Hi hubaiz!
Thank you for your work!
I have a raspberry model pi 2 b, and completely follow your instruction, but it does not work :(
When I try to start qDslrDashboard.sh, the process qDslrDashboard is immediately stop.
I am try to install raspbian stretch latest release and exact 2017-11-29 release, but nothing help.
If i remove log output to dev/null in the qDslrDashboard.sh and try to run again, its only say "Illegal instruction".
What i am doing wrong?

Hi Hubaiz,
the Stretch version could run also in ubuntu Mate on Raspberry ?
If not, could you compile a version also for Ubuntu Mate on Raspberry?

Thanks
Fabio

I followed the directions running Raspbian Stretch and saw the following Error:

Code: Select all

cd ~
tar xzvf ~/Downloads/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI.tar.gz
cd qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI
sudo ./qDslrDashboard.sh 
/home/pi/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI/./qDslrDashboard: error while loading shared libraries: libGLESv2.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I tried add soft-links for new libs to old libs

Code: Select all

cd ~/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI/Qt_Libraries
sudo ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmEGL.so libEGL.so
sudo ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmGLESv2.so libGLESv2.so
sudo ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmOpenVG.so libOpenVG.so
sudo ln -s /opt/vc/lib/libbrcmWFC.so libWFC.so
After adding the softlinks I got a different Error

Code: Select all

cd ~/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI/Qt_Libraries
sudo ./qDslrDashboard.sh 
  pi@raspberrypi:~/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI.LibSoftLinksAdded$ QStandardPaths: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set, defaulting to '/tmp/runtime-root'

  qt.qpa.input: X-less xkbcommon not available, not performing key mapping
  glGetError 0x500
I am running Raspbian Stretch:

Code: Select all

cat /etc/os-release 
  PRETTY_NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux 9 (stretch)"
  NAME="Raspbian GNU/Linux"
  VERSION_ID="9"
  VERSION="9 (stretch)"
  ID=raspbian

Anyone else seen these problems with running qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI on Raspbian Strech. Will there be another version of qDslrDashboard_V3.5_7 Raspian that is compiled for the newer libbrcm* Libraryies?

thanks
Rob

Rob

First of all:

The "./qDslrDashboard.sh" command has to be used without "sudo".
When using it in one line together with sudo as a sudo command it causes user right issues as much as I know.

So just launch it from inside the programm folder (qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI) using only "./qDslrDashboard.sh" - without sudo.

###############

But for me there are also issues to use the Software.

Launching the Programm via ./qDslrDashboard.sh there are issues with the latest stabile Stretch Version of Raspian.

I do use a newly set up Raspberry Pi 3 B+.
"Stretch" System is updated, upgraded und Firmware updated as explained in this thread.
All componends are installed without error messages as explained.

But when launching via "./qDslrDashboard.sh" I get:

/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI $ ./qDslrDashboard.sh./qDslrDashboard.sh: Zeile 26: /dev/nul: Keine Berechtigung
rpi2@rpi2-"myname":~/qDslrDashboard_V3.5.7_RPI $ * failed to open vchiq instance
^C

!! I do use not the Standard user "pi" but my own username.

I wrote some threads about "vchiq" issues but could not find a solution.

Is there may be a problem with user rights or missing Groups?

Any help?

I'm not an RPI expert.
Find this, maybe it helps: https://raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q ... ion-errors
