In my limited experience, and I tried several times, with different distros.
Installing axoloti’s client on linux is an endless bag of pain and frustration. Specially on 32bits. Unless you use an archaic distro.
My best solution was to dual boot, and have just one windows 7 32bit install just for axoloti. Hate windows, would love to use axo under linux. But the dependency on a deprecated jdk, the lack of a proper pack, makes it too much difficult and troublesome to install.
I love the axoloti once programmed and stashed into m rig.
But, oh boy, I hate the editor with a fiery passion.
