Linux


Installation on Linux

Theremino system applications work on Windows 32 bit, Windows 64 bit, Linux and Mac OSX so download them from the download pages “Foundations”, “Multimedia” and “Uncategorized”.

Applications that do not access the USB can be performed with Wine, those who access the USB should be performed with Mono.

This page lists the installation mode and libraries for Linux systems in both the binary version that source code.

Make sure that Directory names and application Subdirectory of the system Theremino not have spaces, dashes or special characters. Could cause malfunctions in Linux.

To run under Linux, Theremino system applications they need in the same folder where the executable program is also the CustomControls.dll library .
Download it from the page http://www.theremino.com/downloads/uncategorized and copy it beside the. exe file you wish to perform.


Attention: the HAL, from version 5 onwards, may not work, on Linux and on MAC. The last known good version, is the 4.6 (both VbNet that CSharp):

http://www.theremino.com/wp-content/uploads/files/Theremino_HAL_CSharp_V4.6_WithSources.zip

On our site are also stored versions of all applications. For earlier HALs, just change the version numbers, in 4.0/4.1/4.2/4.3/4.4/4.5/4.6/5.0/5.1


Attention: There are new important initiatives for Linux, Android, Raspberry PI and Mac OSX, read here: http://www.theremino.com/blog/the-hal#comment-12507


Attention: This information is partly outdated. Small PC with Windows, they are always cheaper. On PCs and Tablet with Windows, all our applications work, with the 100% of efficiency, and they work for (you do not need to perform lengthy and complicated installations).

Run with Wine

The programs of the system Theremino can run with Wine.
This is the procedure to install Wine on Ubuntu.

Open the Terminal and type the following commands:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:Ubuntu-wine/ppa
sudo apt-get update

If you are using Ubuntu 10.10 install Wine 1.3. x :
sudo apt-get install wine 1.3

If you are using a newer Ubuntu install Wine x 1.5. :
sudo apt-get install wine 1.5

Always remaining in the Terminal install WineTricks script :
wget http://winetricks.org/winetricks
chmod + x winetricks

Install the Microsoft Core Fonts:
sh corefonts
When running the installer of ttf-mscorefonts, wish to continue the installation by using the TAB keys, to confirm ENTER, “Ok”, “Yes” .

Install Microsoft NET starting sequentially from older versions and trying to update to the latest versions:
sh winetricks dotnet20
sh winetricks dotnet20SP2
sh winetricks dotnet30 and

Install the libraries GDI+ :
sh winetricks gdiplus

Only in the event of having to run older applications in VB6: Install the Microsoft run-time VisualBasic6 doing right click, run with Wine, the executable here indicated:
vbrun60sp6
(Thremino system applications aren't written in Visual Basic 6 and so do not need this installation)

Install a version of Adobe Acrobat Reader that is compatible with your operating system emulated by Wine, for example, with Wine the following Setup:
acrobat405

Now you can run your applications Theremino with Wine by going for example Computer audio/video subsystem.

Running Theremino_MCA with Wine in Linux Ubuntu


The Slots

In this file all the Software to manage the Slots in Linux.
Theremino_Slots_Linux_V 1.0

First, the library libThereminoSlots.so must be installed into the Directory “/usr/lib” by running the command File “COPY_TO_USR_LIB.sh”. This Shell Script copies the library and puts its readable and executable by any user. On some Linux systems may now need a Reboot.

Run the Test program Theremino_Slots_C_Linux flinging START.sh command File this application writes a value into the Slot 0, the re-reads the Slot itself and multiplies it by 1000, then he rewrites the Slot 1. If everything works, the reading of the Slot 1 Returns the value multiplied.

Testing Theremino Slots


OSC communication over UDP

In this file all Software to manage communication Open Sound Control in Linux.
Theremino_OSC_UDP_Linux_V 1.0

First, Download the Theremino_OSC from the page “Foundations” Copy the command File “START.sh” in the Directory containing the program “Theremino_OSC.exe”

Install the application by downloading it from the Web page PureData
http://puredata.info/downloads/pd-extended
by choosing the version for your version of Linux running.

Using a Firewall (in Ubuntu Linux, you can install the package “Gufw” using the Packet Manager) , You must enable UDP ports choices (7400 and 7401) both read and write local PC.

Install using the Packet Manager Mono virtual machine packages:
Mono-runtime
libmono-system-runtime 1.0-cil
libmono-system-runtime 2.0-cil
libmono-corlib 1.0-cil
libmono-corlib 2.0-cil
libmono-posix 1.0-cil
libmono-posix 2.0-cil
libmono-microsoft 7.0-cil
libmono-microsoft 8.0-cil
libmono-winforms 1.0-cil
libmono-winforms 2.0-cil
libmono-uia-winforms 1.0-cil
libmono-windowsbase-cil 3.0
Mono-winforms-a11y
libmono-microsoft-visualbasic 8.0-cil
libgdiplus

Run the command File “START.sh” that should launch the Assembly “Theremino_OSC.exe”. If the program does not start, You can parse the File “command.log” to find the reason of malfunction, for example, a missing library.

Launch the application PureData and open the File “theremino_osc_puredata. pd”. After pressing the message “connect” It should be possible to, using OSC messages UDP, dialogue with the program “Theremino_OSC.exe”

Communication with Open Sound Control messages


The HAL program on Linux.

In this file all the Software to manage the USB HID devices in Linux.
Theremino_HID_Linux_V 1.0

First, install libThereminoHidApi.so into the Directory “/usr/lib” by running the command File “COPY_TO_USR_LIB.sh”. This Shell Script copies the library and puts its readable and executable by any user.

If it is not already there, install using the Packet Manager library package “libusb-1.0”. Right now, the Directory “/usr/lib” should contain that library “libusb-1.0.so” and also symbolic links that point to it: “libusb-1.0.so.0” and “libusb-1.0.so. o.o. or”. If you experience problems accessing HID devices, create these links by logging in as “root”.

Open a Terminal window and log in as “root” typing the command “sudo-i” and copy to the directory “/etc/udev/rules.” 41 files-theremino. rules

Perform a Reboot.

If you have not already done so, install using the Packet Manager virtual machine packages Mono-runtime.

Download the Http://www.theremino.com/downloads/foundations from the page “Foundations”. Copy the command File “START.sh” in the Directory containing the program “Theremino_HAL.exe”

Run the command File “START.sh” that should launch the Assembly “Theremino_HAL.exe”. If the program does not start, You can parse the File “command.log” to find the reason of malfunction, for example, a missing library.

Use the Geiger Adapter with serial RS232

To easily connect the Geiger Adapter, the RS232 port with minimal hardware, see the adapter here: www.theremino.com/hardware/inputs/radioactivity-sensors * rs232

There are several ways to read the data of Geiger Adapter through the serial port:
1) Use the ThereminoBridge and ThereminoGeiger applications with Mono.
2) Use applications ThereminoBridge and ThereminoGeiger with Wine.
3) Use a Python script.

We Want You !

Our software was developed on Windows, We know well. If you have experience of Android, Linux or Mac OSX could help us improve compatibility and complete porting all programs. Write to us!


Get the system modules

The theremino team only deals with research and does not sell hardware. The system is completely "Freeware", "Open Source", "Not for Profit" and "DIY", but there are manufacturers who can provide modules assembled and tested at a great price. One could hardly self-build them spending less. A list of manufacturers on this page: www.theremino.com/contacts/producers
