I am installing KDS on Ubuntu.  The intent is to develop software for FRDM-KW41Z.  I have followed the LInux installation instructions in the Kinetis Design Studio 3.2.0 Release Notes.

 

xxx@bill-ThinkPad-T440:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS
Release: 14.04
Codename: trusty

xxx@bill-ThinkPad-T440:~/Projects$ ls kin*
kinetis-design-studio_3.2.0-1_amd64.deb
xxx@bill-ThinkPad-T440:~/Projects$ sudo dpkg -i kinetis-design-studio_3.2.0-1_amd64.deb

I am expecting to find the installed files in /opt/Freescale, but it's empty.

Hello, Robert!

I ran into the same problem. How I fixed it:

sudo dpkg --remove kinetis-design-studio

to remove any failed installation. Then I ran the command again:

sudo dpkg -i kinetis-design-studio_3.2.0-1_amd64.deb

and it passed.

It actually succeeded the first time, but I wanted to reinstall it and ran into the problem you have.

Further more - after the successful install I updated the segger drivers cus it turns out they are a bit old (follow this link Updating Segger Tools in Eclipse Kinetis Design Studio | MCU on Eclipse )

hope this helps!

Lubomir Bagdanov (wherever you are),

Thanks for your help.  I now have FRDM_KW41Z, KDS and Segger debugging software up and running on Ubuntu system.

Unfortunately, doesn't look like this solution works on the Ubuntu 22.04. I'm not sure why, but I'm getting the same error
