I'm running a Linux desktop at home, and thought, wouldn't it be nice to put a server on here for my kids to use, so they could get into a world at any time, and not rely on someone else's device to be on for them to be in the same world. I find Pocket Mine, and it's main page says, just check a few dependencies, which I thought I did, and download it's package using "wget" and then "start[.sh]" it, and put in a few parameters, and your there. I do all that, it acts like it worked, but it's not showing up on the MCPE app. I'm like, what's wrong. I go through my system making sure nothing is stopping me, but then I find this forum, and start reading about downloading additional things and I'm like, where's the official instructions on this? I can't find them, so I stumble through a few posts and finally do the following to get it working (which I hope helps someone else new to Pocket Mine with getting their server going): wget -q -O - http://get.pocketmine.net/ | bash ./start.sh Can't find php7 (we'll duh, you came with php5 instead). vi ./start.sh [replace php7 with php5] ./start.sh [answer questions, seems to be up and running, but find it doesn't actually work] stop [do a bunch of other pointless stuff that get's me nowhere] wget -q -O PocketMine-MP.phar https://bintray.com/artifact/download/pocketmine/PocketMine/PocketMine-MP_1.6dev-8_a6cd526e_API-2.0.0.phar [Nope, out-dated post, didn't work - more digging around to find the right one] wget -q -O PocketMine-MP.phar https://bintray.com/artifact/download/pocketmine/PocketMine/PocketMine-MP_1.6dev-23_6ba0abf5_API-2.0.0.phar [That works - probably won't in the near future - , but now it's complaining about wanting php7 again] [more searching, and then... O, look and compile script...] wget -q -O complie.sh https://raw.githubusercontent.com/PocketMine/php-build-scripts/master/compile.sh sudo ./complie.sh [wants autoconf - thought I already had it, but ok] sudo apt-get install autoconf sudo ./complie.sh [wants libtool - again thought... well what ever...] sudo apt-get install libtool sudo ./complie.sh [yeah, ok bison] sudo apt-get install bison sudo ./complie.sh [g++?] sudo apt-get install g++ sudo ./complie.sh [Hey it did a bunch of stuff...] ./start.sh And now it works! If I had a better idea of what all I actually did, and what actually worked and what was unnecessary, I'd put it into a more formal document on how to get PocketMine to work on an Ubuntu 14.04 desktop, but it's late and I need to go to bed now. Thanks, - Spaldam.com P.S. now to figure out how to get my MCPE world, that my kids love so much, imported into the server. The instructions I found are probably out of date as they don't seem to work.
