Version 1.9.* on Ubuntu 19.04 Disco install problems

Hi everybody,

I'm trying to install the latest OpenTTD Version 1.9.1 on the latest ubuntu Release (19.04).

The *.deb Version of the game doesn't install because of unstisfied dependencies. This is the Output i get (sorry for the german):

Code: Select all

sudo apt install ./openttd-1.9.1-linux-ubuntu-bionic-amd64.deb 
Paketlisten werden gelesen... 0%
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.       
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
Hinweis: »openttd« wird an Stelle von »./openttd-1.9.1-linux-ubuntu-bionic-amd64.deb« gewählt.
Einige Pakete konnten nicht installiert werden. Das kann bedeuten, dass
Sie eine unmögliche Situation angefordert haben oder, wenn Sie die
Unstable-Distribution verwenden, dass einige erforderliche Pakete noch
nicht erstellt wurden oder Incoming noch nicht verlassen haben.
Die folgenden Informationen helfen Ihnen vielleicht, die Situation zu lösen:

Die folgenden Pakete haben unerfüllte Abhängigkeiten:
 openttd : Hängt ab von: libicu60 (>= 60.1-1~) ist aber nicht installierbar
           Hängt ab von: libiculx60 (>= 60.1-1~) ist aber nicht installierbar
           Empfiehlt: openttd-opengfx soll aber nicht installiert werden
E: Probleme können nicht korrigiert werden, Sie haben zurückgehaltene defekte Pakete.
With Ubuntu 19.04 i can't install the old libicu60 library. I installed libicu63, libicu64 and libicu-dev but that did nothing.

I hope somebody has experience with that kind of problem.

Ps.: Is there a reason, why OpenTTD on Ubuntu is only available in Version 1.8.0?

Our builds are for Ubuntu 16.04 or 18.04. You will need to compile OpenTTD yourself to install on 19.04.

Ubuntu packages are controlled by Ubuntu, not OpenTTD. However, it is most likely that Ubuntu 19.04 was already frozen by the time OpenTTD 1.9.x was released.

Thanks for your reply! I will try to do exactly that.

we've had that problem pretty much every year, that ubuntu 1x.04 doesn't contain openttd 1.x

Will Ubuntu 19.04 be supported soon?

I have no idea how this works, but it is possible to set up a PPA for OpenTTD? I see there are some PPA's already, but they're not up to date: https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+ppas?name ... nactive=on
