Copied from release thread (click link for even more info):

Patch to version 1.0.4 available here.

It has been 40 years since the devastating war between the Colonials and the Cylons. 40 years where no one has seen or heard of the Cylons. 40 years where the armistice has held.

Installation instructions:

(Sorry, but no one on the team has the time or expertise needed to make native Linux packages. We're hoping that each distro's community will be able to find people willing to maintain packages for their distro.)

First, open a terminal and change to the directory where you downloaded Diaspora.

Then open the archive by typing

tar --lzma -xf Diaspora_R1_Linux.tar.lzma

or if that command doesn't work, the following two commands instead:

unlzma -z -k Diaspora_R1_linux.tar.lzma

tar -xf Diaspora_R1_Linux.tar

Then follow the instructions in Diaspora_R1_Linux/Diaspora/README.txt, with one correction: after you start the launcher in step 5, select your screen resolution from the drop down box in the Basic Settings tab before you press Play. Otherwise, you'll be running in 1024x768.
