Samson SDK failed to install
I downloaded and tried to install SAMSON SDK.
It failed claiming "no version is available for this platform".
On the terminal I have:
bomble@Lilas ~/Téléchargements $ ./SAMSON-Developer-Setup.run Verifying archive integrity... All good. Uncompressing SAMSON Developer Software Package 100% saving context launching SAMSON_INSTALLER QApplication: invalid style override passed, ignoring it. root Segmentation fault (core dumped) restoring context
I run on linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon 64-bit
Is SAMSON SDK not available for linux users?
hum I don't have the last version of qt, could it be that?
Dear @Laëtitia ,
Sorry for the failed installation.
SAMSON SDK is available on Linux, Mac, and Windows. I am currently using it on Ubuntu 16.04.
Could you, please, check the requirements listed in the SAMSON SDK Installation Instructions. Do you have a proper gcc, cmake, and Qt installed?
Dear @Laëtitia ,
It should not be the last version of Qt. SAMSON SDK 0.7.0 uses Qt 5.9.3. You will find a link in the SAMSON SDK Installation Instructions.
ok I have Qt 5.5.1, I'll install 5.9.3 and see. Thanks
well it was not that.... but I found a solution, it wanted to be executed with sudo ?!
No, it is not necessary to install it with sudo. You need to have a proper version of gcc, cmake and Qt installed. Paths to Qt should be added to your environment variables (bashrc):
export QT5_CMAKE_INCLUDE_DIR=YourQtPath/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/lib/cmake/ export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=YourQtPath/Qt5.9.3/5.9.3/gcc_64/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
The SAMSON SDK installer should be made executable:
chmod +x SAMSON-Developer-Setup.run ./SAMSON-Developer-Setup.run
I've got everything installed and compiled etc...
Thanks for your help!
Great! You can check the tutorial on building a SAMSON Element on Linux.
Feel free to ask questions if you experience any problems!
