How can I extract and start the Linux client?
After downloading the appropriate tarball for your system, you need to decompress the tarball in a desired target folder. To do so, use the following command:tar xfz tibia.x64.tar.gz
A new folder named "tibia-*" will be created which contains the client and its supporting files.
To start Tibia you have to switch to the newly created Tibia folder. To do so, please start the shell script "start-tibia.sh". Please understand that the client will not be able to find all necessary files to run the game if you try to start the client from any other location. If you want to create a desktop launch icon, you should also adjust the launcher to incorporate the working path for the application.
On debian-based distributions, please make sure that the required libpcre16.so.0 is available on your system. You might also be able to solve the problem by symlinking the library to an existing version of libpcre16.so* on your system.
