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 prerequisite Perl libraries 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 libgd-perl
sudo apt-get install libtime-hr-perl
sudo apt-get install libwww-perl
sudo apt-get install libasound2-dev
sudo apt-get install build-essential
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: 0.28 alpha)
jdxi_manager-linux.zip

Unzip the content of the zip file into a dedicated folder and then you can run it either directly from a terminal window by launching /your/path/to/jdxi_manager.pl or else by setting up a desktop startup file for it.

Here is suitable desktop startup file: JDXi_Manager.desktop
(you will have to edit the desktop file to add the full path to where you placed the executable)

and here is the icon to go with it: jdxi32f.png
