The people using LiveCode with Linux I know (also seen from all the
responses here) have special characteristics

= they have a high level of scripting abilities
= they are also interested in other OSes
= they are passionate lovers of LiveCode 
= they are able to use LiveCode in agony without crying.

I use Lubuntu/Xubuntu on my Raspis and have moreover my fastest
machine running with Mint-Cinnamon.
But I work with LiveCode only on Mac or Win. Whenever I make a widget
or use widgets I try for several hours to arrive at workarounds for
the linux version. Only that is a lot of pain -- the upper limit for me.
