I have taken maintainership of this package, and updated it in a number of ways. First, I changed to the maintained fork on github. I have added dependencies on sdl2_mixer and soundfont-fluid.

Timidity is no longer required, as sdl2_mixer has a version of timidty build into it, I believe. At least, it works for me without timidity or fluidsynth.

Let me know if you have any issues!

TL;DR You at least have to install "fluidsynth" to get music working, maybe.

Hey, gang. I wanted to share what I had to do to get the in-game music working with 1oom.

Tell them music didn’t work at first. I went to the Timidity ArchWiki page and got timidity running as a systemd user service. I installed soundfont-fluid. Then I got the vkeybd working. Then I did (cd /etc; ln -s timidity timidity++) because 1oom seemd to be looking for it. That might not matter, though, because only after I installed fluidsynth (and ran 1oom_classic_sdl2 with -sdlmixersf /usr/share/soundfonts/FluidR3_GM.sf2 ). Now music works great.

Although sound did work properly out of the box, music did not. I first went to the Timidity page on ArchWiki and followed the instructions to get timidity working. I installed "soundfont-fluid" to get a /usr/share/soundfonts/FluidR3_GM.sf2 . I got vkeybd (a pure-software MIDI keyboard) playing music, per the wiki page.

1oom_classic_sdl2 output said something about not being able to find /etc/timidity++ . Arch installs the timidity config files under /etc/timidity. I couldn't easily find where to update the path in the 1oom source, so I did "cd /etc; sudo ln -s timidity timidity++".

Those steps above (other than installing the "soundfont-fluid" package) may not matter, though. Music still did not work. I then installed the "fluidsynth" package. Then, I ran "1oom_classic_sdl2 -sdlmixersf /usr/share/soundfonts/FluidR3_GM.sf2". THEN, and from that point forward, the in-game music works perfectly. (Actually, the music seems to be behind a slight delay of maybe half a second. Close enough, though. I'm happy to be playing MOO on Linux without the use of an emultor or VM.)

Up-to-date and working PKGBUILD:

# Maintainer: Benjamin Hodgetts <>

pkgdesc="1oom is a Master of Orion (1993) game engine recreation."
depends=(sdl2 libsamplerate)

pkgver() {
    cd "${srcdir}/1oom"
    echo "r$(git rev-list --count HEAD).$(git rev-parse --short HEAD)"

build() {
    cd 1oom
    autoreconf -fi
    ./configure --prefix=/usr --disable-hwsdl1

package() {
    cd 1oom
    make PREFIX="/usr" DESTDIR="${pkgdir}" install
