The documentation says the following:
The program requires the complete installation of Mono. You install for example with apt-get the packet mono-complete.
Until an installation packet is available at a later time the installation has to be done manually. Download the proper zip file to your PC. (http://dv4m.ham-dmr.ch) and unpack it into a directory of your choice below the home directory.
In order to gain access to the USB/serial interface the user account must become a member of the group “dialout”. Open the Console and enter
sudo gpasswd —add myusername dialout
The DV4mini program gets started by entering
mono dv4mini.exein the console or you can create a desktop icon.
The link from the manual seems dead; it redirects to a German website for the DV4 mini; it has no
.zips containing the necessary files (
dv_serial) to download, only
setup.exe installer-files that Mono won't run:
elliottcable@ham-vm ~/Downloads $ mono ./2017_12_10_setup.exe Cannot open assembly './2017_12_10_setup.exe': File does not contain a valid CIL image.
Frankly, I'm a little stuck. I'm a pretty-experienced developer and *nix user, but I've never used any Windows / Mono stuff before.
How the hell do I get my DV4mini software running on “PC-Linux?”
