Installers for Ubuntu/Debian. Download the installer that corresponds to your CPU architecture. If you are unsure, you can find your machine’s architecture by running the following command in your Terminal.
$ dpkg-architecture -q DEB_BUILD_ARCH
Previous versions can be downloaded in the Releases Section of our GitHub page.
Installation files are provided in form of a deb file. deb files can be used on Ubuntu and Debian distributions. Installation for these systems should be as simple as opening the file with Software Center; however, if you run into issues you can also run the installation from the command line.
$ dpkg -i bin/MoloVol_debian_version.deb
Please note that for older versions we only provide the .deb file for arm64 CPU architectures. As such, it is possible that the installer will not work for you. In that case you could compile the application yourself by following this guide.
When attempting an installation you may get a warning about the package being Bad Quality. It is unclear why this happens, as the deb files are checked using Lintian before distribution. If you wish to install the package regardless you can do so using via the command line as described above.
Older Linux distributions may be using outdated libraries. If you cannot upgrade the library version your best chance is to compile the application yourself.
