I am with a watershed conservation organization and we are rehabbing a sandbox we got from another organization. I’m up to calibrating the projector but when I enter “CalibrateProjector” in the command window the response is “command not found.” The files for the utility are in the directory so I’m not sure why they’re not being found.
I’m new to Linux and there is probably a very obvious solution but any help is appreciated.October 27, 2022 at 8:05 am #2300
Welcome to the forum.
The response means that either the utility was not created in Step 5 (was there an error?) or your entered text does not match Step 11. Make sure you follow Step 11 as it is written since the directory is an important detail.
If that does not work, please post the output of
ls -lfrom the same command window. This will show all the files in your current directory with some metadata about the files.October 28, 2022 at 10:41 am #2301
I wasn’t typing the whole directory into the command line–RawKinectViewer opened without that. Thank you!October 28, 2022 at 12:10 pm #2302
…RawKinectViewer opened without that.
I can see why you thought the directory was not needed. This is a quirk to the way the Sandbox software is installed.
RawKinectVieweris a system-wide install, while
CalibrateProjectoris only under the compiling user’s home directory.

That makes sense now. In a way this is easier b/c the previous installation was working at the time they mothballed it, which means I’m just following steps. On the other hand, I’d be getting a better understanding doing it from scratch.June 29, 2023 at 2:30 pm #2580cjjthiryParticipant
I am having the same problem. I have changed directories to that folder. The line is there but it will not work. I get “command not found.”
Not sure what to do.July 3, 2023 at 9:03 am #2582
Welcome to the forum.
Could you post a transcript of the commands you type and the output you see? The context (current directory) and specific name used to start the command are important.
I’m looking for something like the commands in Step 11″
cd ~/src/SARndbox-2.8 ./bin/CalibrateProjector -s 1024 768
But I want to see what commands you are using.July 5, 2023 at 9:41 am #2585cjjthiryParticipant
ugh. I got it to work but now the image is mirrored. The projector and the display screen match but when I put the disc over the sand, it comes in from the mirrored direction — from upper right instead of the lower right.
Clearly I have done something wrong.
