New user and can't get Simple Ide to work on linux.
I have a Propeller P8X32A Quickstart board. I did some research and believe the Ide I need is the Simpleide. I use Linux Mint 20.3 as my main PC. When I tried to install Simpleide using the .deb file I got an error saying dependency is not satisfiable: libqtgui4. I was not able to get around that problem but I read on this forum that someone had gotten Simpleide to work using wine on Linux. So I downloaded the Windows version and using Play on Linux was able to get it installed and apparently working. But it keeps giving me an error that says it can't find my device on any port. Using the terminal command lsusb I can see that the device is showing up in Linux but not when I am running Simpleide under Play on Linux. I am not even sure that Simpleide is the the correct programmer for my P8X32A. But it appears to be from what I can find on the Parallax web site.
So I either need to solve the port problem and use the Windows version under Play on Linux or solve the dependency problem and use the Linux version of Simpleide. Unless someone tells me that is not even the correct program I need for programming the P8X32A board.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
