Is there a way to play altitude on Ubuntu?

It should install and run fine -- just download the linux version from http://altitudegame.com -- I installed it on my local Ubuntu machine without incident.

Are you having a specific problem on installation or at run time?

I'm extremely new to ubuntu so I don't realy know how to install it. When I download the linux version, I get the file "altitude.sh". When I double click it, it get a message saying "This link needs to be opened with an application"

You probably need to make the file executable first -- just right click the file and make sure it's "executable" by you. Or on a command prompt
chmod u+x altitude.sh (to make it executable)
./altitude.sh (to run it)

Thx alot it installed and runs fine. But there's a problem running it in window mode. It doesn't have a tittlebar to drag the window. Controls and everything in fullscreen works fine.

While I know this may make lam's face explode, I for one would love to play on android. It's all java, shouldn't be that big of a translation :)

why would you use an alternative OS if you don't even know the basics

People like Steve are nice. They say **** that I don't want to say because it's unconstructive and reveals what a dick I am, but is so ****ing self evident that I mean argh.

yeah i'm like that.
I'm not being a dick though, it just doesn't make sense to me. I understand that everyone has to learn sometime, but don't make a gaming pc and put linux on it. It's like making a server out of a vista ultimate desktop with 2gig of ram.
