Seems half the indicators don't work on Linux. Anyone found a non-Windows fix?

Great to know. Thx,

I just have access to the EX4 file available in market however.

Anyway to recompile an ex4 or something like that? My guess is no but who knows if theres a way around it? Always wanted to know a way to always be able to DL the mq4's for when the market only allows you to DL the EX4 for this type of situation.

No you can just put the ex4 in the experts folder.

Compiling is only nessesary if you have the mq4 file.

Well I just  put the EX4 in the experts folder and still can't run it. Whats this for anyway? Sometimes works with that method?

Can you run the above indicator on Linux?

Just occurred to me, copy paste the whole mt4 folder from the windows Virtualbox installation after it sort of messes with it upon running it correctly in the windows VM, Gotta check this out however gotta set VM up etc.

If you know anything else about this type of situation let me know , I know the title sais non-windows, however VM's are game I guess I just want this thing running on Linux.

No but where did you get the ex4 ?

You can compile about anything on codebase: https://www.mql5.com/en/search#!keyword=fibonacci&module=mql5_module_codebase

I got the ex4 from the above link with virtualbox

If you find a way to get it running on Linux let me know I still can't figure this out
