I have IDE running ( I think!) under Ubuntu in VirtualBox on my MAC.
I have enabled the USB connection in VirtualBox.
When I try to ‘connect’ the IDE (it opens and shows “helloworld.py[disconnected]”, i get the message box shown in attached screen capture.
in addition, it is complaining about a missing file/directory: where do I get this file from ?
The /dev/openmvcam is a device. Its basically like on windows COM5 etc. missing.
You’re getting that error because the udev rules aren’t installed. Please follow the getting started guide to get that working. You just have two execute a two simple terminal commands to install the udev rules and once that is done the camera will show up.
(1): I installed Ubuntu on a virtual machine in VMware. I executed the 2 commands to update the rules, plugged in the camera [ more on that at tend] and tried to open the IDE and got the attached error messages.
(2:) The camera LED’s in VM were either solid red or no LED"s at all.
When I plug in camera using Ubuntu on VirtualBox, I get solid red with flashing blue.
I’m working on the Mac port right now. Hopefully we’ll have it working before the end of the week.
The LEDs aren’t an issue. As for the error that’s because your system libraries are too old. Ubuntu ships with old libraries for some reason. You’ll have to update them. Please try updating Ubuntu or “sudo apt-get upgrade”
You can skip the whole qt-creator part. You just need to execute the install commands and linux. Then download the repo we have online. Once you do that just follow the instructions under “OpenMV Development” for command line operation.
It’s not actually that much of a pain to use…
Sorry about this. If Ibrahim has any suggestions he’ll let you know.
When I check version of Python that ubuntu is using, it shows version 2.7.11+; there are python 3.5 files when I search for ‘python’ files, but obviously Ubuntu is not running that version.
Which version of Python should be used for IDE?
I have a Mac so I spent some time last night trying to get that working on my Mac. Wasn’t able to do so . Ibrahim will have to get it working an he doesn’t have a Mac right now.
After I get the tutorial online the IDE is pretty much the biggest fire right now for us so I’m going to spend considerable effort fast tracking the new Qt based IDE which already has the cross platform installation framework done for us. It’s not going to be ready probably until September.
