Installing Add-Ons

    Every officially approved Add-On can be easily installed using the in-game Add-On-Manager. But sometimes it’s necessary to install or remove a track, kart or arena manually. This pages tries to provide the necessary information:


    The Add-On Storage Folder

    Depending on what system you are using, add-ons are installed in one of the following folders:

    On Windows:

    • %APPDATA%\supertuxkart\addons

    On Linux:

    • ~/.local/share/supertuxkart/addons
    • /usr/share/games/supertuxkart/data/tracks (for older STK versions)

    On Mac OS X:

    • ~/Library/Application Support/SuperTuxKart/Addons

    Installing and Removing

    Within this folder, the following files and subdirectories exist: icons, karts, tmp, tracks, addons.xml, addons_installed.xml, news.xml

    To install an Add-on, simply copy the whole folder with the Add-On to the correspondig subdirectory. Note that Arenas go in the track folder because they are technically tracks.

    Uninstalling is done by removing that folder.

    Additionally, /installaddon and /uninstalladdon can be used in networking lobby to install or uninstall Add-ons.
