Fedora 31 - how to start

Post by PrzemoF » Sat Nov 09, 2019 7:24 pm

What's the best way of getting PicoScope 2204A to work on fedora linux? I did some searching, but I don't see any "official" way.

I managed to start Picoscope 6 using different tricks on fedora 31, but I failed to convince the software I have the hardware connected. I tried root account, I added custom udev rule, the syste, sees the device, but the picoscope 6 fails to detect it. Normally I'd be able to debug it down to kernel level, but it's a proprietary software, so I need help. My setup:
- fedora 31 with mono installed
- hardware: PicoScope 2204A
- system sees the usb device as:

Code: Select all

[20059.297178] usb 3-2: new high-speed USB device number 13 using xhci_hcd
[20059.423315] usb 3-2: New USB device found, idVendor=0ce9, idProduct=1007, bcdDevice= 0.05
[20059.423320] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0
- my custom udev rule to change access rights and create symlink:

Code: Select all

$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/99-picoscope.rules 
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTR{idVendor}=="0ce9", ATTR{idProduct}=="1007", MODE="0666" SYMLINK+="picoscope"
Looks like picoscope can't find ps2000.dll. I don't have that dll and I can't find it
Where I can get it?

P.S. I'm experienced linux user and open source developer & supporter, so if you're interested in developing open source software for picoscope hardware please stand up & be counted :D

OK, I got the picoscope working. I had to put together some files manually, including picoscope.conf in /etc. Anyway, it can be done. The missing ps2000.dll is llibps2000.so

If someone needs the info quickly please post here. OtherwiseIi'll try to make an installation script in my free time.
