I've just bought Voxatron and it looks really cool, but I can't launch either the vox or vox-dyn apps, i have no problem with the pico 8 ones
and yes i have set them to allow to run as exe

Tells me there is no application that can run 'shared library' files

i can run the windows installer on wine and use it fine but i would prefer to use the native version meant for linux

How are you running voxatron, and what is the exact error message you get?

I am on Debian. I unzipped the zip file, made the files executable ('chmod +x vox vox_dyn'), then I can run them ('./vox_dyn', or a shortcut from a directory that’s on PATH).

@merwok , I extract the files, right click the vox and vox_dyn files and change their permissions to allow run as a program, i then launch vox or vox_dyn and get this message "Could not display Vox
There is no application installed for "shared libraries" files. Do you want to search for an application to open this file?"

I have to launch it from a terminal i just found out

I checked again and it’s not you!

pico8 and pico8_dyn are executables, but vox and vox_dyn are shared libraries! They can be launched from a terminal but not by clicking in a graphical file explorer.

Can you move your post to the bugs category so that @zep sees it?

thanks for looking into it @merwok, I've changed it into the bugs area aswell
