Okay, the installation seemed to go off without a hitch, but how do I actually start the game? No icon, no documentation?
I'm using Ubuntu 7.10 64bit.
The binary is installed to $PREFIX/bin, which, unless you did something crazy, should be on your $PATH. In other words, simply type "quake2world" at a terminal. The game will start and give you a full-screen console. Type "map fractures" or "connect jdolan.dyndns.org" to check it out.
Hope this helps,
