Install tools on linux


#1

Product: Linux tools, muse 2014
Version: museresearchtools-3.4.2-linux-installer.run
Platform: Ubuntu 16.04, KDE Neon

Description: It is not possible to install the research tools. Downloading the installation file works, but installation fails.

Expected behaviour: proper installation

Actual behaviour: does nothing - not even an error message.

Steps to reproduce:
Download museresearchtools-3.4.2-linux-installer.run
open Terminal
go to download folder
type: chmod +x museresearchtools-3.4.2-linux-installer.run
type: ./museresearchtools-3.4.2-linux-installer.run

What am I doing wrong?
Thank you.

Same issue here.

Have you found a solution?


#3

Hi
Thanx for the detailed description.
I have the same issue on Ubuntu 16.04


#4

is the problem solved? I have the same issue…


#6

I have same problem…I am using 64bit Ubuntu, if it was 32bit, Linux tools works?


#7

I am having the same problem. I am working on a project for school and really really need to get this up and running! Is there a solution yet or is there a workaround of some kind that you guys can provide?? Does intelliPi work? It appears to be way more complicated than the other strategies and I don’t want to commit the time into building it without the assurnace that it will work since the learning curve is much steeper. I many need to purchase from another company since it appears that a lot of the developers forum has been abandoned by you guys. I realize your’re launching a new product, but c’mon.

I was able to get the installer to work with the above commands. But unable to access the actual tools.

Managed to get muse-io working !

Steps:

  1. Download and Install Virtualbox from here:
  1. Install Virtualbox extensions pack
  • from the same page above
  • this adds support for USB 2 and 3 which you’ll need if you have a bluetooth dongle
  1. disable Bluetooth in host

  2. add host user to virtualbox user group:

  1. Install Ubuntu 14.04 32 bit
  • probably Ubuntu 16.04 32 bit also works
  • Ubuntu 18.04 64 bit did not work, probably NO 64 bit version of Linux will work
  1. install museresearchtools-3.4.2-linux-installer.run

  2. Then connect to Muse using Guest bluetooth and note the MAC address

  3. then run muse-io

muse-io --device <MAC address from guest bluetooth settings panel>

Evidence: !

muse-io

NOTES:

  • the above worked because we used a Ubuntu 14.04 32bit
  • wasn’t able to get it working on Ubuntu 16.04 32bit because of liblsl issue.
  • also wasn’t able to get the muse-lab.jar file to work due to framebuffer error
    • most likely will have to figure out how to stream from muse-io on guest to muse-player on host
    • requires figuring out the OSC and liblsl protocols I think
