    '/home/kah/Desktop/hexen2-installer-1.5.6-linux.run'
    Verifying archive integrity... All good.
    Uncompressing Hexen II: Hammer of Thyrion, v1.5.6

    i have fixed that problem before above this i took the file hexen2-1.5.6-2.i586.rpm and used terminal installed alien and converted it everything works yet when installed i get the error

    Installation Summary:

    Base directory: /usr/games/hexen2
    Data directory: /usr/games/hexen2
    PAK file health: BAD. Reason(s):
    - Neither of retail, demo or oem versions found.
    Mission Pack: not found
    HexenWorld: not found

    so i have no idea how to fix this if you can help if not i thank you for trying and if so you can do this put the hexen2 files as .deb files for those new to linux or just put some .deb files for install and have people supply the .wad files. anyway i need help with this problem as it wont let me launch the game after the error good bye.

    You must install data for the Hexen II game along with uhexen2:
    uhexen2 is only the engine, but you need the game's data files,
    i.e. the pak files, in order to play the game. Please look at
    the documentation: docs/README in the packages, or use the README
    link at http://uhexen2.sourceforge.net/

    As for *.deb packages: I an not running on a Debian derivative
    distro, so I cannot provide any debs.
