Kirk already made a Dotpup some weeks ago.
This one here has a small menu, where you can choose between 3 different versions:

SDL (slow, but runs on every computer)
GL(old) (fast, from 2004 (Slakware 10))
GL(new) newest version of d2x-xl, with additional effects, from http://www.descent2.de .

Download (7.8 MB):
http://dotpups.de/dotpups/Games/descent2.pup
Needs this library:

To play the GL-versions in good speed, use the 3D-card-wizard to enable accelleration for your graficscard:

With OpenGL, on my system the menus are almost unreadable, is that related to my graficscard, or do you have that, too?
These screenshots might help you to use them anyway:

If you have a full version of Descent2, you can play it too.
It will have menus, that don't look "garbled".
According to reports here, the menu-problem with the shareware-episodes happens with ATI-Radeon-drivers only.

Those comments are really worth to be read completely for different "full" reasons...

Now here a tip, how to use the full version.
Copy some files to /usr/local/descent2 , and rename them to lowercase.
So ICE.PIG becomes ice.pig

Here is my directory-listing to help you:

alien1.pig
alien2.pig
asd.plr
d2x.ini
d2x.png
d2x-xl
d2x-xl.hog
default.plr
descent2.ham
descent2.hog
descent2.s11
descent2.s22
descent.tex.eng
descent.tex.ger
fire.pig
GL
groupa.pig
ice.pig
icon.xpm
play-descent2
readme.txt
README.TXT
robot-h.mvl
robots-h.mvl
SDL
water.pig
