    7dtd Mod installer and launcher for Linux is ready for alpha testing

    Anyone interested in helping test or just want to hang out and chat join us on Discord

    The latest version can be downloaded here:
    Current version is v0.0.39a released 4-24-18

    Changelog:

    * Tue Apr 24 2018 Gandor build v0.0.39a
    - Checks if Steam is running before launching a mod
    - Closes 7dtd hung processes before launching a mod

    Manjaro, Arch Linux.... Package
    Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mint .... Package

    Q. What does the Mod Installer and launcher for Linux (mi4l) do?
    A. It installs and launches 7dtd mods.
    At some point I would like mi4l to be able to install other older
    games like Doom, Doom3, Hexen2 but that's just a dream at this point.

    Q. Can I use mi4l to run a dedicated server?
    A. No, at least not yet, but I plan to add this in the feature.

    Q. Where can I go for help?
    A. You can post your questions here or in Discord

    Q. Are Arch and Ubuntu based distros the only distros you support?
    A. Yes and no. Currently I only know the dependencies for these distros
    If you need a package for other distros such as Suse, Fedora, PcLinuxOs and so on.........
    I'll need to know the corresponding dependencies to build the package

    The dependencies for Arch Linux bases distros are:
    ttf-ms-fonts
    steamcmd
    wget
    git
    unzip
    gambas3-runtime
    gambas3-gb-args
    gambas3-gb-dbus
    gambas3-gb-desktop
    gambas3-gb-desktop-x11
    gambas3-gb-form
    gambas3-gb-form-stock
    gambas3-gb-form-terminal
    gambas3-gb-net
    gambas3-gb-net-curl
    gambas3-gb-qt5
    gambas3-gb-qt5-webkit
    gambas3-gb-xml

    The dependencies for Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Mint are:
    ttf-mscorefonts-installer
    steamcmd
    wget
    git
    unzip
    gambas3-runtime
    gambas3-gb-args
    gambas3-gb-dbus
    gambas3-gb-desktop
    gambas3-gb-desktop-x11
    gambas3-gb-form
    gambas3-gb-form-stock
    gambas3-gb-form-terminal
    gambas3-gb-net
    gambas3-gb-net-curl
    gambas3-gb-qt5
    gambas3-gb-qt5-webkit
    gambas3-gb-xml

    Thanks to DarkDude from discord for this info
    Ubuntu based distros may need to run the fallowing to get the gambas3 dependencies

    I think he's concerned about whatever passes for viruses in a linux environment.

    I'd recommend a quick tutorial video, that way hesitant people can see it's an actual program and not a shell that gives away root access. =)

    This is essentially what I was getting at. Virus’s are very unlikely in Linux. I don’t want to come across unappreciative because I like the idea and have been hoping someone with skills in Linux would make the attempt. I’m no coder in Linux other than basic commands so if it were malicious code I would be none the wiser.

    Don’t let my concern dissuade you from working on this.

    Looking forward to it. I assume you understand my concern regarding random files on the internet. I would be happy to test in the future when you get it more available and really am interested since more and more I’m moving as much as I can to Linux. I still have a few Windoz only items but that list is getting smaller every day. Sorry if I come across in negative fashion as that was not my intent.
