Hello. I have recently made the switch from Windows to Ubuntu (I love it!), and I want to start programming the CBC. I know that the source code is available, but I have no idea to go about setting up the KISS IDE or anything. Can anyone provide me with some information? Thank you very much.

That's an interesting problem, I never noticed there was no download for linux. You might try contact Braden Mcdorman. I believe Kiss IDE is one of his many babies.

KISS IDE is one of my favorite babies, Garrett. :P

The official source repository on github is probably not what you want right now. That repository is currently undergoing extensive modification in preparation for the 4.0.0 "Oxygen" release and the new botball controller. There is a linux fork of our repository, however, that is still on version 3.0.2. You'll also need the kiss-targets package, which is available here

The build instructions are listed in the Readme.markdown file. All of the dependencies should be available from your package manager.

If you have any issues, shoot me an email at: bmcdorman (at) x (dot) y , where x = kipr and y = org
Alternatively, you can call KIPR and ask for Braden during work hours CST.

Good Luck.

Thank you very much for your reply, but I have one question: will I be able to program with the CBCJVM?

Ah, another one of my babies. :P

I believe so. Just make sure you build the "cbcjvm" target in kiss-targets (which will be built by default.) I don't think we do anything too weird when we distribute KISS IDE, so I'm pretty sure CBCJVM will work without any modification. If you are still having issues once you've followed the build steps and installed the targets, let me know. Your Ubuntu installation will need java and the java compiler to compile programs.

When you say "install the targets," what do you mean exactly?

Compiling kiss-targets will generate 3 kiss archives which can be installed into KISS IDE through File, Packages, Install Local Package.

That actually looks correct. KISS IDE 3 does not have a "make install" step. It is meant to be launched from the deploy directory by either double clicking or from the terminal. Of course, KISS IDE won't do much without also building kiss-targets, which in turn depends on libkiss and kiss-docs. The readme in kiss-targets should have more information.

I just exchanged an email with Braden and he said that IDE 4 will be released before Christmas, should have a .deb package and will hopefully be submitted to the official Ubuntu repositories.

I know it's been a while, but any word on that .deb? I'd really love to be able to use KISS on my Crunchbang (Debian based distro) laptop, but compiling from source is such a hassle, and I haven't been able to do it properly with KISS yet... Anyways, thanks! (Also, the .deb will be available outside of Ubuntu's repositories, correct?)
