Installing Speed Dreams
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:
