Linux Installation Guide for the RCbenchmark software:
1) Check which version of Linux you are running
Run the following command on terminal:
This displays the machine hardware name and indicates, as above, whether your system is 32-bit (“i686” or “i386”) or 64-bit (“x86_64”).
2) Download the Linux software according to your version
Important: the software will not open if you have the incorrect version.
3) Give permissions to the installer using one of the two methods (terminal or GUI)
a) Terminal method
Run the following commands in the terminal:
cd directory of installation
chmod +x RCbenchmarkGUI-1.0.0-linux-x64/x32-installer.run
b) GUI method
Right click on the application and press “Properties”
Click on the permissions tab.
Click on the checkbox
3) Start the program
Go to the installation folder. You should be able to open the RCbenchmark.desktop file as a program. If not, repeat the above steps to enable the permissions for this file. If the GUI does not appear, it is possible you used the incorrect App version (32/64 bit) for your platform.
We had reports that launching the program with sudo and –no-sandbox options is necessary on some machines.
Additionally, you may also need to grant permissions (chmod +x) to the RCbenchmark.Desktop file which is created in the installation folder, not just to the installer file.
If you have issues when connecting to the board, a full restart may be needed.
