'PicoScope 6 Beta' (version 6.13.7.707) crashes at startup on Ubuntu 19.04

Post by joshua.cowpland »

I had picoscope working about a week ago, and have since updated/upgraded. Now it crashes whenever I try to run it. Anyone got similar problems or a solution? I've attached my trace.xml if it helps.

I emailed Pico about this and they're aware of the issue.
It appears that Picoscope beta is only supported on Ubuntu 18.04.
In my case I installed Mint 19.1 (which is based on Ubuntu 18.04) and it is now working.
I was also told (on the 19th August) that the new release would be "in the next month". I won't be holding my breath :-)

Hi,

You can try to follow these instructions to get PicoScope working in Ubuntu 19:

I'm using Picoscope in Ubuntu 19 and everything works just fine :)
