Installing Add-Ons

SuperTuxKart is able to install or uninstall add-ons on its own. This page includes details about that process, and instructions on how to install or remove add-ons either in-game or manually.

The Add-On Storage Folder

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

On Windows:

  •  %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\supertuxkart\addons\

On Linux:

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

On Mac OS X:

  • (somebody who knows this, fill it in)


Within this folder, the following files and subdirectories exist:

  • icons/, karts/, tmp/, tracks/, addons.xml, addons_installed.xml, news.xml

As you would expect, the karts and tracks folders contain the add-on kart and track directories, respectively.
