Error with mods

by PleaseHelpah » Post

Been trying to get mods to work on Linux, never seems to... Is it retarded or???

When using a windows server and the gui I can get mods to load just fine...
On debian linux with a run in place installation aka /home/whatever-user/minetest/mods I extract say a weather mod like so: I obviously wget https://github.com/Jeija/minetest-mod-w ... ter.tar.gz && tar -zxvf mine* so it puts master.tar.gz into the mods folder, I then rename the folder inside mods from minetest_mod_weather-master to minetest_mod_weather and shabang, just never works or loads, says could not be found...

What could be the issue? Does it just not work on linux anymore?

Or is it just looking in the wrong place and how would I check? Thanks!

Clearly it is in the right folder, and I've added in
load_mod_minetest_mod_weather = true
Inside world.mt
But no deal? What's wrong ?

I've tried to rename the mod to simply weather and made sure no folder inside weather has another folder called weather....

Minetest does not complain about anything failing to load...

However inside world.mt as soon as I set load_mod_weather = true
I save and exit and reboot minetest only to find it has changed to load_mod_weather = false

init.lua = modpath=minetest.get_modpath("weather"),

So I assume it is looking for a folder inside mods called weather

what is the mod name in the init.lua for the mod?

Name your mod folder to that.

in 5.2 and maybe 5.1.1 there is a default mod called "weather" too. You might have to deal with a possible conflict or workaround.

However, farming_redo works on top of the default farming mod. You just install it and it overrides it. Same with a boats mod i've been using.

Conclusion: Ensure correct directory structure, CLI arguments and install mods properly.
