    How is it possible to run the demos of the Chip+Salsa Kit of SalsaLib with Windows?
    I worked already with putty, so I got to this point of the DemoDocumentation:
    root@beaglebone:~# cd FlatEarth/Demos/Ancho/RadarServer/
    root@beaglebone:~/FlatEarth/Demos/Ancho/RadarServer# make
    root@beaglebone:~/FlatEarth/Demos/Ancho/RadarServer# ./radarServer 11111
    Calibrating radar (may take several seconds)
    Server ready...


    but then in Linux follows:
    user@LinuxPC:~/Demos/Desktop_Ancho$ cd ClutterDemo/
    user@LinuxPC:~/Demos/Desktop_Ancho/ClutterDemo$ make
    user@LinuxPC:~/Demos/Desktop_Ancho/ClutterDemo$ ./clutterDemo 192.168.7.2 11111


    where the user changes to the LinuxPC and I can't do that.
    Do you have any experience to work on Windows?
    The SalsaWeb works so far.


    I also have problems to connect the Radar with matlab.

    I went through the instructions for Matlab, but it doesn't connect. If I use the command:

    obj = radarWrapper('192.168.7.2', 1)


    It follows:
    Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden. (engl.: System can't find the path)
    Updating Matlab Connector
    Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.
    Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.
    Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.
    Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.

    Hanna,

    The Ancho Demos that run on the BBB will display in Windows, but you must have the Xming X Server installed. Please refer to the documentation, Salsa Demo Documentation.html, under Installing Software for Windows PC.

    However, the Linux PC demos (or desktop demo apps) only run on a Linux host PC, as they are only supplied as Debian packages. They could potentially be ported to Windows....

    For MATLAB, this error may be related to your version of MATLAB or a localization issue. What version are you using? We can give you more custom, detailed instructions through support.

    Please direct these more specific support questions to support@flatearthinc.com.

    Regards,
    Will

    Hanna,

    Your version of MATLAB should work fine. Can you try to run SalsaLab on a PC with an English OS, as there may be a localization issue. Also, try initializing radarWrapper without the second argument, so just radarWrapper('192.168.7.2').

    Regards,
    Will
