Ha, managed to miss this thread completely over the last week while setting up a pi to do 3458A data logging. Oops.

As for linux-gpib, I agree that it's been a little involved to get setup. I did a bit of work over the weekend and have made Debian packages for the kernel module and userspace library. I need to make one for the firmware and then do a bit of polishing, but it should be available in the next Debian and Ubuntu releases through apt. Rasbian builds their packages from the Debian repo but since this has a kernel module I'm guessing there'll be some additional work needed.

In the meanwhile I'm in the middle of pushing the packages to a PPA so it will be available for at least 16.04 onwards. The link below should work in the next day or so.

After image recovery run
Code: [Select]
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/PlesaEEVBlog/RPi_LogNut/master/Install_GPIB_Support.sh | sudo bashFor settng web and Samba
Code: [Select]
curl https://raw.githubusercontent.com/PlesaEEVBlog/RPi_LogNut/master/Web_Samba.sh | sudo bash
Supported interfaces are Agilent 82357B, National Instruments NI GPIB-USB-HS and their clones eg. Keithley ones.Also the Ethernet GPIB gateway Agilent E5810A/B are supported and tested.
On github there are www and Python folders with multiple examples with D3.js and C3.js ( easier for configuration)

Only BME280 and DS18S20 supported, but adding support will be easy.
Plesa, Thank you for you hard work to make this project working.
I prepare sdcard today and there is some changes:
1. Current version of raspbian is 2019-04-08-raspbian-stretch with kernel 4.14.98+
2. linux-gpib-4.0.4 is not available any more. Please, update your script Install_GPIB_Support.sh to download  https://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/linux-gpib/linux-gpib%20for%203.x.x%20and%202.6.x%20kernels/4.1.0/linux-gpib-4.1.0.tar.gz and change according followed commands.
3. For script Web_Samba.sh change python-wxglade to wxglade (name was changed). During creation of directory in pub you made small typo and create 'log' instead of 'logs' .

I can confirm that this setup working fine with counterfeit 82357B and Raspberry Pi Model B Rev 2 and talk with Amrel PPS 30-2.5 .

Note for the other users - don't use
Code: [Select]
sudo rpi-update because it upgrade the kernel to 4.19.37+, but apt-get still download 4.14.98+ source and compilation of linux-gpib finish with errors.
