Super Tux Kart is a fun game that my son and I have gotten into. It has recently improved quite a lot, and we have enjoyed playing it.
But, just recently, I found that it crashes a lot. It’s not predicable, it will either freeze the X display or it will just close in the middle of a race.
So, I decided to do a quick Google search to see if there was a solution out. I can’t find the article now, but something suggested that maybe it was a bug that was already fixed. I found I had version 0.7, and version 0.8 was available.
On the download page, it suggested a repository. So, I installed this repository:
sudo add-apt-repository http://ppa.launchpad.net/stk/dev/ubuntu
To get it to install, I ran the regular apt-get update…
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade
After that, I had the 0.8 version. In addition, the crashes seem to have gone away, so far.
