Welcome Linux Users!
As if we'd leave you out... ;)
Here's how to run Charity Engine on Linux:
- Create an account here at charityengine.com, but delete whatever installer it sends you on registration, Mac or Win. It won't work on Linux anyway.
- Get the latest version of BOINC from UC Berkeley instead:
(Some PCs use a "package manager", "software center", etc. Just tell it you want to download and install BOINC from that link.)
- After you install, find "Use account manager..." in the Tools menu and enter the name of this website: https://www.charityengine.com. (*If you don't see the Tools menu, be sure to switch to "Advanced View", in the View menu)
- Enter the email address and password for the account you created here at Charity Engine and that's it, you're done!
(*Important note:"Attach To Project" does not work. If you accidentally start that instead, just cancel it.)
