Do any of you guys program their stamps from Linux?

I've found a project on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/projects/bstamp/) that looks like it should do the trick.

Anything to avoid using my wife's Windows computer! She would have a field day bagging out Linux if I "HAD" to use her PC to develop on. Please, let me know I can use Linux instead! http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

Use "wine" for linux, or "cedega", then load up the stamp editor.....

Hi again Robert!

I've never had much success with wine. But anything is better than putting up with my wife slagging off Linux! http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/wink.gif

Set up DSL or PUPPY on an older 350mhz PII or PIII with 128/256m ram...http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/jumpin.gif
With the right applications, you can do EVERYTHING you can do with Windows in a home or office enviroment, and on an older lower cost machine!!!! http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/yeah.gif

Robert,

I'm currently running Ubuntu Linux on an old 133MHz Pentium box with 64MB of RAM and 4GB of HD. Headless, minus X windows it runs beautifully. The only hassles are the fact that it makes fan noise, takes up space under the desk and for some REALLY WEIRD reason decides ALL the pins on the parallel port should go to zero volts every morning at exactly 7:34 am! This is the signal for my sprinkler interface to turn on every zone! Fortunately I have a watchdog process that turns off sprinklers if it finds them turned on and no sprinkler process is running.

Moving the control function to a stamp module will solve all these problems. http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/smile.gif

But I'd still like to be able to program the Stamp from my Linux (Ubuntu) laptop. I'll give wine a try - what can go wrong!? http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/turn.gif
