Worms WMD on Fedora 30 Linux

  • Worms W.M.D. or Weapons of Mass Destruction runs fine on Linux, even Fedora 30, but needs a little tweaking. This is for the game from Steam.

      cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/WormsWMD/lib
      ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libidn.so.11 .
      ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libcurl-gnutls.so.4 .
      ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgcrypt.so.11 .
      ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/librtmp.so.0 .
      ln -s ~/.steam/steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/amd64/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/*dbus* ~/.steam/steam/steamapps/common/WormsWMD/lib

    This should set things up to work. Now to launch the game...

    cd ~/.local/share/Steam/steamapps/common/WormsWMD/

    Now it runs like a charm.

  • It is also a free trial weekend for the game on Steam, for anyone wanting to fire it up and see what they think.
