This quick guide is specifically for Ubuntu 17.10 (and Debian, and potentially previous or future Ubuntu releases).

First off - grab the files you need. These are available under [Download] above. Also, install Euro Truck Simulator and all related DLC's from Steam. Take a look at the general installation instructions if you want some help in doing this.

You'll need something to extract the archive. In Ubuntu 17.10 at-least full 7zip extraction abilities are supported. Just extract your files into a single folder - once you've grabbed everything you should have something that looks like this:


Now - lets make it all work. Remember that directory you saved your mod data to? Well, glad you remembered it because at this point is is easier to linux-fu it. I saved mine in ~/promods/ (where ~/ is your home directory) so things are easy, you may want to as well. Lets quickfire this in a single command (in your Linux terminal):

cd ~/.local/share/Euro\ Truck\ Simulator\ 2/ && mkdir mod && mv ~/promods/* mod/ && cd ~/ && rm -rf ~/promods

Launch ETS, enable the mod and enjoy! Simple huh?

Some say, I'm addicted to ETS2. But then I say. No, it's ProMods, it's a way of life.
No. 3 forum spammer!

No need to use terminal

For the ones that are unaware, in most file managers you just press CTRL+H to show hidden directories, then navigate to .local/share/Euro Truck Simulator 2/mod and paste the .scs files

Then press CTRL+H again to hide hidden directories
