no-vrpn-required has been merged into master. I'm not 100% sure how it's supposed to work, but I think you're starting it with

osvr_server /usr/share/osvrcore/sample-configs/osvr_server_config.oculusrift.sample.json

That file was not installed, so I added it.

Not sure if the absolute path to the display config is required, but it doesn't hurt I suppose.

Untested, because I have no DK2 anymore.

It seems to spam the console with text if you get an app running then close it.

But yeah, tracking works perfectly, tested with OSVRTrackerView and dolphin-emu-osvr-git.

Does it actually work? Last time I tried it, it always crashed when I tried to use it and there are no new commits...

I don't like autostarting it, because osvr-server it eats ~5% cpu when idling on my laptop. I think this is the bug report to track for this:

Updated to use the 'no-vrpn-required' branch, and removed VRPN dependency. Much smaller, much easier to build now!

I think we could make the OSVR server a /etc/xdg/autostart application with a bit of fiddling, make it source in /etc/osvr_server.cfg and adjust that to have a bunch of commented include statements by default.

Ah, thanks! And yes, that's probably a good idea. In all likelihood, are you still using oculus-rift-sdk-jherico-git? Some slightly different files in there might be affecting Cmake.

Maybe it would be time to figure out why this happens for you, but not for me.

By the way, I added you as Co-Maintainer to some osvr packages, so you should be able to edit the packages too.

feilen commented on 2015-09-10 04:20

Could you please add the `mv "$pkgdir/usr/lib64" "$pkgdir/usr/lib" || true` line to the package() function?

Good news, the next version of the osvr-oculus-rift thing (in the no-vrpn-required branch) will be tested against both Linux and Windows during development, and will most assuredly actually work when it's done.

feilen commented on 2015-06-02 00:01

Has the same 'lib64' problem as the other two I'm afraid.

Oh, I didn't actually compile vrpn with oculus rift support so the plugin failed with undefined reference to oculus rift functions.

vrpn then needs oculus rift headers in weird places.

So you need to first update the oculus rift sdk, then vrpn and then this package, in case you already installed it.
