Re: Support: Cannot run demo scripts.

So I am noticing I clicked OpenMV1... Thought I had 1 but I guess I have 2 :) I got it to give me an image in the frame buffer. Sorry for the false alarm. I will go look into setting up a linux vm... I'm on OS X. I've also found that the IDE is less robust loading the example code on OSX than it is...

am I missing a repository or is python-pi supposed to be python-pip?
I think it needs to be 'python-pip'; you will use pip to install numpy, pyserial, pyusb, and Pillow.

Re: Firmware Development

I'm telling people to avoid it just because we can't support that right now. Both me and Ibrahim are doing everything in Linux. So, this is the easiest way to have everyone working. Fair enough, that is probably wise. It does take some tinkering to get all the dependencies in place, and I appreciat...

Re: Firmware Development

Going over to the wiki to see if there were any helpful tips, I came across this section from https://github.com/openmv/openmv/wiki/Firmware-Development#mac-installation Okay, I lied, there's no Mac development environment. Instead you can install Ubuntu on a virtual machine running on your mac mach...

Re: How to get the boards up and running?

Hello Thomas- I'm honestly curious how you determined that the BGA chips are correctly soldered to the boards if you haven't yet programmed them with a self-test routine. X-Ray inspection? As far as I can tell, the bootloader for the OpenMV is the DFU routine that comes as a built-in part of the STM...

Re: Received Firesale board

Thanks Kwabena, I may take you up on the Skype offer. For now, I can report that I got the IDE up and running on Ubuntu (after figuring out the dependencies to install, and no, I wasn't on the ball to make a list as I was doing it...) It does seem to be generally more stable on Ubuntu than on my mac...

Received Firesale board

Hi All- I'm happy to report that I received the OpenMV board purchased through the firesale and had a chance to play with it today. My initial tests were using the IDE from github, launching the IDE from the command line on my fairly old MacBook Pro (had an issue getting the package to run, could be...
