How can I install Godot Engine using command line? Is there a PPA for Godot Engine? I am waiting for the command to install it like
sudo apt-get install godot-engine.
Answer adapted from here: https://cialu.net/install-godot-game-engine-on-fedora-or-ubuntu/
First, download the appropriate version for your system (32 bit or 64 bit) from the Godot Download Page.
Open a Terminal window and enter:
After, move the executable to /opt folder:
sudo mkdir /opt/Godot/ sudo mv Godot_v2.1-stable_x11.64 /opt/Godot/Godot
And make it executable:
sudo chmod +x /opt/Godot/Godot
Then, create and edit a launcher for Godot executable:
cd ~/.local/share/applications/ nano godot.desktop
Populate the .desktop file, writing this in nano, saving with CTRL-O and exiting with CTRL-X:
[Desktop Entry] Name=Godot Engine GenericName=Libre game engine Comment=Multi-platform 2D and 3D game engine with a feature rich editor Exec=/opt/Godot/Godot -pm Icon=godot Terminal=false Type=Application Categories=Development;IDE;
And now you can launch Godot from your desktop system. If you want to customize the icon, just put the Godot icon in your theme and name it
Perhaps not the answer you want...
There are stirrings on Launchpad but no PPA or anything looking useable at the moment.
I tried downloading the compiled binary but it segfaulted immediately when I ran it :|
sudo apt-get install build-essential scons pkg-config libx11-dev libxcursor-dev \ libxinerama-dev libgl1-mesa-dev libglu-dev libasound2-dev libpulse-dev \ libfreetype6-dev libssl-dev libudev-dev libxrandr-dev
Untar the source and enter the directory:
cd Downloads # or wherever you put it tar xf godot* cd godot*
Many CPU cycles later it compiled. The binary can be found in the
bin directory in the top level directory of the source. It runs fine for me. You can symlink it to a location in your PATH for easier running, or make a launcher.
I'm on 16.10 (Ubuntu MATE). YMMV.
