I have been fighting Ubuntu to install it every time something crashes Ubuntu. Right now I have Version 18.04-4, and I had to stumble across a program called Gdebi to help. It is in the Ubuuntu software index. I had to install it, then point it at the deb archive I wanted installed. In this case I left Fahclient's .deb and Fahcontrol's deb. in Downloads. Gdebi let me navigate to Downloads easily, and then choose what .deb I wanted. Fahclient came first--Gdebi had worked around the problems with fahclient s not popping up its configure window, and left fa
hclienrt recognizing it needed to run its first time configuring. If you mess up next with fahcontrol, and do not get a passkey, you will not get bonus points until you do get one and cut and paste it into the pas
skey entry places in fahcontrol-- there is room for the passkey to be pasted in twice in one of the tabs of fahcontrol.
I had folding going and accidentally lost part of it. I had to reinstall it, and in the current LTS version of Ubuntu, as well as I could figure out the software installer for Ubuntu by default is not set up to install folding. With Gdebi doing the install, it was in like Flynn.
I am now uising web control. It works on FAH for almost any FAH install.
