Fedora 27 : lua programming with torch and love 2d.

The Lua programming language is a good programming tool to start and test your programming skills.
Lately, the capabilities of computers and computer networks have increased exponentially.
The programming language allows the user simple programming possibilities with essential advantages.
I will illustrate some programs and frameworks that may be of special interest to you:
  • Wireshark has an embedded Lua interpreter and you can be used to write dissectors (to decode packet data), post-dissectors and taps;
  • Torch is a scientific computing framework with wide support for machine learning algorithms;
  • Love 2D is a framework for making 2D games for windows, linux and android;
Today I start with install lua , torch and love 2D.
This work very well. If you use root accont then love command will work only with display SDL. This means you have to use a normal user, not a root user.
I used dnf install tool for lua and love 2d and github for torch.
The result can be seen in the following screenshots:
