    Hello all,

    I understood that there is a Viewport for linux beta available.
    Could somebody please share the location for this because i’m getting frustrated here running it under wine or in a VM.

    BTW i’m running Ubuntu 11.04





    I’m about to release this publicly, just finishing documentation :)



    Hi Hanno,

    Yes please, I finally received my propeller Professional dev board so i’m good to go here.

    The propeller tool works OK but under wine it’s not the most optimal config.

    Please keep me posted.






    I see the other posts to this thread are from almost a year ago. Was the linux version ever released? I tried to download it, but all I could find was an exe version. I would like to buy it, but I don’t run Windows.




    Hi Jammer,
    I did release 12Blocks for Linux, ViewPort may come someday.



    Hi Hanno,

    One of the early adopters of viewport here :)) though it’s been a while since I’ve used it.

    I wrote a long post extolling the many reasons, pleading for a Mac / Linux port … but it vanished … oh well …

    Was considering using Viewport’s openCv instead of a RaspberryPi or BeagleBone Black board.
    I had an XP box with Viewport on it die die die just when I was ready to evaluate it with my Prop. dev. board.

    Having fought with MS installs for decades, and having access to Macs and Linux boxes galore, I just don’t have the heart to attempt a windows reinstall when I can do 2 Ubuntu’s and a Fedora or two in the same time.

    All I can say is you are missing a growing market segment that Raspberry Pi, et. al, will slowly take over: academia (which has always be unix) and the scientific community (who use a lot of mach-kernal based Macs).

    Please consider it !
