Graphs as those on the Charts page?
Seems to be OK after 1 minute stop and then start again.

Yes. Very odd. Perhaps I changed the code to work around the mono problem...

Edit: No, I didn't, so I don't know how that's working for you.

The tooltips on the Charts page has decimal point but that is not an issue!
The issue is that with mono 4 I get log files as Dec15log.txt when it should be dec15log.txt.

In this thread, the user got version 4.0.2 fairly easily: http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=14635&p=113229

Does that not get you 4.0.2 now?

Edit: I tried adding deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 jessie-mono4 main to my sources.list, installed mono-complete, and got mono 4.0.2, which detected my Fine Offset station.


I'm working on it ... currently I got a PGP issue (?) with this additional line in /etc/apt/sources.list ... ;)
Without this additional line I am still getting mono 3.2.8 ...

But thanks for the hints .. didn't fall over the other thread before ... :)

As the saying goes, mono version 3.2.8 which comes with jessie works dont f*** with it. It works! No need to update it.

Hmm, is the content of the software package Mono 3.2.8 different in Wheezy and Jessie ?
If not, then I'm doubting, that Mono 3.2.8 will work for the users of non english locales ...
I had may experiences in spring 2015 (using Wheezy, though) ...

I upgraded to PIXEL - the latest Raspberry Pi offering https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/.

So far not much luck with CumulusMX.

Code: Select all

pi@raspberrypi:~/Documents/CumulusMX $ sudo mono CumulusMX.exe
Current culture: English (United Kingdom)

I'm sure you are all going to tell me to downgrade MONO...

Apart from 3.2.8, which seems to be completely bulletproof, 4.0.x appears to be quite a good version of Mono as far as MX is concerned. Do you have the full mono-complete package installed?

Hi Steve - it is as delivered by the Raspberry pi PIXEL upgrade instructions.

I'm just about to download a new NOOBS and start fresh.

A standard installation may not include the full Mono distribution (i.e. the mono-complete package) as required by MX.

I use 4.0.5 on mine and it's been running now for nearly three weeks straight.
