Hi,

I am using Arch Linux distribution, and it does not use deb or rpm package. There are some tricks to install deb/rpm package on Arch, but those are not recommended. Nevertheless, I have tried (using dpkg) but APP crashes on launch.

Is there an other way to install it ?

 

 

Thank you ! 🙂

Good question, not sure about that and we asked Mabula to have a look. He's very busy on trying to release the next version atm, so if you don't get an answer within a week or 2, please remind us. 🙂

@thibautflt We asked Mabula and there currently is no way to install APP other than via the deb or rpm package. Also, there are no plans to enable this at this moment, sorry.

I use Arch Linux. I install APP by downloading the .rpm package and extracting it. You will then have a folder labeled opt. Open the opt folder there is only a folder labeled AstroPixelProcessor. Copy this folder to /opt on your computer. That is all there is to it. You can then run the program using the command /opt/AstroPixelProcessor/AstroPixelProcessor.

You can also copy /opt/AstroPixelProcessor/AstroPixelProcessor.desktop to e.g. ~/.local/share/applications/ so APP will show up in your menu.
