I just got a Raspberry Pi and I installed Löve 2D 0.8.0 on it.
(I'm using the Raspbian distro and I used the "apt-get" command).

Sadly, even if the installation was a succes, I can't run any game without having this error :

Code: Select all

pi@[hostname] ~ $ love alesan99s-entities_12.0.love
Could not set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual
Could not set video mode: Couldn't find matching GLX visual
post-processing shaders not supported
(Yes, I used Alesian99's entities)

Is there a way to make the games work ?
I looked on the forums of LÖVE 2D and Google too, but I found nothing.

I'm guessing Love can't use GLX, because the Pi support only GL ES,so Löve isn't compatible with Pies, I think. It's weird that Löve is in the Raspbian repos, though.
Edit : Try to compile Löve yourself. It look like some people on the love forum CAN run love on, their pi.

LÖVE 0.8.0 won't work on the Raspberry Pi for several reasons, including lack of support in SDL (LÖVE 0.8.0 relies on an older version of SDL) and lack of an OpenGL ES backend in LÖVE, which the Raspberry Pi requires for hardware-accelerated rendering.

This branch of LÖVE 0.9.1 (download) will run on the Raspberry Pi, as long as you get the most recent version of SDL2 and the other dependencies required to run LÖVE, and make sure to do the proper steps when building LÖVE.

LÖVE 0.9 isn't backwards-compatible with games written for LÖVE 0.8.0, though.

I know, and this is a bit disappointing, because I wanted to play (and mod) Mari0 everywhere (a sweet alternative to the Android version suggestion).

Anyway,

Download the link slime gave you : https://bitbucket.org/bartbes/love-expe ... ES.tar.bz2
Then decompress the folder, and to compile Löve

Code: Select all

cd [The folder with extra/platform/src in it]
platform/unix/automagic
./configure
make

And then, Löve should get compiled.
If you want to install it, uninstall Löve 0.8.0, then type

Code: Select all

sudo make install

into the terminal, type your password and It should get installed.

And I did uninstalled LÖVE 0.8.0

Edit:
It did work after I (manually) added sdl2.m4.

The Mari0 SE beta runs on LÖVE 0.9.

I'm talking about Mari0, not Mari0 SE.

And I'm telling you that you can play Mari0 using LÖVE 0.9 if you use the SE beta...

I found something that is whay I wanted. I just have to install "libgl1-mesa-swx11".

EDIT : It's really slow, but it works.
