Unroll 3D Model: Error loading plugin on Linux Mint 21
« on: August 03, 2023, 18:59:58 pm »
Trying to install UnRoll 3D on Linux Mint 21
When starting CamBam after loading UnRoll 3D, I get the following message,
Error loading plugin /home/mike/CamBam1.0/plugins/UnRoll.dll
Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

The plugin does show up in the Plugins drop down.
The UnRoll window opens.
But entering a Angular steps value and hitting Run a popup appears with message,
Save changes to "Untitled" yes, no, cancel.
UnRoll does not perform the unroll.


Looking through the threads the message:
Error loading plugin / home/mike/CamBam1.0/plugins/UnRoll.dll
Exception has been thrown by the Target of an invocation happens to some plugins on Linux.
The only possible fix I could find was to make sure VB library was installed.
I do have VB library and Mono installed.
As far as I can tell the complete install is correct.

Has anyone had success using UnRoll on a linux system?

Thanks
Sincerely,
MikeT

Hello

I never tested it on Linux, sorry

I do have VB library and Mono installed.

This ?

sudo apt-get install libmono-microsoft-visualbasic10.0-ci

Edit: I did some tests on Ubuntu and same problem ... this plugin is not working on Linux

Yes, sudo apt-get install libmono-microsoft-visualbasic10.0-c
I tried UnRoll on my sons Windows laptop and really liked the plugin.
But now he wants his laptop back...
I get all the hand me down stuff. Working off a 9yr old system myself.
Suppose I can wait until my son upgrades.
Thank you for the fast replies.
Sincerely,
MikeT

I have ad a quick look on my code, but unfortunately I did not see "known" functions that usually do not work with Linux ... needs more investigations and experiments ...
