Linux newbie can't install z-agent

Post by t2tonesimone » 15 Jan 2013 14:02

Tried what little I could find to install Z-agent after downloading it using some small bits of advice from forum. Just wondered if there is a linux (Ubuntu) installation guide somewhere as I am really struggling.

I managed the sudo apt-get lidg-dev or whatever it was and can navigate to the unix folder but it says there is no such command as make. How do I compile it?

thanks

You need to install development tools

Something like this should do the job: sudo apt-get install make gcc libargtable2-dev libssl-dev

Try tu run under superuser

Try to run under superuser (root): sudo ./Run_Z-Agent.sh

This can be solved by correct permissions on port or adding youself to the group owning the ttyUSBx device.
