downloading cleanflight & blackbox - for linux
« on: January 10, 2018, 11:56:39 »
Hi guys,
I'm still very new to all this & have spent some time ytubing etc. learning. I think it very likely I'll end up trying to build stuff for which I'll need an f/c configurator. I have downloaded Betaflight config. as a stand alone and want cleanflight & blackbox too but can't find any standalone downloads. To complicate things I've recently dropped windows in favour of linuxlite. I'm reading cleanflight was a chrome app but google have stopped supporting this. Do I  need cleanflight if I have beta?  :-/

update; I've found cleanflight as a zip file, downloaded it & extracted as per beta but am not able to open/run it from commandline as I can with beta...  :banghead:

If you are running Linux I would expect it to be a tar file rather than a zip.
All the apps that were chrome should be available from github somewhere.

I have now downloaded & extracted both; and source code (tar.gz) from here:
I can't open either from command line in the same way as I can with beta (which was a zip from git.hub) so I'm stumped. I open beta with: ($) cd 'file address' then; ($) ./betaflight-configurator
so long as I spell it all right with no caps etc. it opens fine. I've tried every variation I can think of for cleanflight but no joy.
