FamilySearchIndexing - 250 names completed & Linux

From: kate <

DearMYRTLE,
I signed up to volunteer yesterday, and I indexed 250 names. Today I can't get on. We use Linux at home, so I'm guessing that's part of my problem [that perhaps] they don't support Linux, but I was able to do it yesterday, but not today. Do you know anyone who might have experience with this?

DearKATE,
BRAVO!!!! You did some 250 names yesterday! WOW! I did 100 each of the past two days. I get sloppy after that amount and don't trust my work or my eyesight.

For troubleshooting problems with FamilySearchIndexing go to:

From this website under "Computer Requirements" we read about Linux users: "Although Linux is not a fully supported platform, we do have many users who are successfully using FamilySearch Indexing on Linux. Users who have the following minimum system requirements seem to have very few problems... "

For Windows, MAC and Linux users see:

COMPUTER REQUIREMENTS

It might just be a fluke today that will work fine tomorrow. Also try rebooting and going in fresh.

Happy family tree climbing!
Myrt :)
