How to Install / Upgrade Stunt Rally in Ubuntu:

PlayDeb repository is currently building the game binaries for Ubuntu 15.04, Ubuntu 14.04 and their derivatives. Check out its repository page before doing below steps.

1. Add PlayDeb repository:

Open terminal from the Dash, App Launcher, or via Ctrl+Alt+T shortcut key. When it opens, run command:

sudo sh -c 'echo "deb http://archive.getdeb.net/ubuntu trusty-getdeb games" >/etc/apt/sources.list.d/playdeb.list'

For Ubuntu 15.04, replace trusty with vivid in the code.

Then run command to get the keyring:

wget -q -O- http://archive.getdeb.net/getdeb-archive.key | sudo apt-key add -

For Linux Mint 17.x, you may enable this repository from Software Sources -> Additional repositories -> archive.getdeb.net

2. Then update system cache and install the game packages via below commands one by one:

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install stuntrally

For Linux Mint, you may use Synaptic Package Manager instead to install it.

For those who don’t want to add PlayDeb repository and know a little about how to install a .deb binary and manually fix dependency issue, download the packages for stuntrally and stuntrally-tracks.
