What is AppImage?AppImage is a software that lets you build portable Linux binaries. Here, I host regular builds of Minetest as AppImages.
DownloadAll these AppImages are for 64-bit systems only, they will not work on 32-bit systems. Pick the client to play Minetest, pick the server to host a dedicated Minetest server.
Git ("master" development branch) client
Git ("master" development branch) server
All files (includes SHA-256 checksums and change log)
How do I run it?Any distribution released after Ubuntu 14.04 is supported (since Ubuntu 14.04 is used to compile the binaries). To run the AppImage, make it executable (using chmod +x or by right-cliking the file then selecting "Properties" then "Permissions", and checking the executable checkbox) then double-click it to start Minetest. No administrator/root rights are needed.
Note that you want to start the server from a terminal, else you won't see its output.
