From the Debian Wiki:

Install from official repos:

libsm6:i386 osspd-pulseaudio:i386 libpulsedsp:i386

Install from loose DEB files:

After installing those, modify the file /var/lib/dpkg/status to add -Arch: foreign as follow :

Package: libgtk1.2-common
Status: install ok installed
Multi-Arch: foreign
Priority: optional
Section: misc
Installed-Size: 944

and then install:

Run the installer using 32-bit enviroment:

$ sudo linux32 sh unreal.tournament_436-multilanguage.goty.run 

Create a psdsp32 script based on /usr/bin/padsp (I used /usr/local/bin/padsp32) and change lines as follows:

if [ x"$LD_PRELOAD" = x ] ; then
LD_PRELOAD="$LD_PRELOAD /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/pulseaudio/libpulsedsp.so"

Manual run would be:

cd /usr/local/games/ut/System/
padsp32 ./ut-bin 

However, modifying ut.desktop is better. Archived the updated one.

Hosting a Server

While it is still up, the Unreal Admin Wiki seems to be a good resource. GUI choices for hosting a server don't work. To host a basic server on a given map:

$ ucc server DM-Zeto.unr

Many settings are remembered from the GUI (server name, # of bots), and stored in ~/.loki/ut/System/UnrealTournament.ini. Settings can also be set on command-line with ?:

$ ucc server CTF-Command?Game=Botpack.CTFGame?Param2=Value2

List of available game modes:

For now, edit the map lists by editing ini file. Set game settings for the game modes above in the corresponding sections of this file (e.g. [Botpack.DeathMatchPlus]). Note: the manually selected map will replace index 0. The top [URL] section can be changed to set a new default map by editing Map and omitting that from the command-line too.
