Speed Dreams is is a free, 3d cross-platform, open source motorsport simulation and racing game, released under the GNU General Public License (GPL). This guide shows how to install it on an Ubuntu 9.10 desktop.

I do not issue any guarantee that this will work for you!

 

Installing Speed Dreams

Open Firefox and go to http://www.speed-dreams.org/. Click the Download link (http://www.speed-dreams.org/#download):

On the Download page, you can find .deb packages (Base and Data & Robots) for Ubuntu 9.10 32bit and 64bit. Pick the right ones for your architecture. It doesn't matter if you install Base first and then Data & Robots or vice versa. In this example, I install Data & Robots first. Click the package link...

... and then, in the Firefox download dialoge, select Open with GDebi Package Installer (default):

After the download has finished, the Package Installer opens. Click the Install Package button:

Type in your password:

Afterwards, the Data & Robots package is being installed:

Click Close to leave the Package Installer afterwards:

Now do the same again for the Base package - select Open with GDebi Package Installer (default) in Firefox:

Then install it using the Package Installer:

Afterwards, you can launch Speed Dreams by going to Applications > Games > Speed Dreams:

Here are a few screenshots of the game:
