Linux device support

Post by AndrewA »

For installing drivers on armhf - Raspberry-Pi systems see-
viewtopic.php?p=145119#p145119

amd64 systems
For Using PicoScopes on follow the steps here https://www.picotech.com/downloads/linux

For Using Pico DataLoggers (USB TC-08, ADC-20/24, PT-104, CM3 etc) these need to be manually installed
Manually download and install the *_amd64.deb packages from url repo below.
https://labs.picotech.com/rc/picoscope7/debian
https://labs.picotech.com/rc/picoscope7/rpm
For example for the USB TC-08, download one of the libusbtc08*.deb files.
And Use-

Code: Select all

sudo dpkg -i ./libpsXXXXX.deb
To install the deb package.

Note you can manually install the related PicoScope package for your API model.
(For example 5000D -> 5000a API -> libps5000a.deb)
But you also need to install a "libpicoipp" package for all PicoScopes which are here-
debian - https://labs.picotech.com/rc/picoscope7 ... ibpicoipp/
rpm - https://labs.picotech.com/rc/picoscope7/rpm/x86_64/

Another alterative method of using shared libraries files directly (*.so files") instead of deb packages see-

Old Archived PicoScope for Linux builds both 32-bit and 64-bit versions

Post by AndrewA »

We have Archived PicoScope for Linux builds this is both 32-bit and 64-bit versions. And all versions including and previous to 6.12.9 of picoscope.
This this has been done due a bug in picoscope and issues separating 32 and 64 bits, verse separate archive for each version and 32 and 64bit versions.

Archive of builds in tar.gz, included a README file for installation instructions:
https://labs.picotech.com/linux/archive ... bit.tar.gz

related repos-
RPM- https://labs.picotech.com/linux/archive ... _rpm_repo/
Debian- https://labs.picotech.com/linux/archive ... bian_repo/
