[Solved] Not getting New Version?

by BreadSticks » Post

So I can't get the new version of Minetest for some odd reason. No matter how hard I try it doesn't work. I try to install it threw Ubuntu Center, Terminal, Minetest Forums. Nothing works. I keep on getting 0.4.13. I use Ubuntu Mate. Can anyone help?

What OS version do you use? Make sure you're on the latest stable version.

If you can't, then you can use the PPA: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable

If you type `which minetest' it will report something like: "/usr/bin/minetest", and you can do something like `/usr/bin/minetest --version'.

Another thing to try is dpkg -L minetest, which shows where things are placed. If you compile yourself, and do a system-wide install (now the default), then perhaps minetest is in /usr/local/bin. I think /usr/local/bin/minetest gets chosen over /usr/bin/minetest, though.

Don't forget to do `make install' if you are compiling yourself, unless you elect to use -DRUN_IN_PLACE=1, in which case you must issue e.g. `bin/minetest'.

Good luck!

Whoa... when did you become a moderator, rubenwardy?

Are you going to this site for it? It has the latest stable release.

Try running apt update before the install or ipgrade

Please may I see the terminal logs for this? Preferably including apt-add.

apt-get update
apt-get remove -y Minetest
apt-get install -y minetest

Doesn't work. Guess I'll have this version for now.
