#9147 MotionBox is running on Linux
10 months, 4 weeks ago Edited by Benjamin Arnaud on Oct. 29, 2016, 10:36 p.m.



Greetings folks,

It's been a busy day and I pushed a bunch of linux related code.

As of today I'm happy to announce that MotionBox is running on linux \o/.
The whole GUI is functional and the video playback is working... At least that's the case on ubuntu :-D.
There's still a few glitches related to drag & drop, window positioning and pictures. I'll have to double check on Arch linux.

I'll just run a few tests and push the very first linux release later next week.

Big thank to miotatsu for his help on the Sky kit linux build !

P34C3.

I'm pretty excited to get my hands on your creation. Is it ready for us to run over to your GitHub and give it a go, or should we all wait for an official Linux release?

@Jeremiah: Well it's still a bit rough around the edges. I'd say wait the end of the week.

I'm currently looking for a way to deliver it as a standalone archive.

Jeroen informed me that I'm silly and didn't see the Linux download link. I downloaded it and got it running. I had to install 'nas' to get the audio lib that it was complaining about, but then it fired up without a problem. Videos are playing just fine.

Thanks!

I didn't say _that_ exactly. I fixed the uploads and some of bunjees uploads had made it to the server, just not in the right place, so I reuploaded them after the fact and presto, one Linux version.

Greetings Jeremiah, Thank you for asking about it though !
The HMN 1.1.2 linux archive is quite dated indeed. I'll update that soon.

I've completed 1.2.0 for both Windows and Linux, you can get it here: http://omega.gg/MotionBox/get.
I didnt take the time to communicate about it yet. But when this happens it will certainly be on the HMN.

Congratulations for fixing the uploads Jeroen.

PS: That new site layout is really cool. Kudos to the web team.

Let me know if this happens with 1.2.0. Also, what distribution are you using ?

I'm in Arch Linux and had to install the 'nas' package from the AUR

That was the case for 1.1.2 archive. The 1.2.0 comes with libaudio2.

Sorry, I didn't have a chance to try the new version at the time. Seems to work great.
