How To Install FreeCiv 2.4.4 On OpenSUSE 13.2, OpenSUSE 13.1 And OpenSUSE 12.3 Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, FreeCiv is an open-source version of the Civilization game. The latest version available is FreeCiv 2.4.4, which has been released recently.

From the changelog:

“In Freeciv you compete against several opponents to found cities, use them to support a military and economy, and finally to complete an empire that survives all encounters with its neighbors to emerge victorious. Each opponent may be either another human or be controlled by the computer. All players begin at the dawn of history with a handful of units – typically with an explorer and a couple of settlers in 4000 BC — and race to expand outward from those humble beginnings.”

“2.4.4 is a bug-fix release. Notable bugs fixed include serious issues in East Asian locales on Windows, occasional inability to switch governments in the Gtk client, research in games with teams, and premature nuclear explosion,”
