    Hi,

    K, first of all, that's a good game and I'm quite pleased with it. Keep up the
    good work! =)

    This may seem like a silly question, but how do I update the game? I installed
    it on oneiric via the ubuntu software center. I got version 9.1. Now I'd like
    to install the latest version, but I'm not sure how I should proceed. I
    downloaded it, but I don't know where it's installed on my machine. Where's
    the default folder? Is there a way to add a link to the repositary or what not
    so that it would update automatically?

    Anyway, thanks for helping me! =D

    Hi!
    There is no additional repository with new version. But you can download
    source code tarball and build it manually.You need libSDL and libGL developer
    libararies to build the project (use apt-get install... to get it). And then:
    ./configure && make && make install.

    Up: ...and libpng library.

    It would be handy though if you could somehow plug the updates in with yjr
    ubuntu software center, which does that automatically. I run dual boot systems
    with Windows and Ubuntu as well. Tried following the instructions in the
    download but have been unable to make it work properly (probably my lack of
    experience with this under Linux). That's why all my themes were designed in
    Windows.

    Anyway, if you did have the updates linked (and they must have got the details
    for 0.9.1 somehow) then it would install the updates automatically. Surely
    this would increase the chances of Pipewalker becoming really popular. :)

    Ok, I'll see what I can do with that.
    Thanks! =)
