This might be a stupid question, but I downloaded the compiled zip file for the vesc tool for linux, and I can not get it started on ubuntu.
What type of file is it? a .deb installation file? an executable?
I could not find anywhere instructions (i assume is so basic that no one needed)
Tried the obvious and made the file executable and ran but got the error message:
./vesc_tool_1.25: error while loading shared libraries: libssl.so.1.0.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Downloaded the source code and compiled and got the program to start, but the bluetooth module does not work, and that is what i wanted to use....
Got the following error on my compiled version:
qt.bluetooth: Dummy backend running. Qt Bluetooth module is non-functional
compiling with qt creator worked!
I think a newer version of libssl became available recently hence the error. I'm guessing you are using a fairly recent version of Ubuntu?
Yeah, I'm using Ubuntu 19.10...
Hi, Im having issues getting the VESC tool to open at all. Im running ubuntu 21.04 on a raspberry pi 4. I have downloaded the linux vesc tool and unzipped, that takes me to an icon (vesc_tool_3.00) and will not open or do anything at all. Not sure how to fix???
Try to run it in terminal, it will show you if there is any error and then you can proceed from there. The error could be mostly this "./vesc_tool_3.00: error while loading shared libraries: libSDL2-2.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Then you can use this to install it - "sudo apt-get install git curl libsdl2-mixer-2.0-0 libsdl2-image-2.0-0 libsdl2-2.0-0"
