Here is Jonathan Marsden's personal package archive with the RepRap Debian/Ubuntu packages:


You can install them on an Ubuntu machine with the following commands.

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:jmarsden/reprap && sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get -y install reprap-mendel-host reprap-mendel-electronics reprap-mendel-firmware reprap-mendel-mechanics reprap-utils

You also probably need to add a udev rule to access the communication port.

echo 'SYSFS{idVendor}=="0403", SYSFS{idProduct}=="6001", MODE="666"' | sudo tee /etc/udev/rules.d/sanguino-usb.rules > /dev/null

To get the software for loading firmware into the Sanguino chip, issue the following commands (not necessary, if the firmware has been loaded already).

sudo apt-get -y install arduino
sudo wget --continue --directory-prefix=/tmp 'http://sanguino.googlecode.com/files/Sanguino-0018r2_1_4.zip'
sudo unzip -o /tmp/Sanguino-0018r2_1_4.zip Sanguino/* -d /usr/share/arduino/hardware
