Well,

Isn't my world small? I'm a Biochemist that sort of took on a role that let me to 80+ countries around the world. I've worked for the big Rx/Dx companies. Plus, a lot of smaller guys.

I can spell PCR, and have met Kary Mullis, and seen 2 other Nobel guys speak.

I've grown used to computing, it took a while. LOL! Like learning Linux, and opensource has been a pleasure.

What can I do for you over here?

Just about to drop into the sub 7000 teams in the world, and all this with a 6 man team. Come on you Mintyites join the team! Then we can climb even higher up the rankings. Very encouraging for a team that only started on June 14th, barely 3 months ago! We need more members if we are to continue this meteoric rise. Meanwhile congrats to the present members and keep up the relentless folding. :D

I am new to linux and am expecting to have my thinkpad on Tuesday. I was hoping for today but no such luck. Anywa - I am in if someone is willing to walk me through the command line stuff i need to get it working. I looked at that befopre when i first dabbled in linux and there were instructions that I just could not follow for linux to get it all happening.

as a team is there any stipulation as to which project you choose or anyone is OK?

Thank you.

ok assuming you downloaded FAH504-Linux.exe

ok...
To use this program, make sure that you can execute it (chmod +x FAH5-Linux.exe) and then run it ./FAH5-Linux.exe

basically all you have to do.

but! run "./FAH504-Linux.exe -configonly" then you can input your name, team number, etc. Unless you're going to be running 2 clients or want to crunch heavier work units you can just hit enter to everything after those two.

our team is: 76140

then just type "./FAH504-Linux.exe" and you should be good to go. I use the " -configonly" tag in case I forgot something I don't want to have to hit ctrl+c and run it again you know...but whatever.

I don't have mine set to start at system boot but you probably could, I haven't really bothered to look how...

If I missed something or whatever just ask.

To autorun at startup

Add
Code: Select all
/home/USERNAME/foldingathome/folding start
as a new startup program to sessions (found under preferences in main menu).

That should get it going at boot.

ok tried according to your video - had an issue said it was running in the background already...
I do not know command line I cannot see what the heck is going on....I cannot regulate anything.so I guess I am acrewed.

How do I delete this from running and delete this from my laptop?

I do not think this is a good idea afterall - esp since I do not know what you guys know and I cannot have this running all the time - just when i am not using the laptop.

This is way too complex and fuzzy for my likings.

How do I delete all of this from my computer.

sorry but I really tried.

I hate to have to redo my system.

Ok - thanks - But in Linux isn't there some formal way of deleting this application that you already loaded/installed? just deleting it does not seem to do it, does it?
