AutoPackage installs into ~/.local
But to start the game you only need to start a new shell (that is important to reload the path setting) and type warzone2100. AutoPackage modified the path for your user to find the game.

1. Get the warzone2100-2.0.5_rc1.package (It will be easiest if you save it to your home directory.)
2. Open a shell/terminal/console (eg "xterm" or "konsole")
3. "cd" to the directory where you saved the .package too. (eg "cd the/directory/with/the/file", leave this out if the file is in your home directory.)
4. Type "sh warzone2100-2.0.5_rc1.package"
5. When asked whether to install localy or system wide choose "2" (localy).
6. Follow the instructions.
7. Run the game from your Gnome or KDE menu, section "Games/Strategy" or open a _new_ shell and type "warzone2100". (It needs to be a new shell, because otherwise your system won't find the executable, because AutoPackage changed the PATH, which only a newly started shell recognizes.)

If you don't have PhysFS installed, the AutoPackage _should_ download and install it automatically.
I just tested it here and it worked...
If you really can't get that to work you could also download and install http://download.gna.org/warzone/.autopa ... 86.package
