Doesn't work under Linux !!!

If I download the archive, unpack it and run either CHITUBOX or AppRun, it complains that it can't find the QT libraries.

If I set LD_LIBRARY_PATH to include "lib", it says

> QObject::startTimer: Timers can only be used with threads started with QThread

> This application failed to start because no Qt platform plugin could be initialized. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.

What's so hard about properly packaging an application together with the required libraries?

Are there any alternative slicers for Elegoo Mars? Are Elegoo Mars printers now completely unusable because chitubox developers aren't able to package their app properly?

    And trying to run the Windows version under Wine also doesn't work. Missing some DLLs. 

    And you're trying to sell and charge money for this? WTF?!?

    I think chitubox may not expect you to use wine to run. It can run smoothly on my Windows computer.

    I created a folder named "Apps" in my home folder ($HOME)
    I copied the folder "CHITUBOX v1.8.1" in my Apps folder
    I renamed it to "chitubox"
    I created the following 4 lines of text file in my "chitubox" folder :
    # Use this script for execute portable version of CHITUBOX
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:$HOME/Apps/chitubox/lib

    I saved it under the name : ""
    I changed the properties of this file to make it executable 
       (right click > properties > access rights > is executable)
    When I doubleclick on it, the CHITUBOX program is launched.
