository before installing EDuke32.
Note to Debian users: We do not support symbolic names (eg, you can not replace sid by unstable in the APT URL), to avoid conflicts when a new stable release comes out.
You can import the GPG public key to authenticate downloaded packages:
wget -q http://apt.duke4.net/key/eduke32.gpg -O- | sudo apt-key add -
If you prefer to use su instead of sudo:
su && wget -q http://apt.duke4.net/key/eduke32.gpg -O- | apt-key add -
Packages are available for x86 and x86-64 architectures:
- eduke32 : Open source enhanced port of the game Duke Nukem 3D.
- mapster32 : OpenGL maps editor for EDuke32.
- duke3d-shareware : Duke Nukem 3D shareware files v1.3d.

Run your packages manager and search "eduke32" or in command-line interface, type:
