@Tristero - Thanks for figuring that problem out. I updated the PKGBUILD with the patch and updated the mirrors, since ftp.idsoftware.com seems to be down.

I had the same problem: "ERROR: Couldn't load maps/ntro.inn.bsp"

I solved it with the following patch from h3xx: https://sourceforge.net/p/quake/patches/13/

This patch seems to need some altering in the line numbers to apply to r0.16.2. I added the changes manually in r0.16.2, re-generated the patch, re-ran makepkg, re-installed the game and succeeded in completing Outer Base.

Find my version of h3xx' patch for r0.16.2: https://pastebin.com/5CYjZdp9

I saved in ${startdir} and applied it by:

/usr/bin/patch -p1 < "${srcdir}"/map_command_fix.patch

The game fails to start:

ERROR: Couldn't load maps/ntro.inn.bsp

There is a patch to fix it, but I don't really know how to patch the engine

This discussion seems to imply there is a stray line in the config file: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1046844

@Slash: Yes. It's an Asus X551 with Intel HD 4000 VGA and the driver is xf86-video-intel. What else do I need?

@tombenko: The notable error there is "./opengl32: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Do you have your video card drivers setup on your system?

For me didn't created the ref_softx.so file. The exact message is:
------- Loading ref_glx.so -------
LoadLibrary("./ref_glx.so")
rfx_gl version: GL 0.01
./opengl32: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
rfx_gl::R_Init() - could not load "opengl32"
Cmd_RemoveCommand: joy_advancedupdate not added
------- Loading ref_softx.so -------
LoadLibrary("ref_softx.so") failed: No such file or directory
Refresh failed
recursive shutdown
Error: Couldn't fall back to software refresh!
It is installed on a 64bit system.

It looks like the cesium sources are out of date, so I found these which are consistent with the first ftp source.

ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/source/roguesrc320.shar.Z
ftp://ftp.idsoftware.com/idstuff/quake2/source/xatrixsrc320.shar.Z

Just replace the 'http://cesium...'/ lines with 'ftp://ftp.idsoftware...'/ in the PKGBUILD.

First time the makepkg had an error, but the second time worked (sp error?).
After following the install instructions and running it I get a window titled quake2. I havent got the game running quite yet, but close.
