Ubuntu - Missing Common after upgrade to Minetest 0.4.6

by Utilizador Anónimo » Post

Hi, after upgrade minetest, various components of common are missing.

I tried paste the common folder in game folder and don't results.

Also, I tried reinstall the game, compile and same result.

Lately. I've formatted and installed ubuntu 13 and install minetest from repositories and have same problem.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks

Which Debian repositories are you using?
"Spill some blood for me dear Brother" Vicente Valtiare, Oblivion

Currently using Minetest 0.4.7 Ubuntu Daily Build on Ubuntustudio 13.10 Saucy Salamander 64bit (based on Ubuntu 13:10)
Trolls will be shot on sight!!!

Common is no longer used by the default games or included with standard builds, as it has been discontinued. Rather, be sure your copy of minetest_game is up-to-date, as it has everything that was in common.

If you have some game that needs mods from common, copy into its mods folder that which it needs from minetest_game, and contact the maintainer of that game and let them know to update it on their end.

The code that makes common usable is still present, so if you absolutely must have it, get it from here: https://github.com/minetest/common ...and put it in your games folder along with the game that needs it. This method is deprecated now.

The stable ppa should contain common.

The common folder it's already in games folder and same result.

Installing from ppa doesn't work.

I found a temporary solution, installing the portable version of game form one script and it works for me.

This temporary solution is in this post: http://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.php?id=3837

Thanks to everybody

Same result to daily ppa.

The portable version crashes all the time and I return to stable ppa.

I have common installed but the mods configuration detect missing: default / wool / vessels / fire / wool / doors.

Without mods the game it's normal (I have doors working).

I'm sad because in the another version it has everything okay.

I get something similiar in Arch Linux when trying to start a game.

"ModError: Required common mods "default", "bucket", "creative", "doors", "dye", "fire", "stairs", "vessels", "wool", could not be found."

Edit: I installed an other minetest package with common mods included.

Common will be dropped in 0.4.7, so maybe just wait until it comes out. (I think it will be released soon).
