Support for Linux dropped ?

Support for Linux dropped ?
In the Downloads page there used to be three icons, now the Linux Based one is just an empty spot.

Does that mean linux based systems will no longer be supported ? Based on the various issues that haven't been answered in the later half of 2019, it looks like that's what is happening.

The download link for linux distributions is still available, but AFAIK only when going at the Home page with default redirection (Mixed doesn't redirect to the correct paragraph, since it gives a link only to the Downloads page which doesn't mention linux).

The question i'm asking to the support in this thread is ; Is linux support dropped ? If no, then I hope you can figure out the latest issues even as to provide basic features like main stats tracking.

Yes, the download for the Linux client has been removed for now. Due to several changes in several distros, the client is unable to run on ~80% of the systems of people who try it. A few volunteers have stepped up to see about getting it running universally on every/most distros, but that will take a while. In the mean time, there's not much we can do.

That's really sad. What about a flatpak or a snap package?

Hopefully that's in the cards. An super simple install on linux would be fantastic!

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
Was waiting for Ubuntu 20.04 to upgrade my PC and when Kubuntu finally dropped yesterday, I installed the new SSD and went with it. Sadly I wasn't able to get the dependencies yet.
It made me thing though, if it might be possible to get it running via docker, but my docker-fu might be well too humble for that.
I guess network monitoring will not work, but "going classic" with keys and clicks at least?
Might try tonight with copying over the old ".so"s from the old SSD where I ran Xubuntu 18.04.

wish me luck! Smile

docker doesn't seem like a good idea at first (how to get the stats?), but if you have a trick that's interesting! good luck to you Smile

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
Didn't try the docker approach, came as far as the missing AES functions error message with copying old versions of QT libs over to the new system, into a separate directory and setting a lib-path system variable just for whatpulse to that directory...

RE: Support for Linux dropped ?
I'm about to retire my MacBook for a new Linux system, so I'll be looking forward to seeing the return. I'll gladly do what I can to help get Linux support up and running again. Flatpak/AppImage I feel will be the best way to handle it, as it sounds like you're having dependency issues more than anything
