00:34 marktraceur !ask
00:34 marktraceur lordawe: Hello! When you're on IRC it's usually good practice to jump right in and ask a question, as it saves time for everyone involved :) how can we help you?
00:35 lordawe I have maged to install and run MT 0.4.11 on Kodibuntu (lubuntu)
00:35 lordawe but I can't find where is minetest.conf stored
00:35 lordawe I am ew to linux
00:35 lordawe new
00:35 marktraceur lordawe: You may need to create it.
00:36 lordawe well, I even do not know where is the rest of MT files :)
00:36 marktraceur Well, where did you put them?
00:37 lordawe i have installed it from Synaptic
00:37 lordawe and executable is in /usr/share/applications
00:38 lordawe I just see it under menu>games>minetest
00:38 bas080 joined #minetest
00:40 lordawe joined #minetest
00:44 lordawe there is something in /usr/bin/X11/
00:46 lordawe minetest and minetestserver
00:47 acerspyro wait what
00:47 acerspyro Wtf would it be doing in /usr/bin/X11?
00:48 lordawe I have found it
00:48 lordawe in /usr/share/minetest
00:49 lordawe that in X11 was some symlink
00:49 acerspyro impossible
00:49 acerspyro oh the config
00:49 acerspyro ok
00:50 lordawe please, how can I run MT server in lubuntu? it should autostart after the boot
00:50 Kalabasa joined #minetest
00:51 lordawe i can run it on windows easily
00:53 lordawe oh, I have found it http://wiki.minetest.net/Setting_up_a_server

01:28 neal have you guys been haggled by mojang or microsoft?
01:29 acerspyro No
01:29 acerspyro and never will
01:29 neal cool
01:29 acerspyro We are true to our open-source
01:29 acerspyro We stand high on the pile of cocaine and dope.
01:30 acerspyro That is how we get our money. Fuck corporations.
01:30 neal how hard is it to mod the game?
01:30 acerspyro neal: very not hard.
01:30 acerspyro Just learn some lua, learn how to use the API
01:30 acerspyro And that should be it
01:31 Caleneledh I can attest to that.  It's a little unusual at first (especially if you haven't used lua before) but it's fairly easy to pick up.

01:32 est31 I want my if (value = get_value) == nil
01:32 sofar was reasonably easy for me to switch from bukkit to minetest, even wrote a game engine C++ patch already within 2 weeks of hacking a lua mod
01:33 acerspyro sofar sogood, sowhat?
01:33 sofar the problem is that I've identified at least 4-5 areas where major work needs to be done - so my TODO has grown ;)

05:48 sofar in git, it appears door sounds don't play if you use the door bottom instead of the top
05:48 sofar anyone seen that?
05:51 Miner_48er joined #minetest
05:56 T4im hmm… shouldn't they share the collisionbox by now?
05:56 T4im eh… selectionbox
05:56 T4im oh they don't
05:56 T4im well that would explain that
05:57 T4im while I don't have that problem with the sound, having two separate selectionboxes for the same door seems unnecessary
05:58 T4im though your sound problem is probably introduced by 6157982… haven't that locally yet

