1. Requirements


1.1. Minimum

  • CPU: 800 Mhz (one core)
  • RAM: 768 Mb
  • GPU memory & clock speed: 256 Mb & 247 Mhz
  • Graphic library: OpenGL ES 2.0 (Mesa EGL 3D)
  • Display resolution: 800x600

1.2. Recommended
  • 64-bit GNU/Linux based operative system
  • CPU: 1.8 Ghz + (dual core)
  • RAM: 2 Gb +
  • GPU memory & clock speed: 1 Gb + & 600 Mhz +
  • Graphic library: OpenGL ES 3.0 + (Mesa EGL 3D)
  • Display resolution: 1280x720



2. Upgrading & executing (system - libraries - app)

  • General Ubuntu 10.X + (currrent version = 16.04 LTS)
    1. Open Terminal
    2. Write this and press enter
      Code:
      sudo apt-get update
    3. Type your password (root access) and press enter
    4. When it finishes updating the apt, write this
      Code:
      sudo apt-get upgrade
    5. Accept upgrading your system [ Y / N ]
    6. Reboot if needed
    7. Download latest game version (click on the cute penguin)
    8. Right click on the downloaded .zip and extract it
    9. Double left click on .x86_64 archive to execute


  • Debian distributions (tried with Jessie)
    1. Open Terminal
    2. Write this and press enter
      Code:
      sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
    3. Type your password (root access) and press enter
    4. Accept upgrading your system [ Y / N ]
    5. Reboot if needed
    6. Open Terminal again
    7. Write this and press enter
      Code:
      sudo aptitude update && sudo aptitude full-upgrade
    8. Accept upgrading your system [ Y / N ]
    9. Reboot if needed
    10. Download latest game version (click on the cute penguin)
    11. Right click on the downloaded .zip and extract it
    12. Double left click on .x86_64 archive to execute



3. Fixing execution permissions


If the archive doesn't show up or you get any error, you'll need to fix it by changing some permissions:
  1. Open Terminal
  2. Install Python and GCC
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install python-dev gcc
  3. Now, make the file "executable"
    Code:
    chmod +x /route/to/the/game.x86_64
  4. If you succeded it won't appear anything (just another line waiting for new command)
  5. Try executing double left clicking or with
    Code:
    ./route/to/the/game.x86_64



4. Creating a shell script

  1. Open your favorite text editor and create a new document
  2. Use this code (you'll need to modify your file route)
    Code:
    #!/bin/sh
    echo "Executing PRO"
    cd /route/to/your/game/directory
    ./route/to/the/game.x86_64
  3. Save w/o any extension to your favorite place
  4. Close editor and try to execute it




Running PRO under GNU/Linux is not difficult but needs a little advance knowledge. Anyway, if you use any distribution, it means you are familiar to its environment! Feel free to ask whatever and, please, give me a feedback if you tried it! :Shy:

Updated and reformatted. Still no luck with RPi, it seems that will only work with emulation (Wine). I'll try to reconfigure it and keep investigating!

You can download Pokemon Revolution for ArchLinux / Manjaro and distro-based here (I can post links now :Shy: ) => https://vavar60.online.fr/share/pc/gaming/prolinux/

If you don't have GUI software installed for install single package, you can use "yaourt -U name_of_package.tar.xz" for install it with your terminal (you can replace yaourt by pacman too). (If necessary, install dependancies "gcc-libs-multilib" and "gtk2")

After that, just launch Pokemon Revolution with your appmenu of your desktop environment. :)
