    Hi,
    Is there a driver for the STF-8300M for Ubuntu? We're trying to run the STF-8300M with a FW5-8300 filter wheel.

    Thanks,

    Luke

    Hi Luke,
    What software application are you intending to use with the camera?
    Or is this something you're working on yourself?
    We've done some work for Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS for our STF, STX, STXL, and Aluma series cameras, and made it available for software developers building applications on that platform.

    We're trying to programmatically drive the camera and filter wheel with a Python script.

    Let me see what I can dig up. Our Linux guru is out on summer vacation for a few more days, so this may be delayed.

    Hi Luke, here's a .deb installer for the latest version of libsbigudrv:
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/wwt1033njtamqns/sbigudrv_4.99_amd64.deb?dl=1

    To install it, simply run:
    sudo dpkg -i sbigudrv_4.99_amd64.deb
    sudo apt-get install -f

    If for whatever reason you have trouble with the Debian package, let me know and I'll get you a manual install package.

    Cheers,
    -A
