Ubuntu Install of Libbarrett-1.2.4

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:


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.

To install Libbarrett-1.2.4, follow the instructions on our git repository:


Test your installation by reading the documentation:


Explore and run the examples in your home directory
