Is there a newer guide on setting up Cumulus MX on a raspberry Pi?

Do you mean here or on the official Cumulus site?

The latter is at https://cumulus.hosiene.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=40&t=17895

Seems out of date as the link to install MX is dead.

The Cumulus forum link has the discussion about each change/update to CumulusMX

The download for CumulusMX current version is always on the Cumulus Wiki at https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Software

CumulusMX is multi-platform and the same download file is used everywhere. But it does require the Mono library to be present - see the detailed instructions at:

https://cumuluswiki.org/a/Cumulus_MX#To_actually_run_MX

and the section entitled 'Requirements for running on Linux and OS X' et seq.

Sorry, but I can't help with individual issues by email. Please post your issue in the relevant forum section here & I will comment there if I have anything useful to add.

Does mono make it so you can run .exe?

Sorry i have not used Linux.

In a word, yes.

CMX runs fine on a Pi but you do need to get to the stage of installing both Mono and CMX itself. Don't be too put off by the length of those instructions in the wiki - much of that text is about how to install Raspberry Pi OS in the first place. If you're using a Pi already then you have probably got to that stage and just need to dive in at the 'Add the ‘Mono’ package'  step. I don't know whether the security certificate steps are still necessary - if Mark should happen to stop by then I'm sure he'll clarify.

Isn't that issue covered in the wiki notes? But you really would be better off asking on the Cumulus forum than on here I think.

sudo apt install apt-transport-https dirmngr gnupg ca-certificates
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
echo "deb https://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian stable-raspbianbuster main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-official-stable.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install -y mono-complete
sudo apt autoremove
At the time of writing (18 Sep 2019), this gets Mono v6.0.0.334, which works with Buster (RaspBIAN 10). However, there have been reports of incompatabilities which require use of an older version of Mono. These may have now been fixed, or alternatively may be related to use of locales other than en_GB.UTF-8 . Please see other threads in Support Forum for discussions. NOTE: 29 Feb 2020: added -y into the line sudo apt-get install -y mono-complete . This makes the install bypass the usual 'Continue Y/n?' prompt¨which was causing strange problems for some, e.g. worked if just pressed 'Enter' to accept default 'Y', but aborted installation if pressed 'Y Enter'. Bizarre. Reboot your Raspberry Pi This would be a reasonable time to reboot your Pi:


nope they added -y but still no work.

Running CumulusMX with Ubuntu 18.04 and latest mono without any issues here.

There is also a good startup script and Installation guide to use with Linux/raspi.
