I am testing the alpha version of APM Planner 2.0 running natively on Ubuntu Linux 12.04. It runs much smoother and most functions are working.
Thanks, Ralph. Keep up the good work.
are you using it with ardupilot, pixhawk or PX4 ?
Can we look forward to Raspberry Pi support???? That would make a very portable GCS
Are you going to port to MacOSX too?
The new MP is C++/QT, there is actually already a download available for OSX: http://qgroundcontrol.org/downloads
Running native Linux opens up the possibility of running it on the Pi. I've tried to run MP on the Pi, under mono, and it looks like it would take a rebuild of the source with the mono compiler.
Another similar program, QGroundControl, has been run on the Pi, but it takes about 5 minutes to get cranked up each time. Once it starts, then it limps along. See http://tinyurl.com/lrdexer .
Ralph's work on Ubuntu will open up MP to run on more than Windoze.
Why bother with a contraption based on an underpowered raspberry pi? Just get yourself a cheap four cores-2Gb ram android tablet and use andropilot or droidplanner. It even supports Bluetooth to avoid cables❗
Have the "cheap four cores-2Gb ram android tablets" gotten down to US$35 yet? 8-)
Any link to the rpm file or a source?
