Version 2.3
« on: March 24, 2009, 11:42:22 pm »

Is it possible to upgrade from 2.2.1 to 2.3 or is it a fresh install?

Thanks

It is a fresh install. You can even have both on your hdd.

It's thicko question time again...

How do i get it, please? The only links i can find are on sourceforge, they start with 'deb' and they're not clickable. Using Ubuntu 8.10/Gnome

I would propose that you check out the latest trunk from SVN and then compile it on your own machine. How to do that, you will find on the Wiki.

Just to clarify: 2.3 is NOT released yet. That's why there are no official packages.

(You can use dev-packages made by players/contributors, but prepare for bugs and crashes.)

those URLs starting with deb...  are repositories. (like the ones bundled with ubuntu that you access through synaptic)

you can add them under system->systemsettings->paketsources / repositories  (or something like that I'm not sure about the english wording)
The second tab should be called third party something there you can add them. Then you can choose the package in synaptic.

Customary warning: third party repositories can endanger you system, because they might contain viruses disguised as system updates.

Those repositories should be trustworthy though.
