Could you please add libps3000a as optdep? :)

I have been a lazy maintainer... but now at last I have updated picscope and the different libs to the latest version.

I have removed the dependency on mono-tools, now picoscope depends on gtk-sharp-2. Thanks for the tip MacGyver.

I have also removed the build dependency on dpkg. Thanks for the tip atreides.

I left support for i386 (32-bit) for the libs but I have not tested it.

Some instructions to get Picoscope running: You have to add your user to the group "pico" or edit the file "/etc/udev/rules.d/95-pico.rules" to give the USB device other permisions. Run "udevadm control -R" after changing udev rules.

You also need to install the libpsX000-packages matching your Picoscope.

This just doesn't work; "No suitable device found.".
Are there any extra dependencies or kernel modules one needs to install?

EDIT: libps2000 does the trick in my case: It's not a kernel module, it's some sort of a library that digs out the lowest-level USB devices from /dev.

I feel dpkg is unnecessary, I had success modifying PKGBUILD by removing dpkg dependency, 'noextract=()' and build() lines. Then adding 'tar -xvf data.tar.gz -C "${pkgdir}"'.

Same modification could be made to all picoscope related packages. Also 'webkit-sharp' instead of whole 'mono-tools' was enough dependency for me as well.

As far as I've been able to figure out, there's no actual dependency on mono-tools. mono-tools pulls in webkit-sharp, which in turn pulls in gtk-sharp-2. On my system, this is the only dependency I need to add when mono-tools is left out. Considering mono-tools pulls in half of gnome[1] in its tree, please consider trimming this dependency a bit.

[1] Yes, that's exaggeration, but still, I'd rather not pull in: art-sharp-2.24.2-4 gcr-3.20.0-1 gnome-mime-data-2.18.0-7 gnome-vfs-2.24.4-9 gnome-vfs-sharp-2.24.2-4 gvfs-1.28.2-1 libatasmart-0.19-3 libbonobo-2.32.1-4 libbonoboui-2.24.5-3 libgnome-2.32.1-6 libgnome-data-2.32.1-6 libgnome-sharp-2.24.2-4 libgnomecanvas-2.30.3-3 libgnomeui-2.24.5-2 libidl2-0.8.14-4 orbit2-2.14.19-3 udisks2-2.1.7-1 webkit-sharp-0.3-5 webkitgtk2-2.4.11-1

Please update to the latest version on the PicoScope repo (6.11.13-4r3)
It should fix the mono "IsMV Failed" problem.

Yeah I'm using the same version of mono as you. I got it working by removing the debconf dependency from libps4000a.deb, converting to pkg.tar and installing with pacman -U.

mti commented on 2016-03-27 12:36

Did you follow the recomendation to downgrade mono? The picoscope application does not work with the lastest version of mono. I use mono

Hi' i'm trying to use this with 2206A, installed the libps2000a package, and for some reason PicoScope says it cant find my scope.
I've found some test tool provided in the libps2000a package (/opt/picoscope/share/doc/libps2000a/usbtest), and it does find my scope and says that everything is configured OK (udev rule working, and I am in pico group, which gives me access to the device).
Did anyone come across this problem?

rjs02 commented on 2016-02-27 16:00

libps4000a tarball? Somehow my 4824 device was working with the 2000a driver, but out of nowhere it stopped.
