My problem is, that I want to install Openttd on my Debian 9 computer, so I can host a dedicated Openttd server for me and my friends.
But I'm new to Linux and I have no idea how to install Openttd.
With
Code:
apt-get install openttd
only Openttd 1.6.1 is being installed and I'm stuck at the point of compiling the GitHub source code.

Don't install from the package manager, download the generic linux binary and use that.
Alternatively, download the ubuntu binary (if it matches your version), and install that file at the command-line, ie https://askubuntu.com/questions/40779/h ... mmand-line

I installed the Linux Generic Binaries, but I don't know how to install it. Can you tell me how, or link to a post/ article where someone is explaining it?

Just download, unpack, and run it, ie
Code:
# Download openttd-1.8.0-linux-generic-amd64.tar.gz

# Unpack
tar xzf openttd-1.8.0-linux-generic-amd64.tar.gz

# Run it
cd openttd-1.8.0-linux-generic-amd64
./openttd

You do need to have a base set installed, the readme.txt file in the directory explains it, section 4.1.1
(The base set can be re-used for both older and newer openttd versions, so you don't need to download it again if you already have it.)

Simplest way to do OpenTTD on most operating systems is get the binary for your OS and unpack the contents to a folder you can remember. Since your using Debian, you'd want to grab the Generic Linux binary, preferably the 64bit version if your computer/OS is 64-bit. Typically I might just unpack the zip to a "GAMES" folder and for the current OpenTTD install I would name its folder "OpenTTD Stable 1.8.0 Linux 64" (just in case you ever need to have multiple versions)

Since i dont use debian, much less linux these days, I dont know what Archive tool it has but I'm sure most modern linux distros have some graphical archieve tool to unpack zips, tars, gzips, etc.

I managed to install Openttd on my server thanks to Alberth. But I changed my OS to Ubuntu Server and installed the Linux Generic Binary.
Thanks for your Help.