13:23 zatherz hmm, I haven't played this for a while and wanted to check it out again
13:23 zatherz but the game hangs when I join a server
13:25 zatherz nothing in log
13:26 zatherz with --verbose I see that it hangs after "14:26:00: INFO[main]: Audio: Deinitializing..."
13:30 twoelk joined #minetest
13:33 zatherz loading worlds also doesn't work
13:37 twoelk zatherz: what servers are you trying?
13:37 zatherz new local world and m.ayntest.net
13:37 zatherz none of servers from the server list work too
13:37 zatherz it even hangs on non existant servers
13:38 twoelk it always hangs on connecting to if the server does not exist
13:38 zatherz but what about it hanging on local worlds and existing servers?
13:40 twoelk https://github.com/minetest/minetest/issues/2219 <- like that?
13:40 zatherz no
13:41 zatherz no additional mods are installed and it does not segfault
13:41 zatherz it just hangs
13:41 zatherz the game hangs I mean
13:41 twoelk hehe or that? -> https://forum.minetest.net/viewtopic.ph​p?f=10&amp;t=4057&amp;p=168553#p168552
13:41 zatherz no
13:41 twoelk ah new issue
13:41 twoelk cool
13:42 zatherz using Arch Linux x86_64
13:42 zatherz minetest 0.4.11
13:42 casimir joined #minetest
13:42 zatherz and irrlicht 1.8.1
13:42 zatherz I'll try minetest-git from UAR
13:42 zatherz *AUR
13:43 twoelk 0.4.11 stable was pretty unstable :D
13:44 zatherz building
13:44 twoelk that's why v0.4.12 is only a few hours away or days or ....
13:45 zatherz ...years
13:46 * twoelk btw hasn't a clue how to rule out soundcard related problems
13:47 twoelk yeah like - reality takes a look at minetest relaease plan schedule and laughs
13:47 twoelk -a
13:49 sfan5 zatherz: if nothing helps you can compile a build that doesn't include sound support
13:51 Kalabasa How do I get the entity name of an entity?
13:53 turtleman_ joined #minetest
13:58 Kalabasa Hm. get_entity_name() is deprecated.
13:58 Kalabasa What's the new way
13:59 T4im joined #minetest
13:59 Kalabasa Agh whatever. I'm using get_entity_name()
14:00 Kalabasa Which doesn't work
14:05 diemartin Kalabasa, obj:get_luaentity().name
14:05 Kalabasa Ok, thanks.
14:05 Kalabasa class properties aren't in the lua api documentation. only methods...
14:07 diemartin they are here: https://github.com/minetest/minetes​t/blob/master/doc/lua_api.txt#L2735
14:07 diemartin but `name` is not listed...

15:31 sfan5 niebieski: pastebin there error
15:31 sfan5 Neolink_: what else does it say?
15:31 VanessaE Neolink_: outdated Minetest and outdated mod, and badly named mod.
15:32 niebieski sfan5, http://pastebin.com/Vmwvz5pV
15:33 sfan5 yup
15:33 sfan5 niebieski: libsnappy on ubuntu is broken
15:33 sfan5 niebieski: on 12.04 at least
15:33 VanessaE Neolink_: it should just be called "nature".
15:33 niebieski sfan5, Alright.
15:37 sfan5 niebieski: either build with leveldb disabled (-DENABLE_LEVELDB=0) or uninstall leveldb, download https://sfan5.pf-control.de/l​ibleveldb-1.18-ubuntu12.04.7z and extract it into /usr/
15:38 VanessaE Neolink_: you should consider the plantlife modpack instead.
15:38 VanessaE the old ature mod is badly outdated
15:38 VanessaE nature*

19:58 twoelk was playing on a server and the blocks above me were not loading
19:59 twoelk but when I dug som gravel the whole column would be calculated correctly
19:59 twoelk so that all not loaded gravel appeared when needing to fall
20:01 twoelk thus I could mine a stack of ten when only three where shown at any time

23:07 est31 is there any lua function to determine the size of some text?
23:08 acerspyro y = ax + b
23:09 est31 that was a joke too, wasn't it?
23:13 acerspyro You thought I was serious?
23:18 est31 no
23:18 est31 :D
23:20 est31 I'm just asking, as the error handler from the main menu is very ugly with long lua errors: https://github.com/minetest/minetest​/blob/master/builtin/fstk/ui.lua#L62

23:53 crazyR has anyone got a bash script that would make a map in 4 sections then merge the 4 sections into one...
23:54 acerspyro A bash script? Can a bash script do that?
23:54 crazyR i presume os. it would run the mapper 4 times with the diffent geometries then use image magik or somethihng to merge the images
23:54 crazyR *presume so
