How to make Garry's Mod server on Linux / Ubuntu.

STEPS TO FOLLOW:

  • Step 1 - Creating GarrysMod Server Directory
  • Step 2 - Accessing and downloading HldsUpdateTool.bin
  • Step 3 - Getting all the permisions to the file that we've just downloaded
  • Step 4 - Running hldsupdatetool.com and downloading Steam onto the Linux machine
  • Step 5 - Downloading Garrys Mod Server
  • Step 6 - Starting the server
  • Step 1 - Creating GarrysMod Server Directory

    Create directory called GarrysMod in your /home/ directory. You can also do this manually, but I like to do it through a console :)
    mkrir GarrysMod


    Step 2 - Accessing and downloading HldsUpdateTool.bin

    After you have created GarrysMod directory in /home/, now its time to access the folder and download the tools which we will be needing to make a Garry's Mod server!
    Open you termonal and type:
    cd GarrysMod
    This will access your GarrysMod dicecroty.



    Now its time to finally download and launch HldsUpdateTool.bin, which we will download from the Steam website.
    Open your console and type this:

    wget http://steampowered.com/download/hldsupdatetool.bin

    This should download a file called hldsupdate tool into the GarrysMod directory!



    Step 3 - Getting all the permisions to the file that we've just downloaded

    To get full access to a file hldsupdatetool.bin, simply type this into your console.
    cd /GarrysMod
    chmod +x hldsupdatetool.bin

     


    Step 4 - Running hldsupdatetool.com and downloading Steam

     

    Step 5 - Downloading Garrys Mod Server

    Now the most important thing is to download the Server, open the terminal and type this in:

    ./steam -command update -game garrysmod -dir GarrysMod

    After you've typed the command into the terminal, you will see something similar to this.

    Don't panic, when it says "Missing" File.

    After its done downloading you will see a message saying "HLDS installation up to date".

    Good, now it is a time to finally start the Garry's Mod Server...

     

    Step 6 - Starting the server

    Now it is time to start our server :)

    Open "gedit" (or other text editor), and type this code in:

    #!/bin/sh
    echo "Starting your server..."
    sleep 1

    cd ~/GarrysMod/orangebox
    ./shrds_run -console -game garrysmod +map gm_construct_13 -autoupdate +maxplayers 10 +ip 127.0.0.1 -tickrate 1000 -port 27017 -debug

    Just like on the picture bellow:

    Then you will have to save a document as .sh file format to be able to run it through the terminal.

    After you have saved this document, double click on the file and you will see this window:

    Click on "Run in Terminal"

    After that you should see a termilal box:

    After its done loading you should be able to see something like "VAC secure mode is activated"

    Now your server its up and running and you can connect to it and play.

    Remember if you want to play with your friends you have to consider opening a aditional ports on your router or modem.
