    Default Girder 6 on Raspberry Pi

    Girder 6 for Raspberry Pi Linux.


    1. Install Debian Jessie Raspbian image available from here

    2. Add the Promixis Debian Jessie repo to your sources.list. You can do this by saving the attached file (promixis.list) to your /etc/apt/sources.list.d directory. Or by saving the following line to /etc/apt/sources.list.d/promixis.list

    deb jessie main
    3. Import the Promixis signing key

    wget -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    3. As root type apt-get update

    4. As root type apt-get install girder


    Girder can be run as a service or with the full front-end. Typically you'll want to run only the back-end on the R-Pi and use a different computer to run the front-end. To start the back-end only run ./Girder6Service in the /opt/girder directory. Note that you'll need to run the license app for each user that needs Girder on your Linux system.

    Alternatively you can use the /etc/init.d/girder script to start and stop Girder.

    To run the front-end start x, open a xterm, go to /opt/girder and type ./Girder6.

    Staying up to date

    To update to the latest version of Girder simply type

    apt-get update
    apt-get upgrade

    PIR-1 and PIR-4
    On Debian Linux USB HID devices like the PIR-1 and PIR-4 are by default only accessibly by root. Look at the post below to find out how to give other users access as well:


    See the Windows post for changes.
    September 24, 2014 switched to signed repo and official Debian repo structure.
    September 30, 2014. Fixed HOME setting for init.d launched backend. Previously HOME Was not set causing the init.d launched backend to store it's settings in /.config/... this led to many a confusion. The new build fixes this. This however also means that if you have already configured the init.d backend you have to move the /.config to /root/.config and /.local/share/Promixis to /root/.local/share/Promixis
