Mission Planner 1.2.50+ on Ubuntu Linux with mono

Newer versions of Mission Planner  (1.2.50+ iirc) need some additional mono packages to work on Ubuntu. They're only available in Ubuntu Precise 12.04 and above though. You can install them like this:


sudo apt-get install -y mono-runtime libmono-winforms2.0-cil libmono-corlib2.0-cil libmono-system-web4.0-cil libmono-system-management4.0-cil

If you have problems seeing the serial ports, make sure you're in the dialout group:


sudo gpasswd --add $USER dialout


(you'll need to log out and back in again to be sure any group changes take effect)

    Could you type the command that you used to edit the repo?

  • Good morning,

    I running 1.2.76 with additional packages and the add $user without problems.

    However, today MP ask to update and installed 1.2.80.

    After this upgrade I couldn't start MP again. Mono failed with mono MissionPlanner.exe': No such file or directory.

    I reinstalled 1.2.76 and all working fine.

    any Idea what could be wrong???
