Free Linux SRN Client

IT’S finally here.  I was hoping to release this at the same time as the Apple OSX client for Student Response Network back in January, but better late than never.  In an education setting, the most likely place students would be running Linux clients is with Netbooks.  Most of the original netbooks that first appeared in 2008 all had some flavour of Linux on them, and many are still being sold with Linux in lieu of Windows XP.

Here, the client is shown running on Ubuntu x86 – v8.10, but it should work on virtually any distribution of Linux running on a 32-bit x86 platform.  Once connected to a running Windows SRN Server, the SRN Client for Linux will shrink down just like the Windows and OSX clients do, leaving a neat interface for students to use:

SRN Client for Linux is available as a free download from the Downloads page. Any comments about this client?  Just add them below.

  1. I am trying to run this on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit .. unsuccessfully. I have installed GTK+3.0, but when running the executable it fails to launch.
