Welcome Linux Users!

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.)
