Linux icon Install OpenRCT2 on Fedora - Quickstart Guide

Install dependencies

You will need the dependencies to build the game - there is no package for the game as of yet.

sudo dnf install gcc gcc-c++ json-devel \\
openssl-devel SDL2-devel libicu-devel \\
speexdsp-devel libcurl-devel \\
cmake fontconfig-devel freetype-devel \\
libpng-devel libzip-devel mesa-libGL-devel \\

Build the game

git clone --depth=1 && cd ./OpenRCT2 && mkdir build && cd build && cmake ../ && make

Set up the files

cp -r ../data/ ./data/ && make g2 && mv ./g2.dat ./data/g2.dat

Select your RCT2 game files location

When OpenRCT2 first launches, you will be prompted to select the directory where you installed RollerCoaster Tycoon 2. You can also set the RCT2 path from the command line should you wish - use the command below.

openrct2 set-rct2 /path/to/rct2-install
