I followed the following instructions for setting up a Garry's Mod server in Linux via the command line;


 mkdir ~/Steam
 cd ~/Steam 
 wget http://media.steampowered.com/client/steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
 tar -xvzf steamcmd_linux.tar.gz
 ./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +force_install_dir ../gmodds +app_update 4020 validate +quit

Then I can run it with ./srcds_run -game garrysmod +maxplayers 32 +map gm_construct

I can launch and play on my Garry's Mod server now, but how do I get additional game modes and maps? I really want a server running the game mode Murder on CS_Office but I can't figure out how to do it.

I have Counter Strike Source downloaded, but the maps haven't appeared in the maps folder. I also don't know where to download Murder from.

I can change the game mode to Trouble in Terrorist Town but only because it came preinstalled into the gamemodes folder, I'm not sure where to download other game modes though.



You're looking for +gamemode murder. You may need CSS: ./steamcmd.sh +app_update 232330 validate.

I'm not sure if this will work, but if you try:

./srcds_run -game garrysmod +maxplayers 32 +map cs_office +host_workshop_collection 187073946 -authkeyYOUR_SECRET_API_KEY+gamemode murder

Where 187073946 is the identifier for Murder.

Be sure you have added CSS to your gm/garrysmod/cfg/mount.cfg:

"cstrike" "/mnt/data/games/Steam/SteamApps/common/Counter-Strike Source Dedicated Server/cstrike"
