Micromaestro on Fedora Linux



Running MaestroControlCenter results in the message “install the Windows version of Mono to run .NET executables”

I’m running linux on my laptop.

Mono stuff installed:

[maestro_linux]$ yum list installed | grep -i mono

Any suggestions?


Micro Maestro 6 channel with Fedora GNU/Linux?


Have you tried running it with “mono MaestroControlCenter”?



Thanks Paul,

"mono MaestroControlCenter" comes up with a message: "There was a problem while starting up. libusb-1.0

“ln -s /usr/lib/libusb-1.0.so.0.0.0 /usr/lib/libusb-1.0.so” seems to suppress the message. Hopefully this is correct.

ls -l /usr/lib/libusb*
lrwxrwxrwx. 1 root root 19 2009-07-16 02:59 libusb-0.1.so.4 -> libusb-0.1.so.4.4.4

I think you left off the end of the error message. Anyway, does the Control Center work now? It is normal for mono to generate a bunch of warnings when the Control Center is running.
