Installing

7i95 Configuration Tool

Note

Tested on Debian 10, no other OS is supported but it should work on other Debian type OS’s.

Note

Requires Python 3.6 or newer to work.

I now have a Debian deb for installing 7i95!!!

Download the deb

Or use wget from a terminal

wget https://github.com/jethornton/7i95/raw/master/7i95_0.1.1_all.deb

If you get bash: wget: command not found you can install it from a terminal with

sudo apt install wget

Check the readme.md file for the latest deb and md5sum.

Open the File Manager and right click on the file and open with Gdebi then install.

If you don’t have Gdebi installed you can install it from a terminal

sudo apt install gdebi

If you don’t have LinuxCNC installed then the 7i95 Configuration tool will show up in the Applications > Other menu otherwise it will be in the CNC menu.

To flash firmware to the 7i95 you need to install mesaflash from the LinuxCNC repository.

To uninstall the 7i95 Configuration Tool right click on the .deb file and open with Gdebi and select Remove Package.

To upgrade the 7i95 Configuration Tool delete the .deb file and download a fresh copy then right click on the .deb file and open with Gdebi and select Reinstall Package.
