Got a bug report.  I'm running Ubuntu 18.04.4 and tried to run the demo free version.  However, there wasn't any .sh file to run so after looking up some posts I saw that you're supposed to run the "Mannequin" file.  It is listed as Exacute as program in the properties.  Alright, so I tried to execute it.  It came up with an error, "Could not display "mannequin"  There is no application installed for "shared library files." Do you want to search for an application to open this file?"  

Any suggestions on what's wrong?


About 20 minutes later:

After reading on the Itch.io app, which I didn't know even existed until now, in this community I tried using the app.  I was able to download the app and run it fine, so I tried downloading Mannequin through the app.  I remembered reading something about it being the preferred method of installing and running.  So, after installing it, wouldn't you know it ran just fine?  I'm a Linux only user now, I've ditched Windows for good, so apparently it will only run through the Itch.io app and not on it's own apart from the app??  Anyway, I really like it and plan to buy it once it's on sale on steam.  Happy it works because this is something that I really needed.  Wow just look at those colors of the demo girl would you?  LoL

Hello! Sorry for the confusion and glad that it cleared up for you. Just as an additional info, here is our reply to previous question regarding running on Linux: https://itch.io/t/692620/linux-help-mannequin

Using the itch.io desktop app is always the preferred way, though, since there is no self-updater built into Mannequin and we rely on itch.io platform (and Steam, when the corresponding version releases there) for managing updates.

Wonderful character there! Hopefully you'll find our 'Advanced' color option useful too; it will surely add more flexibility to match your entire game / artwork color style!
