How to run PicoScope6 under Wine?

Postby photony » Sat Apr 21, 2012 11:12 am

Hi,
Is it possible to run PicoScope6 under Wine? I tried the instruction for PicoScope5 topic3909-15.html, but I encountered problems. I'm not sure should the instructions even work for PS6.

I'm running Ubuntu 10.04. The wine wrappers in the post mentioned above didn't compile and resulted in errors such as:
Code: Select all
Detecting directory for Wine libraries
Directory for Wine libraries: /usr/lib/wine
Compiling ps2000wine.o
ps2000wine.c:44:20: error: windef.h: No such file or directory
ps2000wine.c:45:21: error: winbase.h: No such file or directory
ps2000wine.c:46:24: error: wine/debug.h: No such file or directory


PS6 doesn't start if I try to run it with Wine. Is there anything that can be done?

If it's not possible to use PS6 with Wine, what software are you Linux users using? I have PicoScope2204 and would like to use the built in signal generator, which is not supported by PicoScope5 (if I've understood correctly).

Thanks for any help!

It looks as though Wine hasn't compiled fully.

Also, as PicoScope is .Net based, you will also need the .Net runtimes installed in Wine (.Net 2).

Being .Net, Mono should also be a possibility, but at this time it doesn't run - though it may just need some extra tweaking.
If it does, it'll run as a native app.

Thank you for the answer TinWhisker. I've used the .deb package to install Wine (on Ubuntu), so I'd expect it to installed properly. But I try to look into that and the .Net runtimes.

I had not heard about Mono before, but it sounds very interesting. That would be quite great if it would be possible to run PicoScope 6 natively. Do you think that it's possible? My error message for Mono was:
Code: Select all
tony@tony-desktop:~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Pico Technology/PicoScope6$ mono PicoScope.exe

The assembly was not found in the Global Assembly Cache, a path listed in the MONO_PATH environment variable, or in the location of the executing assembly (/home/tony/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/Pico Technology/PicoScope6/).

Does that make any sense?

Let's hope that some Mono expert on this forum gets interested and does his magic. Maybe be the developer team of PicoLabs could also help on this? ;) I think professionals would be very interested in this. At least on my work place, the main reason people are still using analog devices is that they don't want to use windows. Or don't have access to. Of course they could use something like Matlab to process the data, but still, a user friendly software is something they'd like to have.

That's pretty much the stopping point for me too.

Although I haven't tried Wine yet, it is the 'most' likely at this moment in time to run PicoScope due to being able to use
the MS .Net runtimes and recreating windows quirks that PicoScope may rely on.

If PicoScope gets tweaked to be Linux friendly, there's a greater chance Mono will cope with it. Otherwise, there is/was an open Linux effort by another forum member, with a simple scope running on a 2000 series scope.

Once more drivers are released and others join the effort, that may be a good starting point.
