Have you looked at the downloads page yet? https://www.minetest.net/downloads/
That page should explain how to install or update minetest.
If you use apt, the PPA could work: https://code.launchpad.net/~minetestdev ... ly-builds/

After you added PPA and did sudo apt-get update, to download new minetest package you have to type:
Code: Select all
sudo apt-get upgrade

LXDE is a desktop environment that will run on top of many different Linux distributions.

Are you running LXDE on Ubuntu (Lubuntu), Fedora, or what other distribution? What version number of your distribution are you on?

The PPA is used for Ubuntu based distributions; Ubuntu, Kubuntu, LinuxMint, Zorin, Elementary OS, etc. It is of no use for Debian, Fedora, Arch, OpenSuse, etc.

Late to the party. Assuming Lubuntu as distro. FYI LXDE can be installed on any distribution.
There's how you'd do it with the stable PPA. Even on Debian you can use them, but it will be a bit tricky.

1) Open a terminal
2) sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable
3) sudo apt update
If Minetest is already installed, update it:
4) sudo apt install --only-upgrade minetest
Otherwise, install it:
4) sudo apt install minetest

Source: https://launchpad.net/~minetestdevs/+ar ... ntu/stable
This will work for sure. Please post error logs or a description or what's not working if you still have troubles.

PS: This will install 5.0.1, not 0.4.17 since that version is already outdated.
