How to Unlock Everything In SuperTuxKart Under Ubuntu/Linux Mint

In this page, we will show you a trick that allows to unlock everything (tracks, trophies, etc.) in SuperTuxKart, a popular racing game with very attractive graphics and enjoyable go-kart races having similarities to classic Mario Kart of Nintendo.

If you haven't already installed the game under Ubuntu/Linux Mint, then do with the following commands from the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:stk/daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install supertuxkart

To unlock all circuits under Ubuntu 12.10/12.04/11.04, run this command:

gedit ~/.config/supertuxkart/challenges.xml

For Linux Mint 13 or older, run this command:

pluma ~/.config/supertuxkart/challenges.xml

Replace now all lines containing the word "false" to "true":

After saving the file, open the game to enjoy all game levels!

Arch Linux 2012.08.04

Pierre Schmitz has announced the availability of a new installation CD/USB image for Arch Linux, version 2012.08.04: "The August snapshot of our live and install media comes with updated packages and the following changes on top of the previous iso image: GRUB 2.00 instead of the legacy 0.9 version is available; the installation guide can be found at /root/install.txt; ZSH with Grml's configuration is used as interactive shell to provide a user friendly and more convenient environment, this includes completion support for pacstrap, arch-chroot, pacman and most other tools; the network daemon, which will automatically setup your network if DHCP is available, is started by default. Note that all these changes only affect the live system and not the base system you install using pacstrap." Here is the brief release announcement.
