How do I enable the console in Supertux2 v0.5.1 on Debian?

Postby michael_a » 2017-10-27 18:12

I installed Supertux2 from the Debian stretch/stable repositories. According to supertux2 --version, it's v0.5.1, but according to man supertux2, it's v0.3.2-SVN. Anyway. According to the documentation (http://supertux.lethargik.org/wiki/Console), I should be able to add (console #t) to the ~/.supertux2/config or ~/.local/share/supertux2/config file. Once I do that, however, pressing ^ (caret) inside the game doesn't bring up the console...

Plus, if I run supertux2 --console from the terminal, it says Error: Unknown option '--console'' even though the --console option is documented in the man page.

How do I enable the console?

The Stable repository has Supertux. Is that not good enough?

I'm not sure what you're asking; I installed Supertux from the stable repositories.

Your title says Supertux2. Ubuntu uses Supertux2. Did you get it from Ubuntu repositories? If so it may not work in Debian.

The package is named supertux, but the executable is named supertux2. There is no supertux (without the 2) executable on my systemI installed it directly from the Debian repositories; I'm only using packages from there.

Code: Select all
sudo aptitude install supertux


This is /etc/apt/sources.list

Code: Select all
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main non-free contrib
deb-src http://security.debian.org/debian-security stretch/updates main non-free contrib

# stretch-updates, previously known as 'volatile'
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main non-free contrib
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch-updates main non-free contrib

# Stretch backports
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ stretch-backports main non-free contrib

this can sometimes happen with low-maintenance packages - the man pages can be out of date.
can you
Code: Select all
supertux2 --help
or similar?

edit:
just had a look myself. no --console option.
maybe try '--developer' instead?
