I am an old Windows guy trying to become a Linux guy. Im moving all the design and prep software for my 3d printers from windows to Ubuntu. I am really struggling trying to figure out how to get Slic3r to run. I downloaded the tar from github for the 32 bit ubuntu, extracted it into a folder at ~/Programs/Slic3r. This created several directories, including the bin directory holding the executable. But for me, it will not execute. I suspect I have left out one or more steps but am to Ubuntu challenged to know what they are. I've tried to find things on the web that would instruct me, but they all seem to confuse me more than anything.
Two questions... Is there a simple straightforward set of instructions for installing and running Slic3r?
Is here a particular log that I should be looking at that might tell me what (does not) happen when I right click on the Slic3r executable and select run. Nothing happens as far as I can see.
As always, any help would be appreciated.
