LÖVE on Ubuntu 8.04

Post by 7amza » Wed Jun 04, 2008 6:52 am

Hi , i installed LÖVE at ubuntu Hardy 8.04 and has a little problem.

I trying LÖVE i tried to apply this tutorial http://love.sourceforge.net/docs/Getting_started.html , though i can't drage the folder into LÖVE and make it work .!

Though the article of getting started , considers only LÖVE's windows executable file .!

I don't actually use love, but considering how dragging a file onto an application usually works in Windows.
Try:
>love /home/~user/LoveHelloWorld

That is, if your username is user and LoveHelloWorld is the Hello World application's directory which you've placed in your home dir.
Well, that's my guess anyway.
Take off every Zigg for great rapist.
Now, outgay that!

On Linux, you're probably better off typing "love path/to/my/game", like Sardtok says.

Have you tried running just "love" without any parameters to verify that it works at all? You should see a hovering mini-moose. 8-)

All you need to do is create a .zip-file with all your game content, rename it to .love and run love mygame.love. Make sure that main.lua is on the root inside the .zip-file, not inside some folder!
