As the title says.  Anim8tor ver 1.01 runs perfectly on Sparky Linux GameOver edition (listed under special editions in the wiki).

Just download anim8or onto the drive, then run with playonlinux.

I could not get it to run on other flavors of linux.

I've not tried PlayOnLinux. But have run Anim8or on Linux Mint using wine. Looking at the desktop icon I created for it, it launches Anim8or using this command:
sh -c "cd /home/john/Downloads/3D\ CAD/Anim8or1402; wine ./Anim8or_1402.exe"

i.e. it changes directory to where I installed anim8or, and then launches anim8or using Wine.
Wine: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wine_(software)

The icon on the desktop is created by a text file called "Anim8or.desktop", which contains the following text:
[Desktop Entry]
Comment=Run Anim8or using Wine
Terminal=false
Name=Anim8or
Exec=sh -c "cd /home/john/Downloads/3D\ CAD/Anim8or1402; wine ./Anim8or_1402.exe"
Type=Application
Icon=wine

Linux, sminux.

Also it seems like I can't select any vertices, lines or polygon when I'm in perspective view?
Anyone has the same issues?

Hmmm worked fine for me running animator1402.exe under wine no prefixes on Gurada linux.   ALso worked fine under Sparky.

But under MX Linux, Ubuntu I could not get the editor to get beyond black screen.  I dont know what drivers and libraries are missing and its actually easier to just switch linux flavors.

I'm working on a brand new Minisforum HX90 with manjaro as the OS.
And right now, I'm running into the same problem as you with the blackscreen.
tried to do the prefix32, but with no result.

Also I'm tired and I wouldn't recommend this software to anyone in 2021.
I gotta move on.

I somehow think I fix it?
at first it doesn't work.
But I'm using steam instead of wine, with proton 6.3-8

But somehow I think this has to do with the kernel or the Mesa drivers
