How to Install SuperTux 0.6.2 in Ubuntu:

For Ubuntu 18.04 and higher, SuperTux Snap package (runs in sandbox) can be installed directly from Ubuntu Software Center.

If you prefer Ubuntu .deb package, I’ve uploaded the packages into the unofficial PPA for Ubuntu 16.04, Ubuntu 18.04, Ubuntu 19.10, and Ubuntu 20.04.

1. Open terminal either from system application menu or by pressing Ctrl+Alt+T on keyboard. When it opens, run command to add the PPA:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/supertux

Type user password (no asterisk feedback) when it prompts and hit Enter to continue.

2. If an old version of the .deb package was installed, upgrade it via Software Updater:

or run commands to install Supertux 0.6.2:

sudo apt update && sudo apt install supertux


To remove the PPA, either go to Software & Updates -> Other Software or run command:

sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:ubuntuhandbook1/supertux

To remove the game, run command:

sudo apt remove --auto-remove supertux supertux-data
