You have to download the source code and compile it. Here are some instructions:

It's easy but the Terminal has to keep opened ...

What do I do with the github file?

First open a terminal. It will looks like this :
Then put these commands:
sudo apt install git make build-essential libsdl2-dev git clone https://github.com/timoinutilis/lowres-nx.git cd lowres-nx/platform/LowRes\ NX\ Linux/ make ./output/LowResNX
And LowRes NX will start up :3
DONT CLOSE THE TERMINAL ELSE LOWRES WILL ALSO CLOSE glad i can help :3

Do I have to run this command every time I open lowers or is there a way to make a shortcut or something?

Once the LowResNX in output is built, you can run it directly. Everything until “make” is for downloading and compiling, it’s only needed the first time.

is there a way i can make it not ask if i want to run a executable file every time i open it?
Timo 2021-02-19 20:02
I don’t know anything about Linux really :/

Okay thanks :)

Yes if you know .sh scripting ...
It you want i can make you one ?!
Timo 2021-02-20 14:46
You have to create a script for every executable??
G-9 2021-02-20 19:18 (Edited)
Actually if you don't want to run the command... yes.
Maybe there's a way to make it... more a GUI application? idk i just learned sh commands not Linux ;D

I have no clue what that is :P lol

It really depend on your linux distribution but most of the time you have a shortcut to create a "Desktop Launcher "or a shortcut and then you can give it the path to your executable and an icon. Maybe try right clicking on the executable or directly on the desktop. Hope that helps ;-)
