i dont know how to run mari0.
i have ubuntu 13.04.
i downloaded mari0-source.zip, and mari0-linux.zip. i extracted them into my folders in my pc.
i dont know what to do next.
i read the forum so i therefore tried to use the commands for the terminal, one by one:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bartbes/love-unstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install love-unstable
i managed to get a blue ball icon on my panel. when my cursor is put on this, it appers "waiting to install". so i am not sure whether it is installed or not. when i clicked on it, it opens, but it says - NO GAME.
i could not understand the following advice from the forum: "either right-click->open with and then type in "love-unstable" in the command line or run "$ love-unstable [mario-file-name].love" in the folder you have extracted the love file into."
i tried to open the "mari0_1.6.love zip file with LOVE but there was no such application offered in the list of the applications.
i am not skilled in IT nor in linux nor in games, it is just for my son.
