As promised, here is the Ubuntu Desktop installation guide. The basic installation is [post=1037125470]HERE (Post #2)[/post]. Everything else is optional. [post=1037125472]BFS Installation (Post #3)[/post] is OBSOLETE. There is no reason to install BFS for Folding@home on any system configuration. [post=1037125476]tear's Langouste Installation (Post #5)[/post] is still practical, especially if you have a slower internet connection. It is now part of the fahinstall script as well. [post=1037125478]Other tweaks and add-ons (Post #6)[/post] may or may not be useful to you. The basic install adds screen and ssh by default. [post=1037125479]HFM Installation (Post #7)[/post] can be useful if you want HFM running on a Linux machine for some reason. It is not necessary to fold in Linux. NOTE: The Linux FAH client is 64 bit, meaning the OS needs to be a 64 bit version as well. You cannot fold with a 32 bit Linux install. NOTE: We are only supporting the v6.34 console client. We strongly recommend that you do not use the v7 client. If you do, we will not be able to help you much with any issues. Machine configuration recommendations (UPDATED 9/22/2013) We recommend the basic install [post=1037125470]post #2[/post] for all systems. Please PM me with questions/suggestions/corrections.
