Minetest not generating/reading minetest.conf

by daniovision » Fri Sep 26, 2014 15:48

Hello,
I'm experiancing a problem, where minetest does not generate minetest.conf in "/home/{username}/.minetest".
In fact, the only thing there is the world. No mods, no configuration, no nothing.
Minetest Version: 0.4.10
Operating System: Ubuntu 14.04 Server
VPS Specs: 1GB of ram, 10GB of disk space (922MB available)

Is anyone experiancing the same problem, and is it fixable?

Hi,

just generate it manually, copy the minetest.conf.example and rename it minetest.conf, edit it, and start your server

Yeah, but it refuses to read that. Even doing "--config /home/{username}/.minetest/minetest.conf" doesn't help.

I'm guessing not, but I might be wrong. I installed it using apt-get, from the Ubuntu ppa (https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+archive/ubuntu/stable).

My minetest.conf, in case any of you could find it useful:
Code: Select all
address = **.**.***.***
name = daniovision
remote_port = 30000
server_dedicated = false
public_serverlist = true
server_name = Test server
server_description = Test server?
motd = Test server!
max_users = 10

You need to enable the in the GUI or alternatively edit minetest\worlds\yourworld\world.mt
Dummy content:
Code: Select all
gameid = minetest
backend = sqlite3
load_mod_foo = true
load_mod_bar = false
Look, I programmed a bug for you. >> Mod Search Engine << - Mods by Krock - DuckDuckGo mod search bang: !mtmod <keyword here>

Thanks, mods are now working, but I still can't load the config file. :/
Not even after a complete ubuntu reinstall.
The minetest.conf is at "/home/{user}/.minetest/minetest.conf", I'm guessing this is the correct directory.

When you use the gui to adjust settings, run a singleplayer game and close minetest. Then open minetest once again... do your new settings stick? If not, you must be correct that one isn't generated. If they do stick, there is a minetest.conf somewhere.
Running a search in your home dir may turn it up?

Edit: Nevermind. I didn't notice you were running from a VPS. I'm assuming not a local box.

Not there, creating that directory and putting the config in there doesn't work either. :(
Could it be that I'm running the Server edition of Ubuntu 14.04?
