<Solved> Any Link software on Ubuntu?
« on: July 29, 2011, 07:53:45 am »
Hey all, I wonder are there any link softwares for 89 and NSprie on Ubuntu?
And...recently I got my new TI-89 titanium and my younger brother got his new TI-NSpire CX CAS.  ;D
We bought them from TI China Agent. TI-89 titanium cost 1550 RMB and CX CAS cost 1750 RMB. Aren't they more expensive than the prices in western country? Though they are all made in China.. :P

Yes, there is software named "tilp". However the package in the ubuntu repo is a bit outdated, so you must install it from source. But that isn't so hard, here is how to do it:

First download this script: http://lpg.ticalc.org/prj_tilp/download/install_tilp.sh
Copy it to your home directory ("/home/northern_snow")
Open a terminal (Applications --> Accessories -->Terminal)
Run this:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt-get install subversion autoconf automake libtool libglib2.0-dev zlib1g-dev libusb-dev libgtk2.0-dev libglade2-dev libsdl1.2-dev gettext bison flex groff texinfo xdg-utils libarchive2-dev intltoolThis will install all the dependencies to compile tilp.
Then run this:
Code: [Select]
chmod +x ./install_tilp.sh
sudo ./install_tilp.sh
You will be asked for your password, type it (it's normal that you don't see it while typing).
Then wait for the installation to finish.

When it's done (without any errors) you have successfully installed and compiled tilp. To use tilp just run "sudo tilp" in a terminal.

Edit: updated for the latest version of TiLP

What, RMB?

Either way, the instructions given by Jim are correct for installing TILP on Ubuntu.

RMB is Chinese yuan ...
and 1750 Chinese yuan = 190.474639 Euros.

Looks to me like its more expensive with you.
