Ubuntu Install of Libbarrett-1.2.1

Instructions for Debian and Source Libbarrett Installations.

Please Note: While you can now develop, and compile Libbarrett programs without running our real-time operation system, you will only be able to run the Libbarrett software on a PC that is running our real-time operating system. Details and a description of this are located here:

http://support.barrett.com/wiki/WAM/DetailedSystemOperation

We advise development of new control software on an external PC, then copying over the necessary source files to the real-time control PC (typically the WAM's internal PC/104), recompiling, and running the software.
