Re: Minetest 0.4.17.1 (Bugfix release)

Based on your results, at a minimum, I would suggest removing (un-installing) minetest, minetest-data, and minetest-server before trying to enable the PPA that both I and GreenDiamond suggested. You should remove all three because the second and third are built into the PPA. If you don't remove all ...

Re: Minetest 0.4.17.1 (Bugfix release)

It is probably best if you remove the default system Minetest before trying to add the PPA. EDIT: You do have full sudo privileges, correct? Or is this a computer owned by school, work or family on which you do not have full rights to add non-official (other than Ubuntu repository) packages. To work...

GD gave good instructions, that should have worked. In fact, that is how I installed the current version of MT on my laptop running LinuxMint 18.x (based on Xenial). If you didn't do so, I would try again on the off chance there was a connection issue, or a problem with the Launchpad servers. The on...

Re: [SERVER] Extreme Survival Minetest [ESM5]

I can think of at least 3 ways to create farm fields if you are not able to get admin help. But, you must have ruled them out already since placing water is not needed for any of them. I've seen maike use at least two of them in videos from his ESM4 servers.
