Installing evothings linux 32-bit on raspberry pi 2

Postby jonas_graae » 12:04, 25 Aug 2015

Hi

I recently tried installing the Evothing application, in the linux 32 bit version on a raspberry pi 2 (with raspian).

It's not possible to execute the the program directly on raspian.

Has anyone tried installing evothings in raspian with succes?

Short answer: we haven't done this, but it might be possible.

Long answer: Evothings Studio is built for x86 processors, but the Raspberry uses an ARM processor, so it won't work directly.

The binary of interest is called node-webkit. The project doesn't have explicit support for ARM, but an enterprising developer has built a version that he says works on Raspberry Pi 2. You could try that.

I'll be changing our download page to clarify that our Linux packages are x86 only.
