RE: Linux and HP Prime
I want to mention that I'm very interested in running the VC and the connectivity kit on Linux, because it is my work OS. I usually only install final releases, though, no beta versions, and hope a stable version will be out some day.

RE: Linux and HP Prime
Attempts to move toward more GNU/Linux support would certainly be appreciated, and I'd be willing to play around with a test build a little bit. I too overlooked this news, probably in part because I'm generally terrible about overlooking things despite my best efforts anyway Smile, but also because I've been so busy with other projects that I tend to skim through things on this forum very quickly. But maybe it's also just that apparently there wasn't a whole lot of noise about the fact that there was a Linux build. To be fair, the post linked above does mention “Linux” in the title, but it also looks so much like the standard-fare general-platform beta software threads I often see that I just didn't happen to notice the addition.

Hi,

It's amazing that you put it out! If this is the HP_Prime_Virtual_Calculator preview for Linux, there is unfortunately an issue with it, and it's the fault of AppImage which was supposed to work everywhere, but guess what, they made a bug.

This issue here prevents me from running it:
https://github.com/AppImage/AppImageUpdate/issues/85

And they say the solution should be to recreate it with the latest AppImage version as far as I understand. Something about the way some package related to fonts (libfontconfig) is included.

Is it an option to fix this?

Also, can this virtual calculator communicate to a real one with USB in Linux?

Thanks Smile

That's the job of the ConnKit, not the Virtual Prime. The Virtual Prime and a real, physical Prime can both communicate with the ConnKit and you can transfer data between them that way.

RE: Linux and HP Prime
Hello,

I also overlooked the linux tech preview.
Now I downloaded the Appimage but I can not start it, it says that the 60 days trial period is gone...

Is it possible to reactivate it somehow so that I can test it?
I also use only linux and every time I need the virtual calculator to save a screenshot or the CnnKit I have to switch to a windows machine.
By the way are there plans to have a linux Appimage for the ConnKit ?

Thank you very much for the answer and for the effort done for the linux users
