Bash on Ubuntu on Windows 10 for tmk build

You can build tmk_keyboard firmware with Bash on Windows.

NOTE: dfu-programmer doesn't work in Ubuntu on Windows 10 :( at this time at least. You can not flash your microcontroller inside ubuntu unfotunately. You need Windows native tool like Atmel FLIP or dfu-programmer to program microcontroller.

How to enable it

Install tools

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get upgrade
$ sudo apt-get install -y git unzip build-essential
$ sudo apt-get install -y make gcc-avr avr-libc binutils-avr dfu-programmer
$ sudo apt-get install -y binutils-arm-none-eabi gcc-arm-none-eabi libnewlib-arm-none-eabi libstdc++-arm-none-eabi-newlib dfu-util

How to build tmk

Get source codes from github and place under your home folder.

$ cd /mnt/c/Users/<yourname>
$ git clone https://github.com/tmk/tmk_keyboard.git

And build firmware, for example.

$ cd tmk_keyboard/keyboard/hhkb
$ make

You can access the firmware under home folder through Explorer.

Ubuntu files

You can access all files on ubuntu under this holder.

C:\Users\<yourname>\AppData\Local\lxss\

But the holder is invisible from Explorer, you can have to type the path directly in address bar.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
