[Linux] Minetest Appimages

by An0n3m0us » Post

Calinou seems to have stopped updating his Minetest AppImage builds, so I decided to build Minetest and create an AppImage out of it. You can download it here:

https://github.com/An0n3m0us/Minetest-AppImages

First, make the AppImage an executable by using `chmod +x <file>` in the terminal or by right-clicking the file then selecting "Properties" then "Permissions", and checking the executable checkbox. Double-click the AppImage to run Minetest.

Credit to Calinou. I used the libraries from his x64 AppImage to quickly set up my AppImages for Minetest 64 bit. Without his AppImage it would have taken me a long time to collect the libraries.

AppImages for Minetest 5.2.0 are now available!

Here's the link to Calinou's post: viewtopic.php?f=42&t=15802

Hi, just wanted to say thank you for your hard work. The AppImage works a treat.

Will you be bringing out the 5.1 AppImage soon?

All the best, Chris

I've been working on getting reliable AppImages for Minetest for a few days now. I will likely try to get a PR going once all the configuration tweaks are worked out (hopefully with TravisCI integration assuming no devs disagree with using it for builds).

Thanks for the AppImage for MT 5.2.0, but I got into problem running it on my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. When executing it complains about /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgssapi.so.3, it might be missing or a library that depends on it might be missing too. This is an error I get when running it

Code: Select all

/tmp/.mount_MineteDt7sYG/usr/bin/minetest-x86_64.bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libgssapi.so.3: undefined symbol: rk_memset_s, version HEIMDAL_ROKEN_1.0

I've packaged Minetest 5.3.0-dev (454dbf8) as an AppImage. It can be downloaded here:

https://github.com/An0n3m0us/Minetest-A ... /5.3.0-dev

Minetest 5.2.0 AppImages have been updated to work on Ubuntu 20.04 and should work on Fedora 32 and Manjaro 20.0 too.

Thanks for this. It's perfect since it can be run in portable mode, meaning i can keep my older versions of MT also. I had been looking at different solutions for this, but this is the best, and was right here all the time.

@Oil_boi @goats You're welcome!

I'm currently automating the process as it's all manual, except for the compiling process :P
