When I launch Foldit on Debian 8.2 64 via terminal I got the following messages :

Cannot open local version file: version-binary.txt.
Foldit Error: The game has previously not started up correctly.
If this problem persists, please install the latest version.
Foldit Error: Could not load library: cmp-binary-00000000000000000000000000000000/ cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

For now I use the windows version with wine but that is disappointing.

Looking through old feedbacks for the same error message, one recurring suggestion is to make sure you are running foldit from the same directory it is installed in.

Here are some related feedbacks; maybe you can get some other ideas from them
