Build 785 is uploaded to the files area https://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/documents

Main changes

* The linux binaries are built with symbols exported. This means you can Lua modules in .so files from chdkptp
* The lua-signal module is included with linux builds. This is not currently used by default, it's mostly there to support @manoweb's multilapse script. There are some quirks limitations with this module, the main one being it does not work correctly if chdkptp is waiting for input with readline.
* The shoot command now allows you to specify file download names, similar to the imdl command using shoot -dl=<substitution pattern>
* remoteshoot and rsint now treat the filename as a substitution string if it contains a $ (if you really want a $ in your filename, you can use -nosubst)
* shoot, rs and rsint can number files sequentially for each shot taken using the ${shotseq} substitution. So if you use rs ${shotseq}${ext} repeatedly, you'll get 0001.jpg, 0002.jpg etc. You can set the starting number with -seq=n.
* The imdl command and multicam download_images commands can also use ${shotseq}, so you can download your images as a continuous numbered sequence independent of what the camera used.
* Multicam now has preliminary support for hardware remote triggering, using usb_pwr_sync=true in mc:shoot()
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Awesome,
Thanks heaps Reyalp.
I'm finally testing my whole rig today to see how long the batteries will run.
Cheers

I am having trouble getting chdkptp to run in Ubuntu. I have it running on one of my Ubuntu 12.04 machines. But I can't seem to get it to run on any of my other Ubuntu machines. I have several and depending on the hardware they have various builds of Ubuntu running. Some 12.04 32bit some 16.04 32 and 64 bit. I was trying to stay uniform with r735 but I have downloaded r795 and I get the same results. When I click on things, including sh files, it just spins. I tried in Terminal too, no luck. In terminal it tells me the file I asked to run doesn't exist, yet an ls shows that it is there. I have checked permissions of the files. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? thanks
John

If you can give the specific output from starting it in a terminal, that would be helpful.

In any case, you must run either chdkptp.sh (for terminal only CLI interface) or chdkptp_gui.sh (for the GUI). Running the binary (chdkptp or chdkptp_gui) will not work.

Older versions had a bug in the .sh file, which could cause it to fail with a "not found" type error in some case.

r795 works for me on 64 bit Ubuntu 16.04 starting the .sh file from a terminal window.

Double clicking in the file manager just opens it in gvim. Going to edit->preferences->Behavior and setting "Executable Text Files" to "ask each time" allows me to run it by double clicking.

I googled libusb-0.1.so.4 and found where it lives and it is in my system
this is where I found it: /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
Not sure if I am barking up the right tree.

FWIW, you should not need to run chdkptp as root, just starting as a regular user should be fine. However, running it with sudo also worked for me.

The libusb-0.1 .so is provided by the libusb-0.1 package. On my system, the .so is found correctly and is at /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu. Make sure this package is installed, if it's not you might just be seeing an old symlink or something.

can you post the output of
Code: [Select]
ldd chdkptp
and
Code: [Select]
ls -l /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libusb*

As far as sudo goes. I am a bit new to Ubuntu so if something doesn't work it gets sudo at the front. Most of the time it helps. :D

I noticed that when I plug the camera in the OS does not see it. All my other Ubuntu machines do. I don't think this has anything to do with chdkptp. I will reload the OS tomorrow and try again. I will let you know what happens. Thanks for trying. I really appreciate it.
John
