Binary DEB packages for Debian stable, as well as current (and LTS) Ubuntu are available here on i386 and amd64; download the binary for your distribution and install with:

sudo dpkg -i <package name>

Users of other versions, distributions, or architectures can build DEBs from source using the instructions here.

Everything Else[edit]

Here is the source code with the effects add-on package included. Compiling the game on Linux and Linux-like systems should be identical to compiling the original UQM code: Install the required dependencies and run ./build.sh uqm
