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

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.

Hi,

with the support of Santa's little helper I was able to get RPi3 up and running with linux-gpib and GPIB-USB-adapter. I can strongly recommend this solution and have to say thanks to the guys that helped not only to get the adapter running, but also snake script controlling GPIB devices and serial interface for my ambient sensors.  :-+
My tool chain is RPi3 running the Python script in the background, which writes all data I need into a file, Bitwise on my Windows10 laptop to grap latest data via SSH and control RPi and GNU Octave on my Windows machine to visualize data with nice plots. So a complete open source solution/tool chain. I won't become a Python fanboy, but it's doing it's job reliable by now.

NEVER do this if not needed and unless you know what you are doing:

The rpi-update utility will download the latest (unstable, testing) kernel.
A good reason for using this would be if you like to help with the testing effort, and are happy to risk breakages and submit bug reports.

If you need to update Kernel (there should be good reasons to do that), this would be recommended:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install --reinstall raspberrypi-bootloader raspberrypi-kernel

@branadic which Version of Linux-gpib have you installed?

There are several bug fixes and improvements in current (dev) repository, but if you do not encounter any problems with 4.2.0 there is no need to follow the complicated way.

Has anyone tried to install the new Linux-GPIB 4.3.0 drivers?
