Linux platform notes

The Action Camera Toolbox ships with a 32 bit Linux binary. The application has been tested on Ubuntu distributions but should work on other distributions as well.

Ubuntu 32 Bit

The following packages have to be installed:

sudo apt-get install xcb libxcb-sync1 libxcb-xinerama0 openssl network-manager

It might also be necessary to create a symbolic link:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb-sync.so.1 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb-sync.so.0

Then extract the downloaded archive and run the application:

cd ~/Downloads
tar xfvz actlinux.tar.gz
cd act
./act.sh

Ubuntu 64 Bit

The following packages have to be installed:

sudo apt-get install openssl:i386 libc6-i386 libstdc++6:i386 \
libpulse0:i386 libpng12-0:i386 libglu1-mesa:i386 libglib2.0-0:i386 \
libxcb-xinerama0:i386 libsm6:i386 libice6:i386 libxcb-sync1:i386 libxi6:i386 \
libxcb-xfixes0:i386 libxcb-render-util0:i386 libxcb-randr0:i386 libxcb-image0:i386 \
libxcb-shm0:i386 libxcb-keysyms1:i386 libxcb-icccm4:i386 libxcb-shape0:i386 \
libfontconfig1:i386 libfreetype6:i386 network-manager:i386

It might also be necessary to create a symbolic link:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb-sync.so.1 /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libxcb-sync.so.0

Then extract the downloaded archive and run the application:

cd ~/Downloads
tar xfvz actlinux.tar.gz
cd act
./act.sh

Hints

If you encounter problems like missing dependencies then the following commands can help you to track down the problem:

ldd act
// or
ldd "some-library-name"

If ldd returns one or multiple “not found” entries then you have to manually install the missing packages. On 64 bit platforms you have to add :i386 after the package name.
