New release is just out. It expands support for PS4000 device ranges. Fix for USB2.0 devices plugged into USB3.0 port is also present.

Enjoy...

Hi Martyn,

As with the older 2000 series the old 3000 series devices will be supported soon.


I can report that my 3204 seems to be running just fine. I'm really getting too old to get this excited over software!

I just mention one little gotcha in case someone else makes the same silly mistake. I searched for Picoscope in the launch menu editor and moved it from lost and found to the Development category. It refused to run Picoscope. I typed picoscope in a terminal and that was fine.

A closer inspection of the menu entry showed lots of wine stuff from my previous attempts to get picoscope running. :oops:

After replacing the command with 'picoscope', all was well. At least I have a nice icon left over from that attempt.

Many thanks for your efforts. I will report back after a more meaningful checkup.

We do not have a Mac version at present, although we are looking at the possibility of producing one.

Installed no errors Ubuntu 12.04. Launches, sees my 3206. Works as a 'scope, cannot turn on the AWG - the button depresses but does nothing. Known issue?

Not sure that has been implemented yet. Will check when in the office tomorrow.

Hi Mario,

it took me sometime to have the PC available for tests. Now the picoscope software works OK when connected to the USB3.0 port in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.

Thank you very much!

@JackElliott

Missing AWG/Siggen menu (or rather not appearing sometimes/or some controls not working in it ) for 3000 series, is unfortunate but known issue to be resolved.

Thanks for the Linux release.

My Picoscope 2104 (which had been sleeping in a drawer since I ditched Windows 2 years ago) works fine!

Hi,

is is possible to use I2C and RS232 Serial Decoding in the Ubuntu version?
It does not appear on the TOOLS menu.

The serial decoding user interface has not yet been implemented, although it is possible to load a .psdata/.pssettings file created in the windows version and run with those settings.

Hi,

i'm very grateful that Pico made this happen. It doubles the value of my oscilloscope.
I'm running OpenSuSE 13.1 here and I could run it sucessfully with the mono version
of the distribution (3.0.6).
I wrote a little install script to download an unpack the .deb packages. Run this in an empty directory:
Code: Select all
wget --accept deb --mirror http://labs.picotech.com/debian/
platorm="_i386"
if [ "$(uname -p)" == x86_64 ]; then
        platform="_amd64"
fi
echo $platform
list=$(find . -name "*$platform.deb" -or -name "*_all.deb")
for i in $list; do
        ar p $i data.tar.gz | tar zx
done

This does not install the software in / but rather extract everything to subfolders.
After this you need to add a group "pico", and add your user to this group. Additionally you can copy the udev rule file:
Code: Select all
cp etc/udev/rules.d/95-pico.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/


Then log out and log in and run the application:
Code: Select all
cd opt/picoscope/lib/
mono PicoScope.GTK.exe


shutdown
shutdown

Hello, I am trying to add the repository on to Ubuntu 12.04.3 (32 bit) but when I add the APT line
deb http://labs.picotech.com/debian picoscope main
or
deb http://labs.picotech.com/debian/ picoscope main
to the repository list, it gives an error from apt-get update :-
W: Failed to fetch http://labs.picotech.com/debian/dists/picoscope/Release Unable to find expected entry 'main/source/Sources' in Release file (Wrong sources.list entry or malformed file)

E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Any ideas what the problem is?
