You can use the Trenchbroom's gui to compile your map. There's some information in the manual and the ericw site's documentation also helps. I'll paste my settings so you can have a better idea of the whole thing (and maybe copy it):

Name: Exemple
Working directory: /home/vaf/qmap/id1/working

(First task)
Export map

(Second task)
Run tool
Tool: /home/vaf/qmap/id1/tools/ericw-tools-v0.18-Linux/bin/qbsp
Parameters: ${MAP_BASE_NAME} ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

(Third task)
Run tool
Tool: /home/vaf/qmap/id1/tools/ericw-tools-v0.18-Linux/bin/vis
Parameters: ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

(Fourth task)
Run tool
Tool: /home/vaf/qmap/id1/tools/ericw-tools-v0.18-Linux/bin/light
Parameters: -soft -extra4 ${MAP_BASE_NAME}.bsp

Note that I add -soft and -extra4 to the light tool. Bounce is often recommended too.

Sorry AFAIK there are no GUIs for Linux but you can use TrenchBrooms' built-in system. I taught the GUI way because that's the system I knew best and the compiling system in TrenchBroom may change eventually. I like the GUI better as you can toggle options on and off without having to set up a bunch of presents.

I sent you a reply. I am not too experienced with Quake 2 mapping. But we'll figure it out.

Also try these compilers : … uake2.html

I created a "Ready-to-Use" Quake Level Design Starter Kit based on dumptruck_ds's Quickstart tutorial.

You can clone it or download a ZIP release.

Check it out!
