Days ago noticed that finally Id released the linux port (and the QuakeLive.com Game Launcher addon for firefox) for the linux os.
The installation is obviously straightforward:
register, login install the plugin and restart firefox
visit the site again and the game will download all the necessary files
Another good game, and good porting for linux too, by Id Software, Inc!
[ Finally i can drop the additional windows xp hard drive used for QuakeLive ]
