Error installing on Ubuntu 18

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm trying to install openrct2 on Ubuntu 18.04 (bionic beaver) from the apt repository as described here: https://openrct2.org/quickstart/install/linux/debian-ubuntu-mint and I keep getting this error when I add the repository:

E: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/openrct2/master/ubuntu bionic Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Updating from such a repository can't be done securely, and is therefore disabled by default.

By inspecting /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openrct2-ubuntu-master-bionic.list I can see that the repository is added as follows:

deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/openrct2/master/ubuntu bionic main

By opening that link in a web browser, I can see that under "dists" there is no directory for bionic! Is Ubuntu 18.04 not supported? Is it safe to change the content of /etc/apt/sources.list.d/openrct2-ubuntu-master-bionic.list to use an older version of ubuntu (e.g trusty)?


Ps. Thanks for this open source effort! I used to play RCT2 alot as a kid, and I'm really looking forward to trying this implementation.
