Hello Κοτοπούλης,

We test the Einstein Toolkit on a number of Linux distributions before
each release and it should work on any of them. You can see the list
here: http://einsteintoolkit.org/testsuite_results/index.php and
currently it includes: debian (stable and testing release), Fedora
Core (29), Linux Mint (19.1), OpenSuSE (Tumbleweed), Ubuntu (18.04
long-term-support and 18.10), CentOS (7).

Any of the Desktop distributions should work without problems. CentOS
(since it targets servers) can be a bit more tricky since the default
installation may not install any GUI.

If you have not used Linux before you are probably best off using a
common distribution like Ubuntu.
