Getting started with MangaCat

Welcome to our getting started section! You've downloaded MangaCat or you are thinking of using it...either way, this section will get you started in the right direction.



When choosing an installer, make sure to choose the right installer for your operating system. When preparing to download an installer, make sure to check the installer name for hints as to the supported OS and bit type. As an example, I have an installer name which reads something like this:

MangaCat v0.5.0.0 Linux x86-setup.jar

I've highlighted the important bits in different colours:
  • Red - Version number of MangaCat
  • Blue - The operating system that the installer is meant for (Linux in this instance)
  • Green - Bit type for your oeprating system. x86 means 32 bit OS, x64 mean 64 bit OS.

Windows Installation
Installation is pretty straight forward. Just follow the installer instruction.

Linux Installation
This is a little more complicated. Linux users can watch this tutorial for a full explanation on installation
