luk3yx's unofficial Minetest snap

This is my unofficial Minetest snap package, derived from the Minetest snap in the snappy playpen.


This snap is now deprecated, you should install the minetest snap instead. I will probably continue to update it, however I will not guarantee that it will have the latest version of Minetest.

NOTE: The snapcraft.yaml here is now mostly copied from the official snap.

How to install

Using sudo: (Ubuntu & Derivatives)

$ sudo snap install minetest-luk3yx

Using su:

$ su -c 'snap install minetest-luk3yx'

Note: Make sure that snapd is installed before running the above commands.
