Hello!

 

I would like to know how to install KSDK 1.2.0 on Linux machines. I've downloaded it from KSDK website, and unziped it (using gunzip app). Instead of a directory full of code, I got a giant XML-like file.

 

Any help?

 

Cheers,

 

Ronaldo

For the Kinetis SDK on Linux: There is a 2 step process in extracting the files before you can read the readme.

The first extraction is the .gz -> tar. The gz is a compacted file 623MB, and the tar file is not compressed and is 2.6G. One then needs to extract the files from the tar. Then you can can read the docs.

I hope this helps.

FYI: I have submitted a change request to have this improved for the future.

Just to add extra info this.

After extracting the "Kinetis SDK 1.2.0 Mainline - Linux.gz" (623MB) file you will get the "Kinetis SDK 1.2.0 Mainline - Linux" (2.6GB) file.

Then extract it with the command: "tar -xvf Kinetis\ SDK\ 1.2.0\ Mainline\ -\ Linux"

Now I'm facing with a problem.

When I Try to install "KSDK_1.2.0_Eclipse_Update.zip" On Kinetis Design Studio I'm getting this message:

"An error occurred while collecting items to be installed

session context was:(profile=DefaultProfile, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Collect, operand=, action=).

No repository found containing: binary,com.somniumtech.kds.executable.gtk.linux.x86_64,3.0.0"

I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 64bits.

I had the same problem. Run Kinetis Design Studio as root:

sudo /opt/Freescale/KDS_3.0.0/eclipse/kinetis-design-studio

then install update.

I'm hoping the change request includes changing the suffix of the download from .gz to .tgz or .tar.gz?

Hi Ronaldo,

Please look at the last two posts at very bottom on the web page:

New Kinetis Design Studio V3.0.0 available

File needs to be renamed with .deb extension then "sudo dpkg -i *.deb" to install.

Regards,

David
