Upgrading the Toolkit was so simple.
Thanks for the automatic esp device selection after doing a blue button read, and all the other improvements.

Thanks cicciocb,

Excellent improvement to make the Toolkit multi platform!!
Tested it on Ubuntu 18.04 and it is working great.
Flashing and reading esp8266, esp32, uploading and downloading files, udp.
Tried to use the Ota, but could not get it to do anything.
(I have never used Ota before so it is very probable I'm using it the wrong way.)

Big plus: One reason less to keep a Windows machine at hand.

Hi,
the OTA under linux requires elevation (be root) to work because the use of local ports below 1024 are privileged and only root can open listening sockets on them.

I'll change the port to 8080 to avoid this limitation with linux

Cicciocb, I have loaded and run without problems on UBUNTU-MATE 20.04.2.0 desktop amd64.
However, on Raspberry Pi OS Desktop (Debian Buster 4.19), installed on a laptop, I get these messages:

pi @ raspberry: ~ / annex $ ./mkspiffs
./mkspiffs: error while loading shared libraries: libstdc ++. so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


pi @ raspberry: ~ / annex $ ./linux.sh
./zulu15.29.15-ca-fx-jre15.0.2-linux_x64/bin/java: error while loading shared libraries: libz.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Then I have understood that Raspberry only offers the 32-bit installation, so it is normal when you use 64-bit Java.

So everything is correct. A great job. (And pretty)

Wow, it could even run on respberry!

Let me investigate and see what can be done.

A quick search brought me here where we are talking about how to get javafx to work on raspberry
[External Link Removed for Guests]

You should download and install the SDK for raspberry.
The link seems this one [External Link Removed for Guests]
I'm not sure if this version is compatible but you could give a try.

I just followed the full instructions on my Ubuntu 20.04.2, but it failed on the lack of serial ports. everything seemed to work. I did the usermods, there wasn't a 'lock' group so I created it and added myself to it, but still no ports after logging out/in.

This will be a gamechanger for me.

Hi Stuart, the device port is only available when there is a valid device plugged into it and linux has installed a valid driver for the device.
So try plugging in some different ESP devices (giving enough time for the device driver to get loaded and linux to make the new port available in the Toolkit device dropdown).

Hi Stuart,
in addition to what Electroguard said, can you jst confirm that esptool works? (as shown in the procedure )?

i.e. typying

Code: [Local Link Removed for Guests]

./esptool
esptool.py v2.6
usage: esptool [-h] [--chip {auto,esp8266,esp32}] [--port PORT] [--baud BAUD]
               [--before {default_reset,no_reset,no_reset_no_sync}]
               [--after {hard_reset,soft_reset,no_reset}] [--no-stub]
               [--trace] [--override-vddsdio [{1.8V,1.9V,OFF}]]
               ....

Hi Fernando,
I just understood that you are talking about the Raspberry Pi operating system on x86 PC, I misinterpreted this as for the Raspberry Pi.
These 2 errors should go installing the lib32 and choosing the right java SDK 32bits.

I need to see if it can be found somewhere ...

Indeed, Francesco, it is about this distribution:
[External Link Removed for Guests]
I would appreciate it because I have installed it in a sadly aged Dell Inspiron 1545 that with only 2 GB of RAM and, I do admit, an SSD hard drive, has been reborn.
