Microdrop on Linux


#1

I know that it is possible to set up a development environment on Linux for Microdrop. Is it possible with the current or pending 1.0 release to run the Dropbot with Microdrop from a Linux based machine?

Hi Michael,

Yes, it is possible to run the 1.0 release from a Linux-based machine. I have it running on a 64-bit Ubuntu 14.04 instance. I’ll need to get around to double-checking that all of the dependencies are listed properly, but the idea is that you should be able to install microdrop by running:

pip install microdrop==1.0rc0

This should install microdrop and any dependencies. However, the control board plugin will likely need to be installed manually. Once I have verified the dependencies, I will post the Linux control board plugin and will put together instructions on how to install it.

Cheers,
Christian

PS - See here for info on pip, which is a tool used to install Python packages.

Christian,

Any progress on checking the dependencies and posting the Linux control board plugin and installation instructions? We would like to transition to a Linux system if possible.

Hi Michael,

Since all the users in our lab are running Windows, I’ve shifted to developing in Windows for the past while so haven’t run things in Linux lately.

I’m out of the country until the end of the week for work. I should have time to take a look at this the following week.

Cheers,

Christian

Christian,

I am not having any luck trying to install on a raspian distro for Raspberry Pi 3. It stops installing with a "Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement cairo (from microdrop) error.

Let me know if you have success with an Ubuntu distro and if you can provide an updated requirements list that would be great. Also, what is the current recommended version we should install and please provide the instructions for the manual install of the linux control board plugin.

–Michael

I was able to manually install matplotlib with apt-get but now continue to get stalled out with not able to find matching distribution for cairo. I have installed cairo (libcairo2-dev) for ubuntu via apt-get but this does not solve issue with pip installation of microdrop.
