How to uQLx on RPi

Postby Ruptor » Thu Jul 09, 2020 3:41 pm

More stupid operating system questions I am afraid. I downloaded the RPi uQLx, followed the instructions to detar it that seemed to work, copied the Koenig config to home and run to get segmentation error. I have probably done something wrong but don't ask me what. Any ideas?
I am trying to run it on a zero if that makes any difference.
Is it Koenig or Konig?

Where did you download from? And what is the Koenig file you mention. I have a couple of Pi Zeros, I might be able to test.

Cheers,
Norm.

Hi

I did get uQLx to run on a RPi - it was however a Rpi 3 & that was 4 years ago - see post http://qlheaven.blogspot.com/2016/03/uqlx-on-rpi3.html

But I have no idea about a Koenig file.

Cheers

Hi,

Why not compile sQLux on the RPI.

I have a spare RPI 3B, so could give it a try...


Regards,

Derek

Dilwyn site and the config.txt files come out with the tar when unzipped.

Its the blokes name that wrote the instructions. Urs Konig or Koenig.

I can't even get a ready made system with simple instructions to work so you are not suggesting I should compile something from sources are you? :lol: I don't understand why there are so many ways with different problems to do the same thing. Wouldn't it make sense for everybody to work on the same thing and get one perfect emulator?
Is nobody using the RPi?

The instructions say "3. Now you need to create a .uqlxrc configuration file (important the filename must start with a .)" but your blog implies the file shouldn't be so. :?

The file is indeed .uqlxrc, it must start with a dot, and one is supplied in the zip file.

On the Pi, do ls -a to see hidden files, those which start with a dot. That's "ell ess minus a" in case fonts cause problems.

You can "cat .uqlxrc" or, worse, "nano .uqlxrc" if necessary.

Cheers,
Norm.

Thanks but I tried the file with and without a dot and still get segmentation error. :(
The export command should also be in lower case not as in instructions. :roll:

If I have done everything correctly according to the instruction, which is not very likely, then the only change is Rasbpian that they now call RPiOS.

The Pi Zero is Arm 11, apparently. Maybe the Arm 7, 8 or 9 versions don't work? When I get time, I'll see what I can find out. I have Pi 1 (256RAMs), Pi 2, 3 and 4 plus a few zeros.

Cheers,
Norm.
