    Hi everyone. On fresh new sparkly MATE v21. Windows 11 on same pc – The one OK recently purchased – HP Victus i3. Had to disable secure boot to get 515 Nvidia to work.

    Any ideas how to help please and thank you?

    Does this appear to be the fix?
    I have not tried it as I am new to Linux and all of the sandbox software & hardware.

    it appears libdc1394-22-dev is superceded by libdc1394

    My recommendation is to use Linux Mint v19 or v20. By using v21, some of the software needed by Vrui has been upgraded. This could work, but Vrui has not been tested with the newer versions.

    To clarify, the Sourceforge address you shared is for the libdc1394 project. libdc1394-22-dev and libdc1394-25-dev are the Ubuntu packages made from the project code.

    Another clarification: MATE is a GUI environment running on the Linux Mint distribution. Mint uses Ubuntu as a source for additional software packages. Having these distinctions in mind may help when researching software.

    Wikipedia has good articles that can give you context for how these pieces (e.g. MATE, Mint, Ubuntu) mesh.

    Thank you Sean! Being new to Linux again I’m getting that impression.

    ( I would have deleted or edited a couple of my posts in here if possible as I kept learning. )

    Not sure if this is helpful – here’s a thread in Mint with a reply on a fix that appeared to me, being a rookie, came close to success.

    Question: which version of 20 do you recommend?

    came close to success.

    Actually, the compiling errors ou posted in the Linux Mint forum hints that there are many incompatible changes between v19 and v21 that Vrui has not been updated to handle.

    Question: which version of 20 do you recommend?

    My initial recommendation for Linux Mint v20 was based solely on libdc1394-22-dev. But there may be other changes between v19 and v20 that would cause Vrui, Kinect, and SARndbox to not build.

    As the latest recommended version is v19.3, stick to that version for now.

    Also, from reading your post on the Linux Mint forum, the KeckCAVES Github page does not seem to be actively maintained. Your best bet for help is probably this forum.

    Thank you Sean! It seems Oliver has moved on to a different school at UCLA and is running different projects.

    I, we – I’m building this with a high school teacher, hope to be able to maintain a vibrant community around this and eventually be able to add more simulations.

    Is Artie your nickname? 🙂

    We are so happy you reached out to help us. Thank you again!

    We look forward to helping maintain & build a vibrant community around this ARS platform.

    Artie the Artichoke is our school’s mascot.

    Oh my gosh. That’s great!

    My high school mascot was the …. fighting Canaries.

    Hi Sean

    It seems – I don’t have enough skills yet to know if this is the dead end – the PC Oliver recently purchased may not work with LM21 & updated VRUI.

    Curious your take. (Hopefully Oliver sees this soon to respond.)

    The short version: 19.3 & 20.1 can not see hard drive in this PC.

    This past Saturday I spend hours with a friend experienced in Linux Mint & hardware – although he uses LM in virtual machines.

    A newer update since my last post today Sean or anyone following this

    Missing 1 line of code?

    Thank you for posting the links to your Linux Mate threads, they filled in many details.

    The short version: 19.3 & 20.1 can not see hard drive in this PC.

    I see several discussions about changing the hard drive interface in BIOS to fix the missing drive on Ubuntu, et al. The following thread has one of the more explicit fixes and explanations.

    Missing 1 line of code?

    The cstddef header is included in iostream, which is included in FrameRateViewer.h. The include chain should bring in the size_t type. I built Vrui with g++ 11.2 (same version used in LM21) without that error.

    Another possible avenue with your local Linux Mint expert: use a fresh, clean LM21 and try to manually build Vrui, etc. The “Unable to locate package libdc1394-22-dev” is specific to using Build-Ubuntu.sh. Or edit Build-Ubuntu.sh to install libdc1394-25-dev instead.

    Thank YOU Sean!

    We attempted a hard drive swap with no success. Which we believe with our skills is 99% directly related to this:

    For those just seeing this thread, we are using PC Dr Oliver mentioned he bought here:

    Mot sure why. I have not been able to share the errors in the toolkit libdc1394-25-dev code swap.

    …we are using PC Dr Oliver mentioned…

    I’m a bit confused. Do you have an “HP Victus” (as you mentioned above) or an “HP Pavillion” (Oliver’s new purchase)? If a Victus, is it a desktop computer or a laptop?
