Hi switch87,

The Linux operating systems that we support are listed here.

What steps have you tried so far?

Hye everebody !

I'm a french electronics techician and picoscope seems to be a beautiful software.
Sorry, for my noisly french :;(

I am using Gentoo Linux and i have implemented a portage of the latest picoscope v6 beta packages.

:!: I have pushed the complete rpms tree for Gentoo Linux on Github.

:idea: You can find ebuilds and instructions at https://github.com/jaypeche/picoscope-o ... /README.md.

For any questions, mailing me to : contact@pingwho.org

Hye everybody,

I have pushed latest ebuild for picoscope software suite v6.3.7b on Github inc.
Look at https://github.com/jaypeche/picoscope-overlay for install on your Gentoo Linux system.

Enjoy,

:;)

I've just tried that overlay.

It seem to install fine. After pgrogram refusing to run for the first time, I realised that I need to join group "pico".

Now it runs, but it refuses to detect DM3206D MSO.

When I plug the unit onto my PC, I can see that it reacts and detects new device.
lsusb does list "us 003 Device 007: ID 0ce9:1211 Pico Technology PicoScope 3000 series PC Oscilloscope"

But at each start-up program ignores it with a messag:
No suitable device found.
You can either plug a device in now or use a demo device.


Would you like to use a demo device?
