qDslrDashboard fails under Linux Mint 20

Post by wky »

I'm using the app under windows (now 10) for years without problems. Since two days I have another laptop with the latest Linux Mint 20. My last contact with Linux was over 20 years ago and not intensive - so please bear with me ;-)

When calling ./qDslrDashboard.sh in a terminal I got the message

Code: Select all

error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory
I solved this as described in
https://www.linuxuprising.com/2018/05/f ... -1804.html

Next try gives:

Code: Select all

wolfgang@wolfgang-R-Evolve-Y13:~/Downloads/install/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.9_Linux_x64$
/home/wolfgang/Downloads/install/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.9_Linux_x64/./qDslrDashboard:
error while loading shared libraries: libjasper.so.1: cannot open shared
object file: No such file or directory
...
wolfgang@wolfgang-R-Evolve-Y13:~$ sudo apt install libjasper1 libjasper-dev
Paketlisten werden gelesen... Fertig
Abhängigkeitsbaum wird aufgebaut.
Statusinformationen werden eingelesen.... Fertig
E: Paket libjasper1 kann nicht gefunden werden.
E: Paket libjasper-dev kann nicht gefunden werden.
How should I proceed?

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi, just joined the forum. Been using qDslrdashboard for years on Android, finally got round to installing on LM 20 and Windows. Noticed same problems as you quoted on LM 20. Went one stage further than you and solved the issue. Followed the guide below and now working on LM 20. Hope this helps. :D

libjasper-dev from Ubuntu Xenial
Another alternative is to install libjasper-dev from an older release of Ubuntu, libjasper-dev 1.900.1 from Ubuntu Xenial 16.04.

Add the Xenial repository


echo “deb http://security.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial-security main” | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xenial.list


Install Jasper


sudo apt update
sudo apt install libjasper1 libjasper-dev



After installation of Jasper, remember to remove the Xenial repository to prevent conflicts and errors


sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/xenial.list
sudo apt update


Note that this version of Jasper is very old, 1.900 released before 2016.

This perfectly solved my problem, thanks a lot. Now I can sell my win10 notebook :-)
Sorry for the late reply, I had lost track of the problem.

Cannot find a PAYPAL button on the web site - how can I send you a donation?

Sorry, I was a bit hasty there:
I can start the program and control the camera.
But when I click Capture, I get 'Capture in progress' and the program hangs.
The image folder seems to have the right permissions (I can download an image there).
What else could be wrong?
Sorry, I am a Linux beginner :-(

Canon EOS 550D, connected via USB cable - works fine since years with the windows version on an identical laptop.

PS 14.1.2021: the first shot of each try is on the camera's SD card

Please try and disable the 'Use Canon local storage' option in qDD settings.

Enabling this option does the job, see my settings: http://www.wolfgang-kynast.de/tmp/qDD_LinuxMint.jpg

Thank you so much for your help! I have already sold the Win10 laptop :-)
