Linux casio calculator transfer program
« on: December 29, 2011, 12:41:22 pm »
Does anyone know of a calc<=>PC transfer program that is native to linux? All I can find are windows programs, which don't detect the calculator.

I don't know any for Casio calculators, sadly. Programs that are made for Windows are certainly not going to work because Windows drivers aren't compatible with Linux at all, not even if Wine is used.

Use the file address instead of just file.tar.bz, use //home/desktop/file.tar.bz

type install instead of ./configure
or use the makefile.

OK, first of all, I decided to use XI_interface-1.1 instead. I tried installing the .rpm and supposedly it installed fine, but I cant find out where. :P

EDIT:

I figured out how to run it but I get this error:

Code: [Select]
XI_interface: error while loading shared libraries: libgtk-1.2.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

I will try installing GTK. Also, I got xfer9860 to run now, but i get a problem:

Code: [Select]
flyingfisch@flyingfisch-office-computer: sudo src/xfer9860 -i
[sudo] password for flyingfisch:
--- xfer9860 v0.2.1  Copyright (C) 2007 Andreas Bertheussen and Manuel Naranjo.
[>] Setting up USB connection..
ERR: usb_set_configuration(): -110

[E] A listening device could not be found.
    Make sure it is receiving; press [ON], [MENU], [sin], [F2]


EDIT
After installing libgtk2.0 (i cant figure out how to get 1.2 but it shouldnt matter, should it?), I still get the error message when I try to run XI_interface.

Yes, and other ppl are having the same problem. There's a post about it on Ubuntuforums.org and Forty-Two just posted the same prob on CasioCalc.org (yes, the same forty-two that is a member of Cemetach) :)
