Looks like the version of Mono you are using - see other posts on the forum about compatibility with the USB component which MX uses.

i have to downgrade mono in order to get cumulus working
i used these post :

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get purge mono-devel

echo "deb http://download.mono-project.com/repo/debian wheezy/snapshots/4.0.5 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mono-xamarin.list 

sudo apt-get update

sudo aptitude install mono-complete=4.0.5.1-0xamarin1
and then

Code: Select all

In order to fix dependencies, aptitude must be used to install mono:
$ sudo aptitude install mono-complete=4.0.5.1-0xamarin1

Then you will get a proposal from aptitude to solve the dependencies:

Keep the following packages at their current version:
1) Do NOT accept this solution, when that would install the current version of mono(4.6.2) which has errors (as documented by SpaceHiker).
Respond with "n"

2) Accept the next solution from aptitude to install mono version 4.0.5 with this warning:
Respond with "Y"

3) At the next prompt:
Respond with "Y"

4) At the last prompt:
Do you want to ignore this warning and proceed anyway?
To continue, enter "yes"; to abort, enter "no":
Respond "yes"

Now mono-complete 4.0.5 will be installed.

In order to protect this old mono version (4.0.5) from future upgrades:
$ sudo apt-mark hold mono-runtime mono-complete

How to show the current Installed version:
$ mono --version
from scilab and RunningEv big thanks to them!!

For a much easier method (no script, and will restart cumulus after any power outage ... it starts it on every reboot) see:

It works fine for me. Suggest you check the file and directory names - some people call the directory 'Cumulus', others call it 'CumulusMX' and they obviously need to match what you called them on your system!
