Install Latest Corona SDK on Linux Peppermint OS 5

I want to learn create game for my daughter since she like to play game in her Acer Tablet. I don’t know much about programming for mobile phone nor tablet but I’ll learn.

After dig for internet I decide to use Corona SDK but the problem came since I use Peppermint OS 5 that not supported.

I try Wine way and document the process here for my own reference. Might be useful for others.

Wine version

$ wine --version
wine-1.6.2

Checking cmd command from wine

$ wine cmd
Wine CMD Version 5.1.2600 (1.6.2)

Z:\home\alamsyah>c:

Great. Wine working fine.

Corona SDK

Download latest version for Windows

I got corona sdk 2014.2511

corona_sdk_2014.2511

Install it

$ wine start CoronaSDK-2014.2511.msi

I got error message :

fixme:exec:SHELL_execute flags ignored: 0x00000100
fixme:storage:create_storagefile Storage share mode not implemented.
fixme:msi:ITERATE_CreateShortcuts poorly handled shortcut format, advertised shortcut

but I ignore it.

Follow the screen to get corona sdk installed.

Run Corona SDK

Menu -> Programs -> Corona SDK -> Corona Simulator

corona_sdk_simulator

Try to compile (build for Android)

Got error message

corona_sdk_x86

Well, time for JDK.

Java Development Kit

According this docs I need JDK 7

corona_sdk_jdk7_64bit

Install this version also not work.

corona_jdk6_32bit

I skip this JDK problem as I still able to code and see it from simulator.

Well, time for continue learning 🙂

Update :

I use ZeroBrane Studio

$ wget -c https://download.zerobrane.com/ZeroBraneStudioEduPack-1.00-linux.sh 

$ chmod +x ZeroBraneStudioEduPack-1.00-linux.sh

$ ./ZeroBraneStudioEduPack-1.00-linux.sh
Verifying archive integrity… All good.
