Cumulus MX on a Pi 3

Postby desduf » Tue Aug 22, 2017 12:27 pm

Hi everyone. I am new here with no experience with Pi 3. Just have used Cumulus 1 so far without any problems. As I was given a Pi 3 for a father's day gift. I thought I should make use of it. I think I have installed all the necessary software's. Have copied Cumulus MX to my home folder on the Pi 3. But when I run the command sudo mono Cumulus MX.exe I get the result cannot open assembly 'Cumulus MX.exe' : No such file or directory. Any help would be appreciated. Desmond

Try installing and running this script viewtopic.php?f=27&t=13767#p107130

It will check permissions and that the install is correct, and is very useful for sorting out problems, plus it has a good set of install instructions.

Did you install Mono?

With both Jessie and now Stretch, Mono is the only extra software needed to run Cumulus MX.

To install:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install mono-complete

Have you changed directory to the Cumulus directory before issuing the command?

Hi again yes I have installed mono. On my main folder screen I can see /home/pi/CumulusMX.
I had thought it was because I did not change directory. But on cd /CumulusMX I still get no such file or directory. I did try run the script viewtopic.php?f=27&t=13767#p107130, I get command not found. I am sure it something simple, but I'am at loss. Desmond

After you have changed to the /home/pi/CumulusMX directory, please show the result of the commands 'pwd' and 'ls -al'

That looks correct...you'll need to set the station type and the station port (Pi3 doesn't use COM; it will likely be something like /dev/ttyUSB0 or the like).

The script mentioned earlier is a good one to use as it will run CMX more or less as a service and not tie the terminal up as CMX does in raw command line mode.

And there is no on screen display as you would have been used to in Cumulus 1.x.x, In order to see the station output (and as well to set it up) you need to use your web browser and browse to http://computername:8998 where computername is the name of your pi (it appears in this case to be raspberrypi so try http://raspberrypi:8998).

Hi all.

I have tre same issue when I switch on the system. The R PI never connect with my PCE station, I have always the same message "Fine Offset station not found" and I think the problem is wrong communication port.
I also did the installation of the library libudev.so.0 but still the same issue...
I checked Cumulus.ini and there is a communication setting and is setted to COM0. I think this is the problem.

When I type sudo mono CumulusMX.exe I have the response below. We can see one message "Not supported". I dont's have any idea about what is talking about but I think this is not good.


Can somebody help please?
