Installing the Kanon patch under Linux
(Note: All commands are examples. Depending on your linux distribution, you may need to adjust paths, commands, et cetera.)
- Copy the files from your Kanon Standard Edition or
Kanon Standard Edition All Ages Version CD to your hard
drive in a new folder. For example:
$ cp -R /media/cdrom0/ ~/Kanon.eng
- The fine people at Non-directional Translations have created their final patch that completely translates the game. Download Kanon.7z.
- Kanon.7z is meant to be unextracted on top of a normal Kanon Standard Edition install, but relies on a case-insensitive filesystem, such as NTFS. Grab a copy of my script, patch-kanon-en-ndt.sh, which will correctly install the files under Linux.
- Unextract NDT's patch into a temporary directory that isn't your
$ 7z x Kanon.7zIf the above command fails, you may need to install 7-zip. You can install it on Ubuntu Linux by typing:$ sudo apt-get install p7zip-full
- Run the script:
$ ./patch-kanon-en-ndt.sh </path/to/Patch Files/> ~/Kanon.eng
