Both BOINC and SU give you a shell script that downloads an older version of BOINC (not even VirtualBox). After running it, the terminal tells you to run the run_manager file. When I run that it tells me that an object that has a name that starts with libwx is missing (I don't remember the full name because that's one of the things I did by myself, yesterday and I just want another solution).

Also, I added Science United as a project on the Android version and what it does is it counts down 24 hours, makes a connection request and then restarts (in other words, it doesn't work/doesn't receive any new tasks).

I've known about this project for about 2 years now, but was reminded of it by a friend and decided to start contributing again on my Windows 10 laptop (AMD) a week ago (Thursday night). I also have a notebook with an intel Atom that my brother gave me because he didn't know what to do with it and so I told him to install Lubuntu (since I'm more used to Ubuntu because I use a VM for some assignments that I have at my university). I've been trying all day to make this work. When I try using Science United as an account manager with the version from the package manager (7.9.3), as BOINC's site recommended, it says:
https://scienceunited.org/: Notice from BOINC
Message from account manager: Science United requires a newer version of BOINC. Please install the current version from
https://boinc.berkeley.edu/download.php

This is the same site that I looked up the first time.
Where should I look for a newer version that Science United actually accepts?
I'm also trying to figure out how to add my Android phone to Science United. I added SU as a project. Did I do this right, or should I just wait until next client release?
