If i want to add an recipe to foldit, i get this message:
"Please run Foldit to add recipes to your cookbook."
But Foldit is running!
My system:
Ubuntu 9.10, Intel Q8300 , 6GB Ram
and I use Firefox 3.5.8 behind a proxy.

What am i doing wrong?

thanks,

Did you play online and have you been logged in to the foldit website at the same time?

yes, i did! When i played

yes, i did!
When i played under windows on another computer, everything is fine. From this i know how to import the recipes. But as soon as i use the ubuntu-machine, nothing relating to recipes is working. Opening the recipes menu leads to the recipes website. A click on the green button brings the error message.

Finally, I found a solution which seems to work.

I just copied the file "all.match" from the windows machine to the linux machine, and until now everything works fine.

problem on windows 7

the installer crashes near the end of install
configuration:
windows 7 home premium 32-bit
AMD phenom II X4 925 processor 2.80 GHz
4 GB ram installed (3.25GB available)

now it seems i have the same problem as original poster, could someone upload the all.match file somewhere with directions where to put it exactly?

I have a file called

I have a file called all.macro in my program files\foldit folder. It looks like this is where most of the program data is stored. The main executable is in program files (x86)\foldit. I am wondering if this is part of the issue.

Oh, and I also can't download recipes.

suggestion

maybe making it possible to view all scripts as plaintext on the site could solve this problem, we would be able to copy/paste the scripts.

Destrictor is right.
This is why I always give plain text or an extra link to the text, but the recipe site should do it automatically.
Moreover, it's time to have those recipes stored in an extra folder with single files instead of grabbing them out of the all.macro-file.

Has anyone figured out why we can't load recipies from the main site? I just started playing and i wanted to try out a few of the public recipies. I've tried to download using both Internet Explorer and Chrome and i get the message saying that i need to have Foldit running. I do have it running but it doesn't seem to detect it. I'm using Windows Vista if that means anything. Thanks.

Good point, it does not.
All three (Global, group, puzzle) are "trying to connect" or greyed out. Any idea why?

probably. Or some similar software.
IRC need to be connected to get recipes.

firewall

That may be the problem.
Even mIRC does not work.

I have no firewall installed. Ergo,it's the win firewall or intenet safety settings.
I cannot change the winfirewall, but I can add exceptions.
I already added foldit as an exception and allowed for echo etc., but to no avail.
I can also add exception ports
What are the ports used by the foldit softrware, and is it UDP?
Whatelse do I have to "except".

thx.

2 pcs

Alternatively, I could run foldint on a second PC, get the cookbook file, and copy it manually to the other machine. Is that possible? If so, what is the folder and file the cookbook programming is saved in?

Yes.

Just copy all.macro file after you close client.
