Re: PyTROLL/SatPy Starter Kit V3.0 for GNU/Linux

Christian Peters


did you install the 64 bit ubuntu version!? I think you should use the 64 bit version (as the chip is 64bit). Anyway miniconda and other condo versions did not work on the PI.
I figured it out with virtualenv and pip. I think Ernst will provide the link in short time. You have to compile the packet on the Pi so it took some time, but it works. Just tested basic things, so more to come from you.

So you I just wait for a fresh MiniSDCard to try...but maybe I now can skip this as you are just ahead...! :-D



P.S.: Maybe I will do it will be just fun to get it working on the RP4 (but here only 4GB Ram)...

Hi Ernst,

I've started on installing your PyTROLL/StPy on a Raspberry Pi4, following your HOWTO_V30.txt and have come across a problem with Miniconda3 not being 32bit. I see that Christian has used "virtualenv" - could you kindly point me towards your GNU/Linux HOWTO 2.0, so that I can try this route, please ?

Many thanks,

Dear All,

here comes the Kit for GNU/Linux amd64 as promised. It's as easy to install and use as the one for Windows. It has been
developed under Debian 10 (Buster) but you should have no problems to get it running on any amd64 GNU/Linux distro.

It's based on Miniconda3 as the Windows companion. Christian Peters took "virtualenv" (as described in my GNU/Linux HOWTO 2.0)
to install the PyTROLL/SatPy environment and made a first Meteosat image on a RASPI (8GB RAM needed) with one of my scripts :-).

Have fun
