Title: Lubuntu 21.04 - Correct Download to Install
Post by: electrosteam on June 10, 2021, 23:38:50 pm
Hi,
I have trialled CB in the past on a previous computer with Lubuntu 18.04, not sure what CB download was used.
Because of problems with the Lubuntu upgrades, I am forced to run the latest rolling upgrade, currently 21.04.

I have decided to permanently install CB, but not sure what download to use.

Because of backups being used to re-populate the folder system on the new computer, I have some CB files in various locations.
Should I remove all earlier CB remnants before starting the new install ?

Keep well,
John.

This is the Linux download page; https://cambamcnc.com/ref/ref.linux#devt

It's always a good idea to clean up remnant files so I would say yes to removing them.

Progress.

Thanks EddyCurrent,
Cleaned up the previous remnants.

Then downloaded and installed 'Ubuntu 18 based Linux/Mint19 ...' as this is listed as the 64 bit version, as for Lubuntu 21.04.
Just followed the instructions in the CamBam Home page.

It opens from the terminal script, but does not open from the icon in the Graphics category in the program selection dialog box.

Looks good, will test code generation tomorrow (it is evening in Sydney).

Presume the icon opening problem should not be too hard to track down and fix.

Keep well,
John.
