CT on Ubuntu 16.04 armhf


We test Lab CodeTyphon 6.10 on Ubuntu armhf

Ubuntu MATE is a stable, easy-to-use operating system with a configurable desktop environment. It is ideal for those who want the most out of their computers and prefer a traditional desktop metaphor. With modest hardware requirements it is suitable for modern workstations, single board computers and older hardware alike. Ubuntu MATE makes modern computers fast and old computers usable.

It's one of our LAB Reference OSes (from 01-02-2019 our LAB Switch to Raspbian OS)

Raspberry Pi 3 Model B is the latest version of the circuit-board computer that caused such a fuss in 2012.
This is the most powerful version. To some this may seem the sort of annual refresh from your favourite phone makers.
However, in adding greater power and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth to the Pi without increasing the price, it's now a more versatile "all-in-one" board. For almost everyone, it’s clearly the best Pi yet.

System: Micro level PC  (Raspberry Pi 3 Model B) with 1CPU (4 cores) / 1 Gbyte RAM / 16 Gbytes Micro-SD / 1920x1080 pixels Monitor
OS : Ubuntu 16.04 MATE armhf (ubuntu-mate-16.04.2-desktop-armhf-raspberry-pi.img.xz)






1. OS things and stuff..

We use 16 Gbytes microSD for this test (SanDisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Class 10 U1)

We must enable swapfile to prevent ‘out of memory’ during compilation.
Install dphys-swapfile (dynamic swap space)
in a terminal exec

sudo apt-get install -y dphys-swapfile


Start dphys-swapfile service
in a terminal exec

sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile start


After dphys-swapfile installation your Pi3 will have 1.8 GBytes swapfile.

If NOT, set to dphys-swapfile configuration file CONF_SWAPSIZE = 1800 MBytes

 sudo nano /etc/dphys-swapfile

and set:


Restart dphys-swapfile

sudo /etc/init.d/dphys-swapfile restart




2. Preparation-Give "sudo" root privileges

Open a terminal and exec

sudo nano /etc/sudoers


add at the end of /etc/sudoers the line


Ctl-X to exit and Y to save



3. Download-Unzip-Install

Download CodeTyphonIns.zip and unzip to your home directory


Open a terminal, and go to new CodeTyphonIns directory

cd CodeTyphonIns

Start CodeTyphon Installation with command

sh ./install.sh


Give zero "0" to Install CodeTyphon




4. Setup and Build

After CT install you can start CTCenter or to continue with the open terminal

It's the first installation of CodeTyphon on this Micro PC, so first we install "system libraries", select "0".


Select "8" to build all...




5. Finally


CTCenter and Typhon32 IDE




6. Libraries tests



OpenGL tests






Fpgui platform tests
