We have prepared binaries for different Linux platforms. For Ubuntu-based systems (e.g. Ubuntu, Mint,...) you should install the packages with your software manager, see below. They run much faster than the other binaries.On all other systems you have to identify your system configuration first. Then download the appropriate file (see table) and save it on your disk.
|System||32bit: i686||64bit: x86_64|
|Kernel 2.X||Download 1.0||Download 1.0|
|Kernel 3.X||Download 1.0||Download 1.0|
You need to unpack the archive which creates a directory with the same name. Open the file index.html in that directory with your web browser and follow the instructions there.
That's it. Have fun!
uname -rthe output is the kernel version, e.g. something like:
2.6.32-34-genericTo determine the platform type
uname -mwhich may be something like x86_64 or i686 or higher. terminal and execute:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:georg-martius/lpzrobots sudo apt-get updateThis makes your software manager aware of our repository. Now simply run
sudo apt-get install playfulmachinesThe simulations and the experimentpage are now located at /opt/playfulmachines. You need have the permissions to write in the simulation directories. Now type
sudo chmod -R go+r /opt/playfulmachinesor copy the entire folder to your home-directory by (recommended)
cp -r /opt/playfulmachines $HOME/Open the file index.html in that folder with your web browser.
Now you are done!
sudo apt-get autoremove playfulmachines
If you installed it via the packages then you have the sources already. They are in /opt/playfulmachines/Simulations/src/. The simulations are called from the experiment page via scripts located in playfulmachines/Experiments. Check them to figure out which simulation and commandline parameters belong to the which experiment.
