Energia Linux Installation

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I have been unable to find the method to install energia on a linux machine. Could you kindly explain the steps required? Thanks for your time.

Right now there isn't a binary version of the linux Energia. You will have to checkout the latest code and use 'ant' to build and run it. You need the following prerequisite software:

 

  • msp430-gcc 4.5.3 or above
    mspdebug (the latest version would probably be best )
    java compiler
    ant

 

once you have checked out the git source or downloaded a zip and unpacked it,

in a terminal window type:

 

$ cd Energia/build
$ ant clean build run

If all goes well, it should compile the java Energia code, and then start running the IDE.

Ok, I have built this on Mint 12. I run ant clan build run and it gives me an ide. I can compile software. Now, how do I run the IDE again? Is there a Binary hiding somewhere?

Thank you. However, as I posted in another thread I cannot get the binaries to work. I keep running into Java issues. I've got this working. do I need to run 'ant run' now everytime I want to use this?

 

Further, I cannot get the damned cdcacm drivers to work.

Yes. Via the command 'ant run' (in the energia/build directory) I can get the IDE to load and I can compile software via the 'verify' button. I'll read the thread about the cdcacm driver you've linked.
