I have Ubuntu 16.06 running on a 2007 Mac Mini.
I downloaded the linux version;
I unarchived it keeping the driectory (folder) structure;
I see a “lightrun” file that’s executable, but when I right-click and say “Run”, nothing happens: no screen, no error message.
I also see an Apprun executable file, but that also does nothing when I try to run it.
Both of them are marked as “Execute: Allow executing file as program” under Permissions.
I’ve searched forums and the web - no joy yet - hope you can help.
bash: ./LightBurn: cannot execute binary file: Exec format error
makerspace@makerspace:~/LightBurn$ file LightBurn
LightBurn: ELF 64-bit LSB executable, x86-64, version 1 (GNU/Linux), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib, for GNU/Linux 2.6.32, BuildID[sha1]=730ff70ff6f4cea55b385378cb6f2b99e978f626, not stripped
Googling around suggests that I need a 32-bit version. Ubuntu System Details does indeed say “32-bit”. Can I get a Linux 32-bit version of Lightburn?
I’ll also look at installing 64-bit Linux, but this is a 2006 Mac Mini, so…
All the other executables on this Ubuntu install are compiled 32-bit, for example:
makerspace@makerspace:/bin$ file netstat
netstat: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib, for GNU/Linux 2.6.24, BuildID[sha1]=9ad13c1be59f31f0dc38963001862b63c1078507, stripped
You can change the window stacking to make it shorter, but LightBurn wasn’t meant for a display that small I’m afraid. Drag the Laser window off the side bar and then over the middle of the “Cuts” list until it changes color and that should help.
