Install Minetest client on Ubuntu

Most distribution packages are a bit old, so I highly recommend using the PPA (Personal Package Archive) repository.

In my case, I experienced localization problems, especially with French special or extended characters.
All fixed with the PPA version. Here is how to install:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:minetestdevs/stable
sudo apt update
sudo apt install minetest

At the time of this writing, this will install the version 5.4.1-ppa0, about 40MB.

Update: unfortunately the ubuntu 21.10 is not supported, we might have to wait for the Ubuntu 22.04 to be able to use this method again…
