My computer warns me when I try to install Ferdium
Why do I see the name "Ambroise Grau" as publisher instead of "Ferdium"?
Which asset should I download?
For MacOS:You first need to know if you are using a computer running one of the intel chip or one of the more recent arm chip (developed only by Apple and called M1 or M2). If you do not know it, check the value in `Menu->About this Mac`. If you have an arm chip you need to look for the assets that contain `arm64` in their name. There are then two choices: the first one is to download the appropriate file finishing with `-mac.zip` which will unzip to give you the application directly; while the second choice is to get the `.dmg` which will mount and allow you to drag the application into your `Applications` folder. Both options are valid (though using the dmg is recommended) as long as you make sure to take the asset corresponding to your processor.
For Windows:There are 3 types of assets that can be downloaded to get Ferdium on Windows:
- The automatic installer (recommended): the asset named `Ferdium-Setup-6.x.x-*.exe`. After launching the executable, this will install Ferdium and all its configuration into the AppData\Local folder without prompt.
- The msi installer: named `Ferdium-6.x.x-*.msi`, this installer allows for a few additional options when installing the app compared to the automatic installer. If you are still running on a 32bit system, you need to choose the one that contains `ia32` in its name.
- The portable version: corresponds to the asset named `Ferdium-6.x.x-*.exe`. This is a standalone application that will create the configuration folder in the folder where the executable lies instead of storing it into AppData.
For Linux:The `Ferdium-6.x.x-*.AppImage` is a binary that can be executed immediately and that does not necessitate any installation. Alongside this, there are multiple package files for different types of Linux distributions, such as `.freebsd`, `.rpm` and `.deb` (the latter having multiple available architecture). All of these configure their local configuration into the home folder.
For any developer that wants to build from source, the code is also directly available for each release the app can be built simply by running the appropriate scripts found in the `script` folder (assuming that the environment has been set up correctly).
I can't find the menu bar anymore
If you want to prevent it from auto-hiding again, un-tick the option:
"View > auto-hide menu bar"
