at least for ubuntu 13.01 and some other versions, i think it would be very helpful for users new to ubuntu linux if you were to change the readme file, or at least the on-site instructions. there was no mention that libglut3 was required to run Foldit. "sudo apt-get intstall libglut3" will not work for some reason, but here's a link that will allow it to be downloaded from the software center. http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/all/libglut3-dev/download
i just love this game, and it was really frustrating when i switched from windows7 to ubuntu 13.01 and it took me days to figure out how to install it (i had a baby and haven't played for almost a year). i just thought that a quick edit to the readme file might save others from going through all that.
thank you for your time,
