Linux version won't launch

Different Linux distributions update their included supporting libraries at different times. A more "bleeding-edge" distro will often have more recent libraries while a more "stable" distro might stick conservatively to older library versions.

Generally speaking, Fade In is built on what is hoped to be a good, representative "standard" set of libraries. But there can be launching issues if it can't find linked-to library versions.

One thing you can do is this:

1. Start Fade In from a command line. It should tell you there if it is failing to find a particular library version.

2. Install that (probably older) library version alongside the newer version shipped with your distro. The Linux library versioning system generally makes this quite straightforward. (Although you may have to search for how to find and install legacy library versions for your system.)
