    Graphs as those on the Charts page?
    Seems to be OK after 1 minute stop and then start again.

    Yes. Very odd. Perhaps I changed the code to work around the mono problem...

    Edit: No, I didn't, so I don't know how that's working for you.

    The tooltips on the Charts page has decimal point but that is not an issue!
    The issue is that with mono 4 I get log files as Dec15log.txt when it should be dec15log.txt.

    In this thread, the user got version 4.0.2 fairly easily: http://sandaysoft.com/forum/viewtopic.p ... 5&p=113229

    Does that not get you 4.0.2 now?

    Edit: I tried adding deb http://plugwash.raspbian.org/mono4 jessie-mono4 main to my sources.list, installed mono-complete, and got mono 4.0.2, which detected my Fine Offset station.
    I'm working on it ... currently I got a PGP issue (?) with this additional line in /etc/apt/sources.list ... ;)
    Without this additional line I am still getting mono 3.2.8 ...

    But thanks for the hints .. didn't fall over the other thread before ... :)

    As the saying goes, mono version 3.2.8 which comes with jessie works dont f*** with it. It works! No need to update it.

    Hmm, is the content of the software package Mono 3.2.8 different in Wheezy and Jessie ?
    If not, then I'm doubting, that Mono 3.2.8 will work for the users of non english locales ...
    I had may experiences in spring 2015 (using Wheezy, though) ...

    I am running with Mono 3.2.8 on Wheezy with Swedish locale

    Code: Select all

    sudo mono CumulusMX.exe -lang sv-SE
    About to try on Jessie shortly.

    I upgraded to PIXEL - the latest Raspberry Pi offering https://www.raspberrypi.org/blog/.

    So far not much luck with CumulusMX.

    Code: Select all

    pi@raspberrypi:~/Documents/CumulusMX $ sudo mono CumulusMX.exe

    I'm sure you are all going to tell me to downgrade MONO...

    Apart from 3.2.8, which seems to be completely bulletproof, 4.0.x appears to be quite a good version of Mono as far as MX is concerned. Do you have the full mono-complete package installed?

    Hi Steve - it is as delivered by the Raspberry pi PIXEL upgrade instructions.

    I'm just about to download a new NOOBS and start fresh.

    A standard installation may not include the full Mono distribution (i.e. the mono-complete package) as required by MX.

    I use 4.0.5 on mine and it's been running now for nearly three weeks straight.
