Use something more light weight to play Vixen sequence files back than a laptop capable of running .NET software required for Vixen. The plan is to have this always working on Ubuntu and Chumby. It is likely to work on most flavors of linux, not just Ubuntu and the custom rolled Chumby.


  • GNU Compiler Collection (gcc) - To compile the code
  • GNU Make - To build the code
  • TinyXml - To parse vixen's xml
  • libresolv - For the base64 decode of event data


Currently the installation is simply a compile, no autoconf is used, the GNU makefile is static and hard-coded, so simply running "make" should produce a binary called 'bahchumbug' that can be run. Currently it doesn't do any option parsing and will simply look for a file called "text.vix" in the current directory and will only attempt to open/use /dev/ttyUSB0. These are among the many things that still need to be coded up to work.


Implementation details will go here if things ever get complicated, but for now, simply look at the code, there's not a lot of it, and it should all be simple and commented.
