Open a terminal (Application menu : Accessory > Terminal), where you
We suppose we are in your prefered directory. For you it is probably
First, you donwload the program's archive in your prefered "/path/
$ mkdir Download
Now you go in your prefered work directory (for me it is called
$ cd /path/Travail
First thing to do is to check if README or INSTALL files exist, and
$ ls -l
Now you know what to do. First you check the required module are
$ lsmod | grep parport
If you get something like that, it's ok. You can compile.
You may get this kind of error :
gcc -fPIC -Wall usb-driver.c -o libusb-driver.so -ldl -lusb -lpthread -
It's because you have not installed one of the required libusb and
$ sudo apt-get install libusb-dev
Now you can retry the compilation.
This time, if everything goes right, you can try impact :) As
$ export LD_PRELOAD=/path/Travail/usb-driver/libusb-driver.so
Now, you can run impact. But you may get an error :
Can't open /dev/parport0: Permission denied
It means you have not the required right on the /dev/parport0 device.
$ ls -l /dev/parport0
A fast work arround solution is to change the owner of this device :
Before retrying to program a device with impact, it may be necessary
$ impact -batch
> setMode -bscanNow, you can retry to program a device with impact. This was my "step
by step" personnal log.
