shirish is on a distinguished road
sure, take your time. This is how angband is shown in Debian testing -

$ aptitude show angband
Package: angband                         
Version: 1:3.5.1-2.2+b1
State: not installed
Priority: optional
Section: games
Maintainer: Chris Carr <>
Architecture: amd64
Uncompressed Size: 3,254 k
Depends: libc6 (>= 2.14), libncursesw6 (>= 6), libsdl-image1.2 (>= 1.2.10), libsdl-mixer1.2, libsdl-ttf2.0-0,
         libsdl1.2debian (>= 1.2.11), libtinfo6 (>= 6), libx11-6, angband-data
Recommends: xfonts-base
Suggests: angband-audio, angband-bigtiles
There are however couple of angband audio bugs which have been there a while -


maybe an updated SDL build with the SDL2 frontend, audio etc. may fix some of the problems. Of course the maintainer would have to do the packaging part but it might work. I would signal to the maintainer that we are going to try and have an updated build with SDL2 .

This is how most libsdl2 libraries look , just sharing the working parts at the moment -

$ dpkg -L libsdl2-mixer-dev
There are coding documentation examples in -
Unfortunately (or not) the bigtiles package is no more there

$ aptitude show angband-bigtiles
No candidate version found for angband-bigtiles
Package: angband-bigtiles
State: not a real package
Let's focus though on one thing at one time, the other things we can try to do later if we can.
