Picoscope 6 installed on Fedora 36

Post by anthony_325 »

Greetings All,

I followed the instructions from Flinus in this thread:


for Fedora 36, and it all worked rather well. I did notice that running picoscope from the menu system (in this case gnome), it did not run. I then figured it would be something to do with the script in /opt/picoscope/bin called simply 'picoscope'. This is because this is file to which the menu item (/usr/share/applications/picoscope.desktop') points.

Sure enough, this script does not seem to account for the local installation of /opt/picomono. I chopped a lot out of it and edited it to the following:

Code: Select all


export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/opt/picomono/lib:/opt/picoscope/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH"
export TERM=xterm

cd /opt/picoscope/lib
exec "$RUN_CMD" "/opt/picoscope/lib/PicoScope.GTK.exe" >/dev/null 2>&1
I hope this is of assistance to others.
