okay I suggest you either use gnome or lxde or kde ;-), so:

  1. press ALT and F2 and window will pop up type "konsole" and enter of if that does not work type "xterm" enter one of those should open a terminal

  2. now that the terminal is open, you are in your homedirectory ( /home/yourname or similiar)

so relatively to that dir change to that directory where widelands lies in, so for example, if widelands is in /home/felio/Programs/widelands than simply type "cd Programs/widelands" and hit enter

another example: if the widelands dir is for example in /opt than type: "cd ../../opt/widelands" and hit enter

  1. okay now you are in widelands dir now you should simply type ./widelands and hit enter - either the game starts or an errormessage shows up

well if widelands throws that error, you actually haven't ever used build13 - a needed file is missing and widelands can't run without it.

I would suggest that you enter our IRC chat there are a lot of ubuntuusers - they can surely help you to fix this problem and get build13 running face-smile.png
