myCNC for Ubuntu 22.04

The myCNC software can now be installed on Ubuntu 22.04 LTS.

To launch myCNC on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 22.04, follow the steps below:

1) Install myCNC by running the installation script: http://docs.pv-automation.com/mycnc/install_mycnc_ubuntu
2) Install the libcdr library to open CDR files via

sudo apt install libcdr-dev

3) The Ubuntu install has a newer OpenCV library than is currently used by myCNC (as of November 2022). We'll need to link the 4.2 version of this library instead of the 4.5:

cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

sudo ln -s libopencv_videoio.so libopencv_videoio.so.4.2

sudo ln -s libopencv_core.so libopencv_core.so.4.2

sudo ln -s libopencv_imgproc.so libopencv_imgproc.so.4.2

This should complete the installation process. Do not hesitate to reach out to our Support team should any questions arise.
