Title: VED Crash on Ubuntu (source download using LOVE, and also on a linux)
Post by: Yolotroll101 on April 19, 2018, 03:22:37 am
Here is the story leading up to this point.

I had just recently gotten a chomebook. The literal FIRST thing I did was put it into dev mode and installing ubuntu. I had to learn linux obviously and now i have a general understanding on how to install crap. I had installed a few things, and now i have an issue. I had just successfully gotten LOVE (so i can use VED) and I just now tried running VED. Then I got the red screen of BS. First time running and instant crash. This is the error: https://imgur.com/a/VU1gTCr (https://imgur.com/a/VU1gTCr).

Can this please be explained to me??!? (also I definitely 100% installed LOVE correctly...)

LÖVE 11.x is too recent, Ved doesn't support it yet until the next version. I already made support for 11.x, but I haven't released that yet, however I did push it to the repository, which you can clone in the meantime!

(love Source)

ok so this one should work with LOVE 1.1? (also keep in mind, I am a smart-ish 13 year old with little understanding of how linux works, and also I have ubuntu on a samsung chromebook.)

Yeah, it should work on the version of LÖVE you installed.

First of all, to download the repository, you can run git clone https://gitgud.io/Dav999/ved.git in a terminal wherever you want to put it (which allows you to pull in changes later without having to redownload everything) or you can download it as a zip/tarball with the download button on the right of the main repository page (next to "Find file"):

Any of those can be easily extracted on Ubuntu by double-clicking as far as I know.

When you have all the files (extracted), there should also be a folder called Source. If you first double-clicked the .love file, you should be able to run love in a terminal followed by the path to the Source folder, like this: love path/to/ved/Source
