Thank you very much for the hint! Unfortunately no Lua 5.3 in the
repositories of Ubuntu 12.04 (the version I'm currently using). But I
installed it manually from and then I gave
the command:

sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/luac
lua-compiler /usr/bin/luac5.3 121

(121 is the priority of Lua5.2 + 1)

Problem solved!
