View Full Version : [ubuntu] Ubuntu and Lua

December 16th, 2011, 08:31 PM
Hello i'm new to the
community and also to
ubuntu and the programing world.

A friend of mine recommended me
to learn to program with Lua 5.1.4.

And my problem is that
i don't know (and really have no idea)
how to install it onto my laptop.

So i was hoping someone
could help me with step by step
instructions on how to do so.

If anyone could help
me out I would be very thankfull.

(I have Ubuntu 11.10 64-bits installed by the way):)

I would start here


It looks like they have linux binaries available. They also have some documentation available as well. I have no personal experience with lua so I can't offer much more help than that.
