JDXi Manager - Linux Installation Instructions


As long as the JDXi Manager is work in progress I won't be able to provide a packaged version of it for Linux distros, as that would take up too much time. But you can still install the JDXi Manager and it's prerequisites manually by following the instructions here.

List of prerequisites for JDXi Manager:

On Ubuntu / Debian distros you can install the prerequisites with the following commands in a Terminal window:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install perl-tk
sudo apt-get install libconfig-simple-perl
sudo apt-get install libtime-hr-perl
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev
cpan -fi MIDI::ALSA
Please note: when running the last command (cpan -fi MIDI::ALSA) you will be prompted a few times, simply hit [Enter] each time to accept the default choices.


Then download the JDXi-Manager program: (current version: 0.23 alpha)
jdxi_manager-linux.pl (right-click 'Save Link As' to download)

You will have to make the downloaded progam file executable (chmod 555 jdxi_manager-linux.pl) and then you can run it either directly from a terminal or else by moving it into a folder which is in your PATH (for example: /usr/local/bin) and setting up a desktop startup file for it.

Here is suitable desktop startup file: JDXi_Manager.desktop
