Linux installer: extract without using GUI

Postby shatsky » Tue Apr 19, 2011 9:42 pm

Greetings!
Is there a proper way to extract files of Linux versions of your games from their installers without using GUI? I'd like to write gentoo ebuilds to install them Linux-way, so that files would be registered by the package manager. Or, if installer is a 3rd party application, link to its homepage will be enough.
Thanks.

Hi!

You should be able to extract the files with Unzip, e.g. "unzip Trine.64.run".
