I have an other idea.

on the Game page, we could have 2-4 tabs.

1 - the actual game page, as it is now.

2 - a "forum" or "support" or "something" tab, on which one could access all the forum threads related to the game

3 - a "install&run instructions" tab, on which a simple guide to installing and some dependency info (divided by distro)
This 3rd tab should be made by us users, maybe with a sandbox model (all members could submit install guides, that would just have to be reviewed by a mod)

4 - this tab I am less sure about. "common install errors & solutions" as suggested before, posting error outputs and known solutions to it, would give the site a good google visibility increase

Here's the new link:

I've managed to successfully run the game with it. Don't forget to check that you have _Sun_ Java installed and it is selected as default JRE.

My idea would be, to write a little text in front of the comment section to describe what the comments are for, e.g. posting questions and solutions...

In the beginning i thought that there are numerous places to ask for help about installing/running a game but at it is now, with already some comments addressing these problems, actually looks like the right place.

One design problem actually needs to be addressed first and it would be helpful if you could comment on that too. The comment section doesn't look like the right place for discussions, a forum thread would be much better cause the readability is greater and every question can have its own thread. Right?

(edit) it runs after installing the 3 synaptic results for "jogl"
(edit2) up to the login screen at least, then some generic java permission error is displayed. (the relevant part does not fit into the screen)

Removed the second link; Problem with the first link may be caused by the server, which looks down at the moment I'm writing this comment. Let's see if it will work when the server goes up.
