Can't install openMV IDE

Postby DrEamEr » Mon Oct 01, 2018 4:12 pm

I bought a raspberry pi 3 b+ board and I wanted to install the openMV IDE in it so I downloaded the RASPBERRY PI version from the openmv website. After that, I followed the steps given in the README.txt file. However, when I run ./bin/ I get the following error:
./bin/openmvide: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Hi, did you install the IDE in a path without spaces in it? That error literally means that the IDE can't find one of it's own binaries. I haven't seen this error before...

I'm not sure what can cause this. Either the download was corrupted or something on your Pi is changing the IDE's library path value.

Um, did you run the ./ script? Also, note that you can run the IDE directly by double clicking on the openmvide binary without running the script

A suggestion..

1. download libExtensionSystem
2. extract at /usr/local/src/
3. execute the .sh file after ./configure if exist
4. update rpi using sudo raspi-update
5. try to run ./
