Hi there,

just want to give feedback:

- the linux/Readme only tells you to install xclip
- you could add that one needs to add execution permissions to execute the Folfit/Foldit file with sudo chmod a+x Foldit/Foldit
- on Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop (default linux distribution of most people) I get the following error when I try to execute the file afterwards with ./Foldit: "Foldit Error: Could not load library: libglut.so.3: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
- this solves it: sudo apt install freeglut3


You can close this ticket if you already have this info on the way towards the Readme

Thanks for the feedback!

We may be able to distribute freeglut3 with Foldit in the future, but for the time being we can definitely add that info to the Linux README file!
