You can then launch Dwarf Fortress by running 'dwarffortress' in your terminal emulator. The package also includes a .desktop file so the game should appear in whatever application launcher or menu you might use.
The first time a user launches the game, the directory .dwarffortress will be created in that user's home directory. Game settings and files can be changed there. Note that some of the directories in there are links to common directories and changes to them will effect all users. Also, any changes to common files should be backed up since they will be overwritten when the package updates. You can find the locations of files installed by the package with the command
People love free steam games, no doubt. But what many people hate is downloading so many parts and trying to install them on their own. This is why we are the only site that pre-installs every game for you. We have many categories like shooters, action, racing, simulators and even VR games! We strive to satisfy our users and ask for nothing in return. We revolutionized the downloading scene and will continue being your #1 site for free games.
Some of the directories in .dwarffortress/ are symlinks to directories in /opt/dwarffortress/. This includes the raw directory, so changes to /opt/dwarffortress/raw/ - either directly or through the link - will affect new games for all users. (Dwarf Fortress stores a copy of the raw directory for saves in the saves directory, so changes there will only affect that save for that user.)
To make changes to files in the main raw directory that only affect one user, either delete the link and copy the directory from /opt/dwarffortress/ to /.dwarffortress/, make the changes to a save (though that will not work for changes that affect world generation), or manually install a copy of Dwarf Fortress to a directory in the user's home directory and make the changes - and run the game from - there (see Manual or multiple installations on the Dwarf Fortress wiki).
Similarly to the Dwarf Fortress packages, the DFHack packages add files and symlinks to /.dwarffortress/, including dfhack-config/ which contains files that can be edited to configure DFHack. 59ce067264
