This is the most simple way to install the simulator (it installs all related packages).
Currently packages are distributed for
Ubuntu 7.10 (gutsy), and
We are looking for new packages maintainers, if you have another distribution and you want to be the maintainer in charge of it contact us.
For Fedora users
Follow the procedure explained in the Sources paragraph below.
For Ubuntu users
- In file
add the following lines either by editing it manually, or using the synaptic :
deb http://sourceforge.net/projects/mgengine/packages/[gutsy, jaunty] deb http://cycabtk.gforge.inria.fr/downloads/ubuntu [gutsy, jaunty] main
- Refresh the list of available packages :
the synaptic button "refresh"
- or typing in your shell
sudo apt-get clean
apt-get install mgengine-dev mgengine-doc
apt-get install cycabtk-applications cycabtk-simulator cycabtk-structures-dev cycabtk-utils cycabtk-webplugins hugr hugr-iplimage hugroscope inria-ra-outdoor
- For the Cycab Toolkit sources, you can download and compile the sources available at the INRIA GForge Cycab ToolKit project on the “Files” tab.
You should download
Once downloaded, you should :
- Check the README file for more up-to-date compilations instructions.
- Read either the “Getting started” page, or the Howto-s to learn how to write your own application.
- For a direct access to the release files for mgengine R2 version et cycabtk 2.1: go to http://gforge.inria.fr/projects/cycabtk
After the installation, you should execute those scripts:
initInriaOutdoor.py, installed by the inria-ra-outdoor package.
- This script initializes mgengine config files and sets the paths to Inria outdoor data and/or cycabtk actors.
initHugrwebPlugins.py, installed by cycabtk-hugrwebplugins package.
- This script installs a file to directory
that indicates the paths to the hugrweb plugins.
Note : You may have to change one variable in your
There is no simple way to determine the path to
Vera.tff font file, so you may have to edit the value of
osd_font variable (on fedora, for example) before executing the script (it's a python file).
Here is the package dependencies graph, to help you understand the dependencies between modules used in Cycab Toolkit.
- In purple, you can see the packages which can be found on the standard repository of popular linux distributions.
- In blue, the packages you will get downloading the Cycab Toolkit packages.
