Hi,

It seems that there isn't any release of HW 1.0 for Ubuntu 18 LTS (supported by canonical until 2023)

"source /etc/lsb-release; sudo apt-get install hedgewars/"$DISTRIB_CODENAME"-backports"

... doesn't work for "Bionic" and there's no .deb in this page : https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/hedgewars

That seems surprising, since HW 1.0 is the first version that the development team wanted to "share with a wider audience".

Is there a solution to install hedgewars without updating my (old) laptop?

Thank You,

FFB

I'll ask Locutus, he's the debian/ubuntu maintainer, and AFAIK he released 1.0 for all maintained releases within a couple of days of 1.0 release.

Locutus says it's in his PPA
https://launchpad.net/~costamagnagianfranco/+archive/ubuntu/hedgewars/+packages

But that he could also do something official.

Oh, and he just filed this.
