I am very new to the whole world of coding so I apologize for the novice questions. I have tried starting the Pong assignment and I cannot for the life of me figure out how to open the Pong that I unzipped from the lesson in Love2d.

Like I mentioned before I am using Linux Mint 19.3 Cinnamon 4.4.8

All help appreciated, I look forward to having fun as this all makes more sense to me.

  • liblove0_0.10.2ppa1_amd64.deb
  • love_0.10.2ppa1_amd64.deb

from Love2D's website or Ubuntu's PPA.

After installing them you'll have the "love" command available. Just type love assignment0 to run the game or love . if you're already inside the assigment0 directory. I assume you can use the command line.

The source code is compatible with Love2D 0.10.2 but not with 11.x. It's not hard to fix but if you are new to the world of coding it's best to start with the exact same version.
