Q: Couldn't load gfx/palette.lmp error message in linux
A: Make sure following files/directories have lower-case names: quake/id1, quake/id1/pak0.pak, quake/id1/pak1.pak

Are those pak files+extensions completely lowercase?

$ ezquake
Error: Couldn't load gfx/palette.lmp

I already have my copied files from Quake III Arena:


Already tryed to rename those files to "*.pak", and still same error.

What I doing wrong?

@Retro_Gamer: Thanks for the heads up, I updated the makedepends array.

Vim needs to be added to the dependencies list due to ezquake needs xxd to compile or it fails early on in the build process with:

"/bin/sh: xxd: command not found"

Updated to ezquake 3.0.

- The PKGBUILD now compiles from source
- i686 support has been removed. All the ezquake docs reference x86_64 only. If 32 bit works for you, let me know and I will update the PKGBUILD.

for me launching the game only loaded some of the settings in the home folder config.
adding "+cfg_load" after "+cfg_use_home 1" in /usr/bin/ezquake fixed it for me

it seems that from a fresh install of 2.2, initial run fails when run as an unprivileged user due to, from what i'm able to tell, being unable to write to /opt/quake/ezquake/sb (it seems it segfaults if it can't update the cache/server listing). this occurs even with +cfg_use_home 1

is anyone else able to recreate?

Ezquake 2.2 is available (works) and 2.1 crashes with ezquake-gl.glx: xcb_io.c:179: dequeue_pending_request: Assertion `!xcb_xlib_unknown_req_in_deq' failed.

Please update Package.

Updated to the latest version. The ezquake-{skins,textures} packages are being removed, please use quake-qrp-textures if you need high resolution textures:
