Linux 2018

Post by olzeke51 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 10:23 pm

Hi y'all,
Downloaded the Feb 8,2018 Coridium.7z that was linked from the Coridium.us/Blog posting re: Linux
'
I ran it on my MX-17 linux machine, had some failures - BUT I have some solutions!
1. after 'extracting' the files to your 'home' folder
2. run

Code: Select all

sudo bash installBASIC.sh
[in a terminal]
FYI - this creates a 'dialout' group to access the USB /com ports - Reboot
'
3. as su or sudo run these commands from a terminal in your ~/Coridium directory
this allows you to 'execute' the different parts of BASICtools

Code: Select all

chmod +x ARMbasic
chmod +x BASICtools
chmod +x bpp
Note: I also did it to the BASICtools.tcl and the TCLterm.tcl files - just in case
'
4. still as su or sudo I went to the "/user/local/bin/Coridium folder and
applied the same commands. this is probably overkill but I didn't want to spend too much time
'
have your board plugged in -- OR use the Help tab
5. as a normal user , goto your ~/Coridium folder and do

Code: Select all

bash BASICtools
6. Pick your editor; unless your system has 'gedit' [out-of-box default] and you want to use it.
FWI - my editors were in /usr/bin folder -- I am currently using 'bluefish'
'
HAVE FUN !!!

P.S. I want to thank @nik28200 for the impetus to do this again!! - Thanks

Can you add your changes to the install script?

You might pick up the most recent BASICtools and TclTerm Tcl scripts, let me know if they need Linux mods. They are version 6.06, those source scripts installed in Windows, though only TclTerm.tcl is used in Windows. In Windows BASICtools is compiled with FreeWrap so it operates as a standalone .exe file in Windows.

If you do, zip it up and I'll update the version here in the forum

-- edit - oops BASICtools.tcl is not in the installer now, I'll fix that next time I do an update. People in the past have actually made changes to the Tcl source. Though i have to admit Tcl is a bit weird, not as weird as Forth.

Thanks Olzeke (an actual Linux user)

I checked out the version on my Ubuntu system, and it is working for me, at least as much as I tried. I am still a windoz guy.
I will update this in the files download linked from the forum (with a name change so I don't have to change the blog entry all the time.

LOL! I fully concur with that. RPN and all of the stack jacking made muh gray matter ooze out of my ear canals. It is some pretty goofy stuffs. However, I did go on a small Forth binge back many moons ago, when I had a Sony Clie' as one of my first smart portable devices, back in the early 2000s. Actually wrote a missile command game for that in Forth. Was painful fun.
