Software installations

The package lists below are at least a starting point for installing the Ludit dependencies. On a computer never used for development before the lists will most likely not be exhaustive. Hopefully things will later crash and fail in a way that indicates what could be missing.

​Common installs

These installs are common for both server and clients


python-pip libfdk-aac faad2 faac kate git subversion openssh rsync gstreamer gst-python gst-plugins-good gst-plugins-bad gst-plugins-ugly gst-libav python-pybluez python-websockets

On a fresh install this will end up as nearly 1GB of storage used.


gstreamer1.0-libav gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad gstreamer1.0-plugins-ugly python-gst-1.0 ubuntu-restricted-extras aac-enc libfdk-aac-dev autoconf libtool libasound2 libasound2-dev bluez libbluetooth-dev glib-2.0-dev libgtk2.0-dev libsbc-dev libsbc1 python3-pip python3-websockets


connectable installable via pip:

pip3 install connectable --upgrade

Client software installs

The client attempts to interact with gpio on a raspberrypi, to keep it from complaining on a raspberrypi install rpi-gpio python bindings. If rpi-gpio are unavailable (which they will always be on a non-rpi) then gpio will just be disabled.

Server software installs

simple-websocket-server can be installed via pip:

sudo pip install git+
