Automated installation on Linux

Raul Zanardo from Brazil wrote a shell script to install Pinguino on Linux.
This script was used on Ubuntu 9.10. It download Pinguino on the website, create a folder, copy rules files and create a Microchip group.
So you can use pinguino as is with good rules for the USB device.

Congratulations Raul.

Installation script.

The script now creates the group "microchip" and the user become member of this group.

Hi everybody.
I run the script and it installs everything, but then I don't find anything, neither the grup or user micrhochip. Where have I to look for?

You run it as root?

Jose Luis said...

Yes I do. I put "python" as su and I compile the .pde file. Then when I want to send it to the PIC I find this:

(python:1849): GVFS-RemoteVolumeMonitor-WARNING **: cannot connect to the session bus: org.freedesktop.DBus.Error.NoReply: Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

Jose Luis said...

I did it.
The problem was because of a jumper. (Things of new-user)

Thank you raul by the script.

Hi there, I've run in a similar trouble (tried the forum but I can't register.... no code image displayed) :-/
Anyone an idea why it says (under OpenSuse Linux) after compiling code and click to upload : 'Impossible to change the device configuration' ?

LSusb shows : Bus 001 Device 007: ID 04d8:feaa Microchip Technology, Inc.. Added the rules, added the 'microchip' group and me as user of that group, but still getting this message, I'm a bit lost :-( . if anyone has an idea, as there is no other 'debug' message. Thanks

In fact it evendoesn't run as root !? Anyone tried w/OpenSuse 11.4 ? (PS : I would have posted in the forum, but I can't register, no captch caode appears on reg. Page)
