7i96 Configuration Tool
Tested on Debian 10, no other OS is supported but it should work on other Debian type OS’s.
Requires Python 3.6 or newer to work.
I now have a Debian deb for installing 7i96!!!
Download the deb
Or use wget from a terminal
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 7i96 Configuration tool will show up in the Applications > Other menu otherwise it will be in the CNC menu.
To flash firmware to the 7i96 you need to install mesaflash from the LinuxCNC repository.
To uninstall the 7i96 Configuration Tool right click on the .deb file and open with Gdebi and select Remove Package or sudo apt remove 7i96.
To upgrade the 7i96 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.
