Plan B was to run the Configuration software on my old netbook using a portable Linux distro from a USB drive. I've tried 3 different versions: Knoppix (possibly too old), Lubuntu 16.04.3 and Puppy Linux: Slacko 6.3.0. In each case I can't get "AudioMoth-1.1.1.AppImage" to do anything. I've checked that permissions are set and created the rules file but double clicking the icon does not work and there is no Run option in the context menu. The Appimage file was on the USB stick but I also tried copying it int bin and onto the desktop without any success. Linux utilities, browser etc all run properly.
Can any Linux Guru suggest a solution?
