I by no means proclaim to be an expert at Linux but know enough to have gotten this fare. I’m experimenting with getting a vision client launching on a miniature industrial PC that will display a client. Im using Ignition 8.1. Its a headless server, all commands no GUI.
I have installed an ignition gateway on the machine and that went well, its configured an working but when i try to run visionclientlauncher.sh nothing happens.
On my linux machine I created a folder called called ignition. home/user/ignition. I went onto my windows machine and downloaded the tar.gz for Linux vision client. Copied from USB and placed in the ignition folder.
On the linux machine i extracted the tar and was left with the folder “visionclientlauncher”.
Not 100% sure on deploying a remote linux client but i just followed the windows instruction but swapped the .exe for a .sn file. I created a client in windows that works and connects to my SCADA network and called it “Menz”
inside the linux folder /visionclientlauncher/app i pasted the jre folder and menz.json. I did the chmod command to make it an executable but when i give either command
./visionclientlauncher.sh application=Menz window.mode = fullscreen screen = 0
It just does nothing. Just moves to the next command line, no errors When i use the command ls i do see the visionclientlauncher.sh file in the directory.
What am i doing wrong?
