Thanks! I'm still having trouble because I can't figure out how to install Butane on my setup. I'm running on windows WSL2 Ubuntu. The getting started docs for Butane have instructions for installing with brew, docker, podman, or Fedora, none of which I'm using. I tried downloading the stand alone binary, but I'm not sure which one of the assets to download and where to go from there. Any ideas?

Let me know if I should make a new thread for this since it's a different topic.

Good question. Let me talk to the systems team and see if I can get more info on installing Butane while using windows WSL2 Ubuntu.

Hey, any update on this? I'd love to get my forem going but this is blocking me.

Hey Alex. Sorry for the delayed response.
After talking to Systems they first wanted to mention that docs assume a local workstation of macOS or Fedora, (something we could make clearer in our docs!) and hasn't been tested on any flavor of WSL.

That said they believe you would need to use the butane-x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu asset. They believe that to be the generic linux binary x86 64bit hosts. I will try to get more detail on what to do after that point.
