How to install PoseidonFB on linux

Post by Tolo68 »

Hello to all the forum.

Little by little I want to use Linux, one of the applications I want to install is PoseidonFB
I have entered the web and for linux I see a file .AppImage

I use Linux Mint and Zorin OS.

Can someone explain to me what programs I must have, to install this type of files .AppImage , and how they are used.

I can use the Windows one with Wine, but the intellisense or autocompletion window is not placed where it should.

Thank you very much to all.

It is not an installation file. Just make it executable and run it from the terminal. e.g.
./poseidonFB.AppImage
note the dot-slash

AppImage is like a portable app on Windows. Just double click it and enjoy. On Linux you have to do an extra step to set as executable, either via your file manager or the terminal with chmod +x.

POSEIDON is a gradle project which means (hopefully, anyway) that the library management and building are taken care of automatically.

On linux/mac you should be able to simply call:

Code: Select all

./gradlew run
in the POSEIDON directory to start the program. upsers
