(Copied and improved an earlier post):

I prefer to compile the latest minetest on my Lubuntu, following the steps in the readme.txt on minetest.net, Github under Compiling on GNU/Linux (scroll down untill you find it): https://github.com/celeron55/minetest

You can copy the next 11 alineas and paste them in your Terminal (Left 'lubuntu' button and then under Accessoires, gives you a medium sized black screen). Copy them one by one, so first the first one, paste it in your terminal and then hit the enter/return key on your keyboard. Then copy the next line, paste it in your terminal and then hit enter, etc, etc... The first alinea is 1 line, although it looks like 2 (to get your libraries (up-to-date)).

NB!! I have made the second link look like code, because otherwise it isn't copied and paste right in this post

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

sudo apt-get install build-essential libirrlicht-dev cmake libbz2-dev libpng12-dev libjpeg8-dev libxxf86vm-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libsqlite3-dev libogg-dev libvorbis-dev libopenal-dev

wget https://github.com/celeron55/minetest/tarball/master -O master.tar.gz

tar xf master.tar.gz

cd celeron55-minetest-1db0334

cd games/

Code: Select all

wget https://github.com/celeron55/minetest_game/tarball/master -O master.tar.gz
tar xf master.tar.gz

mv celeron55-minetest_game-* minetest_game

cd ..

cmake . -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1

make -j2

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now you can type exit in your terminal and go to your home folder, where there should be a directory like this:
/home/Markveidemanis/celeron55-minetest-1db0334

Doubleclick bin, and then minetest and choose singleplayer, new

I installed the latest version (11 november 2012) this morning (now) using the lines from above and everything worked. (Actually, rewriting this instruction took 10x more time than compiling minetest). + VanessaE's improvements are incorporated too!

I hope it works for you too or that else others can help you better!

You can't have capital letters in your username on any Unix-like OS. ;)

Lol, I never checked that. In the system profiler I indeed see it changes my name into lower-cases.

I don't know. There's no active link under minetest.net, downloads.

I guess it's only available from another source. My settings to apt-get packages from sources are:

Edit: removed

You can check if you have checked the same boxes as I.
Go to: System tools, update manager, settings:
1. Ubuntu software
2. Other software

The minetest.conf appears in the celeron55-minetest-0709918 folder when you start a game for the first time. I find that the easiest way, because it fills in some standard stuff. You can also make it yourself using the minetest.conf.example.

I never tried to make a shortcut in lubuntu...

Never tried that too. Maybe I'm going to just to learn, but not now.
