mulitplayer lobby empty?

Recommended Posts

That's strange indeed. Did you, after adding the ppa run:

$ sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

I did run update but not "upgrade".

Moreover, if the package is out of date, it should be listed in the update manager right ? There are no available updates for 0ad either

Upgrade is what would actually update the package to use the latest version.

That I don't know. Maybe the update manager only looks at non-ppa sources.

`sudo apt install 0ad` after `sudo apt update`

upgrade might use the priority list and pick the one in universe or backports or something.

This is what I did.

Will try to update again and see.

Well, the official version in the repository is alpha 22.
But on flatpak, there appears to be a newer version; Although the version number is not specified in the software manager, i suspect the version is 23. However, I tried installing this on another PC and I still do not see any players in the lobby.

I'm not sure what else to try.

There is actually a third version, that's on flat pack, and should be on the PPA, and any ubuntu with up to date packages.

22 Venustas

23 KenWood

23.1 Re-Release KenWood

Yay..!
Finally got it working.
Somehow, the repository hadn't gotten added and the older version of 0AD which was in the official ubuntu repositories had been installed. 
I Should have stopped to check that first.
Thanks for all the help (and sorry for wasting your time. ;) )

hmm.. I'm actually on linux mint. Maybe that's the problem..
but as far as I know, mint and Ubuntu use the same repositories.
and anyway, since I added the repository I mentioned above, this shouldn't be a problem, right?

No it should not be an issue. Have you tried uninstalling everything, adding the ppa, running apt-get update and upgrade, then installing 0ad?
