Before you begin, make sure you have write permissions on your current working directory. $HOME/$USER is a pretty safe bet. I recommend that you create a permanent /$HOME/$USER/src directory from which you run the svn command, this way git/svn will only update the files changed the next time you download the source and it's always nice to have things organized. Make sure you have git/svn installed on your system. See the [[Fs2_open_on_Linux/Installing Git|Installing Git]] chapter on installing Git.

Note: This step is only for those who want the bleeding-edge source code to compile on their own. You can skip this if you intend to use a provided binary executable.

Before you begin, make sure you have write permissions on your current working directory. $HOME/$USER is a pretty safe bet. I recommend that you create a permanent /$HOME/$USER/src directory from which you run the git command, this way git will only update the files changed the next time you download the source and it's always nice to have things organized. Make sure you have git installed on your system. See the Installing Git chapter on installing Git.

Now get the source. Run from a terminal:

$ git clone https://github.com/scp-fs2open/fs2open.github.com.git

This will pull in the most recent source code from the 'master' branch.
