Reprap Host Software README Date: DATE Author: Jonathan Marsden Version: RELEASE This is an attempt at a quick package of the Reprap host software. It should run on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh. CHANGES: Several bugs have been fixed since the last release, though plenty remain, as usual! Also, the software is now run so it can find the libraries it needs at a fixed location (/usr/share/java in Linux, %programfiles%\Java\shared in Windows). This change is made in preparation for more automated installation, also means the zip file needs to be unpacked and then its contents moved to a fixed location: /usr/lib/reprap/ # For Linux or C:\Program Files\Reprap # For Windows So that (for example) you will have a file /usr/lib/reprap/reprap.jar or C:\Program Files\Reprap\Reprap.jar If you need to install it somewhere else, edit the reprap-host or reprap-host.bat file appropriately. DOCUMENTATION: See http://www.reprap.org for project details. See http://www.reprap.org/bin/view/Main/DriverSoftware for the closest thing we have to a user manual for this host software at this stage. Please use http://forums.reprap.org to ask about this package. The Software forum is probably the right place to ask. NOTES: (1) You need a working Java 1.5.0 or later JRE to run this. (2) You need to manually install the Java3D libraries. (3) You need to manually install the rxtx libraries ( http://www.rxtx.org ) (4) You need to manually install the .jar file from j3d.org, which you can download from http://reprap.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/*checkout*/reprap/trunk/reprap/host/lib/j3d-org-java3d-all.jar until we have a better idea of where this can be obtained! KNOWN BUGS: (1) This software still uses too much memory, but is a lot better than it used to be. (2) Installing the libraries by hand is a bit awkward. (3) Probably many other bugs, less serious than (1) above! See http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=159590 for more. (4) This package isn't a nice friendly installer. One is planned...!
