info

SODA for SPARC may work on other Debian based distributions but we have not tested compatibility at this time.

Since our Linux SODA app is in the AppImage format, you can move this file anywhere on your computer and run it. If you would like to move the app into the applications older, we recommend you use the open-source AppImage Launcher to organize and handle all AppImage programs for your Linux system.
