Running 3d Scanner on Ubuntu



  • Looking to help out another with some searching on an issue he's having with his 3d Scanner.

    Original software was written for Ubuntu 14, but is suppose to work with release 16. However, he has not been able to get it to do so.
    The 3dScanner he is using is here, and reports per the documents that 16.04 will work.

    However - when he tries to install it, he gets:

    Err:21 http://ppa.launchpad.net/bqlabs/horus/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages
    404 Not Found
    

    He has been able to re-install Thusty 14.04, but of course that is not ideal - it's an old release.

    While I have not had the time to go through the documents completely as of yet, I thought I would go ahead and ask and see if anyone can spot the issue without to much digging.

    TIA -

    The only distro listed here shows devel, trusty, vivid and wily.

    Try using this instead.

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bqlabs/horus-dev
    sudo apt-get update
    


  • Based on the information (and no ubuntu system available atm) it looks like the repo was simply depreciated. Simply add it as @black3dynamite as said and see if it installs.



  • Also 16.04 is an old release. . . 17.04 is current.



  • sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bqlabs/horus
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install horus

    If you wanted the dev version simply change sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bqlabs/horus to sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bqlabs/horus-dev



  • I was able to get this to install on Kubuntu by simply adding the repo and following the steps provided.
