Getting it going on Debian is a pain (libc6 is too old, even on unstable). The fine gamer forums recommend installing libc6 direct from Ubuntu, which is a ridiculously stupid thing to do.
Here’s a nice little workaround: https://gist.github.com/grindars/4231563. It grabs the Ubuntu packages, extracts them locally, and sets up LD_LIBRARY_PATH shenanigans to make things work. That’s the right way to do it.
