    Hi, the problem is the zip file generated by GitHub, and the source code that does not foresee this situation, to install both on Windows and Linux you have to rename the addon folder and copy everything in the Blender addon directory.

    To fix problem:
    rename install directory bpyhullgen-master to bpyhullgen​

    For Ubuntu it is located in the hidden directory: /home/user/.config/blender/2.92/scripts/addons/

    For Windows and other info look here Blender’s Directory Layout — Blender Manual https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/advanced/blender_directory_layout.html

    Here for the info about the bpyhullgen installation edzop/bpyhullgen https://github.com/edzop/bpyhullgen/wiki/Installation

    You don't have to clone with git, just download the code bpyhullgen-master.zip from here edzop/bpyhullgen https://github.com/edzop/bpyhullgen , you don't need to compile anything, after downloading the file you have to extract the content and rename everything as described above. 
but this addon is not easy to use.

    a screen shot of the button to download.

    I dowloaded the zip file and I changed the name and than installed via edit/preferences/addon/ install.
    I could not find where is the shortcut located, there is nothing on enabled addon list or all the addon list.
    Help!

    Don't install via addon preferences, because the wrong name is also inside the packed file that has the same name of the folder, the dir has this name inside the zip file bpyhullgen-master
