Using mplabx on 64 bit linux.

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 8:54 pm

mplabx beta 7.01 is not good with JDK7 (32bit) but works fine with 64 bit.

Mostly I copying Only the first few times I tried it I was using jdk7 which does not work.

To install mplabx on ubutnu11.04-x86_64 I did the following:

  • download 32bit Linux JDK6 update 26 (jdk-6u26-linux-i586.bin) unpacked it and moved it to $HOME/bin/jdk1.6.0_26-32bit.
  • next I created 2 scripts one for installing as root and one for running mplabx.
  • I also modified the start up

To run MPLABX you need to set jdkhome == JAVA_HOME and PATH to point to the 32bit jdk6 first then you can run mplabx.

For installing MPLABX you need to expand $HOME such that it works properly. (you’ll need to update this script to match where you put the JDK2.6 – 32bit.)

To run mplabx

export JAVA_HOME=$HOME/bin/jdk1.6.0_26-32bit
export jdkhome=$JAVA_HOME
export PATH=$HOME/bin/jdk6.0_26-32bit/bin:$HOME/bin:$PATH


To install mplabx (update with your $HOME path if copying me) run this scrip as root.
