Problem: Linux download is broken for new versions of linux

What happens: Game doesn't even open after downloading, nothing happens, tried on different PC's.

Description: Currently the directions on how to install runescape3 for linux is broken and only works for old versions (16.04), anything newer it will have broken packages. Linux has already updated from 17, 18, and now it is at 19 and the button still hasn't been updated.

Solution:

sudo -s -- << EOF
cd ~/Downloads
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/161405671/libglew1.10_1.10.0-3_amd64.deb
wget http://launchpadlibrarian.net/233197129/libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i libglew1.10_1.10.0-3_amd64.deb libpng12-0_1.2.54-1ubuntu1_amd64.deb
wget -O - https://content.runescape.com/downloads/ubuntu/runescape.gpg.key | apt-key add -
mkdir -p /etc/apt/sources.list.d
echo "deb [trusted=yes] https://content.runescape.com/downloads/ubuntu trusty non-free" > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/runescape.list
apt-get update
apt-get install -y --allow-unauthenticated libcurl3 runescape-launcher
EOF
