How to install a Texurepack on Xubuntu

by Stix » Wed Aug 23, 2017 15:51

Im making this topic for people like me who didnt know how to install a TP on Xubuntu. special thanks to PEAK for teaching me how to install one. And now for the tutorial:

To install a texurepack on Xubuntu you:

#1 pick the texturepack of your choice.
#2 enter "ls -a" in your terminal to show hidden files.
#3 create the directory "textures" in" /home/'insert_username_here'/.minetest" by entering "mkdir textures" in your terminal once you have changed directory to "/home/'insert_username_here'/.minsetest" if there isnt a directory by that name already.
#4 move the texturepack folder into "/home/'insert_username_here'/.minetest/textures.
#5 now open the client and select the texturepack
#6 congrats on installing your first texturepack!!!

2: why?
3: you create a directory here, not a file
5: at least you copied it to the correct location so MT can load it if selected within the client

Code: Select all
# Create the needed directory and (if needed) its parents
mkdir -p ${HOME}/.minetest/textures

# Copy the unzipped texture pack folder to the needed directory
cp unzipped_texturepack/ ${HOME}/.minetest/textures

Now open the client and select the texture pack.

... done :)

As far as i know on this path /home/'insert_username_here'/.minetest/ you need to create folder 'texturepacks', not 'textures'.
