Currently using Ubuntu 16.04.

Add OpenMW ppa and install.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:openmw/openmw
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install openmw

Download steamcmd.

cd /opt

sudo mkdir /opt/morrowind
sudo chown -R <username>:<username> /opt/morrowind

sudo mkdir steamcmd
sudo chown -R <username>:<username> /opt/steamcmd

cd steamcmd

tar xvf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz

Make steam download folder, start steamcmd and download Morrowind (must own on Steam.)


Steam> login <username>

Steam> force_install_dir /opt/morrowind

# allow ourselve to download windows-only games
