Dear community,


i want to install this ide on MX - Linux.


the uPyCraft IDE .. guess i can use this tutorial:

LINK. https://randomnerdtutorials.com/install ... tructions/
Downloading uPyCraft IDE for Linux Ubuntu 16.04
Click here to download uPyCraft IDE for Linux Ubuntu 16.04 or go to this
link https://randomnerdtutorials.com/uPyCraftLinux.
Open your Terminal window, navigate to your Downloads folder and list all the files:
see the code

Code: Select all

$ cd Downloads
$ ls -l
  uPyCraft_linux_V1.X
and then....
You should have a similar file (uPyCraft_linux_V1.X) in your Downloads folder. You need to make that file executable with the following command:
see the code

Code: Select all

$ chmod +x uPyCraft_linux_V1.X
and then
Then, to open/run the uPyCraft IDE software, type the next command:
see the piece of code:

Code: Select all

$ ./uPyCraft_linux_V1.X
love to hear from you

Hi Apollodriver,

I'd love to help you out here, but you need to provide more information. Personally, I am not familiar with MX Linux, but a quick google search shows its Debian based, so the tutorial you posted should be pretty similar to how you would install it.

Could you perhaps explain what issues you ran into during this process?

@apollodriver The document you cite includes this note
IMPORTANT: at the time of writing this guide, uPyCraft IDE is only tested on Linux Ubuntu 16.04. If you want to run it on a different Ubuntu version or Linux distribution, we recommend using uPyCraft IDE source code and compile the software yourself.
I suggest you try that approach.
