Ubuntu – How to run a .zip file


Earlier this week, I decided to run my computer on Ubuntu, and I’ve been loving it! However, earlier tonight, I downloaded the game Hot Date to test out running games on my computer only to realize that I have no idea how to run it, or play it, or whatever the correct terminology is. I got the linux version, which came as a .zip file, and I’m running ubuntu 16.04, if that information helps.

    1. Unzip the ZIP file with your favourite archive manager, e. g. File Roller, which is associated with ZIP files by default in Ubuntu.

    2. From the extracted files run HotDateLinux/HotDateLinux2.x86.

    If you have a 64-bit installation of Ubuntu you will probably need to install the 32-bit variant of some shared libraries to run the game:

    sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libgcc1:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxau6:i386 libxcb1:i386 libxcursor1:i386 libxdmcp6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxfixes3:i386 libxrandr2:i386 libxrender1:i386
