MultiWii Conf GUI in Linux


Ok I know I'm being thick but how do you install/run the GUI under Linux. I just can't get it running.

Ubuntu 11.04

Ignore, being dumb - just needed to update the permissions to make it executable.

New problem can't get the Com port to work. I get TTYUSB2, TTYUSB1, TTYUSB0 but in the Arduino software the Com port it uses is called TTYACM0.

Any ideas?

GUI also appears to hang when moving between the three USB TTYs. It exhibits this behaviour even when the multiwii is disconnected and only the FTDI is plugged in.

Add a symbolic link from ttyACM0 to ttyUSB9 or something and multiwii will discover it.

You may wanna implement something like this automatically with udev:

Code:
[[email protected] ~]$ more /etc/udev/rules.d/09-arduino.rules 
SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{product}=="FT232R USB UART", ATTRS{idProduct}=="6001", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0403", SYMLINK+="arduino arduino_$attr{serial} ttyUSB9"
KERNEL=="ttyACM*", ATTRS{product}=="Arduino*", SYMLINK+="arduino arduino_$attr{serial} ttyUSB9"
KERNEL=="rfcomm0", SYMLINK+="arduino ttyUSB9"
The above code will let you connect your Arduino Duemilanove or Arduino Pro Mini + FTDI breakout as well as Arduino UNO and bluetooth serial connection (eg: bluetooth mate gold/silver) always using ttyUSB9.

That did the trick - thanks Fabio.

Quick question. Is the rfcomm0 at the end to link your bluetooth device?

EDIT - reads your actual post properly. Yes it does. Another thank you.

Yeah, when you use rfcomm to connect to it. Refer to http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/bluetooth-guide.xml for more informations.

Hi!

Sorry for the old thread reply but I could not find it anywhere and I think it will help.

After a lot of try and error I run MultiWiiConf as root and USB port appears. No need for symbolik link or script.

Code:
$ cd MultiWiiConf/application.linux64

$ sudo ./MultiWiiConf

I tested on Ubuntu 13.10, added one line as follows.

sudo gedit /etc/rc.local

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
#!/bin/sh -e
#
# rc.local
#
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
#
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# bits.
#
# By default this script does nothing.
chmod 777 /dev/ttyUSB0

exit 0
