Anyone? I'm interested in setting up some measuring/recording/control for a home/hobby project, and so far it looks like my choices are either a) LabView ($$$$) or roll-my-own-interface (lots and lots of time spent plus trial-n-error). Kind of hoping for something in between...

What about "myOpenlab"?

Only German/Spanish HP, but an English forum part:

Looks good, not sure why they have an english-language forum if everything (including docs) is in German/Spanish?

Unpack the 30MB download and start via:


sudo sh ./start_linux
You can choose English there.

But sadly there was an error here, maybe because of Java 7?!

Hi,

it does not work with Java 7 from Oracle (Java 6 from Sun/Oracle not tested), but with OpenJDK6:


sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jdk openjdk-6-source openjdk-6-demo openjdk-6-doc openjdk-6-jre-headless openjdk-6-jre-lib openjdk-jre icedtea6-plugin
Then change to openjdk6:


sudo update-alternatives --config java
Start with

java -jar c-exp-lab.jar Elements
or

sh ./start_linux
