How to run Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis on Fedora 27

As a kid, I remember playing (and loving) Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis. So, imagine my surprise when I found it on, and for only a couple of dollars!

I bought the game, but had trouble running it on my Fedora 27 machine. 1) The main trouble was solving an issue related to the readline library. The game requires, yet Fedora 27 has I thought maybe it was a 32-bit issue versus 64-bit, but I was wrong. Installing the compat-readline6.i686 library did nothing to help.

The solution is to download the (64-bit) library from here | backup archive. Don't install the RPM, but instead extract a single file: Take that extracted file and place it in the following directory:

~/GOG Games/Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis/scummvm/libs/x86_64/

Finally, rename the file to The game should run fine now.

Despite the game running flawlessly on Centos 7 and Ubuntu 16.04.
