    As far as I can see Sokolution 3.0 is meant to be used without a GUI.

    After playing with the call parameters I have noticed that Sokolution can show a simple GUI when called like this for example:
    sokolution --solver-level-path=../ressources/levels/autogen/autogen_1.txt --solver-use-gui=1

    However, it looks like it's only a GUI for the developer to debug the program.

    If you want a user friendly way to solve levels I recommend to use Sokoban YASC and then install Sokolution V2.02 which can be selected as Solver in Sokoban YASC after being installed.

    Sokolution V2.02 is nearly as good as Sokolution V3.0. Hence, most of the levels can also be solved by that version.
