Do you use Ubuntu GNU/Linux distribution ? If you use the 7.10 (last version) it will be really simple to add support for our softwares.

Our LiveDVD is needed mostly for peoples who do not know anything about GNU/Linux.

The manual (PDF) was written by somebody outside the company. (Contribution) And this manual is about 333 model. So it's outdated. The 1.5.1 CD is outdated (on this CD MPlayer is compatible with up to 3MP, not 5MP) and on sourceforge you got files to recompile our CD from the original Knoppix.

Officially Elphel propose only sources on and the Knoppix based DVD 2.0

The easy way to install our softwares on a Ubuntu (the way i do) is to add those 2 lines to your /etc/apt/sources.list :

deb gutsy main
deb-src gutsy main

then do:

apt-get update
apt-get install mplayer vlc elphelogm

That's it.

Feel free to contribute providing documentation on our wiki. We always welcome contributions.

Thanks Alexandre, Great advice! We will try it on Ubuntu (privately). I have 7.10.

However, due to Microsoft's dominatin in the Dutch educatinal market, virtually all Duthc primary schools use Windows on their desktop. Even our school cannot escape from it. That's why we choose Elphel. Becasue of it is independent from any OS. Dirk
