Good day to you, good people! I’m very new to coding but I do enjoy following studies and trying my best to learn Lua and how its integrated into the whole Norns ecosystem
I do have some really newbie questions and am wondering if it would be ok if I make a separate thread where those that are just getting into the whole world of writing scripts/coding in maiden are able to ask “basic, newbie” questions, that would help them in learning the language and coding in maiden.
For example: I’m struggling to understand why every time I create a new .lua file I have color coded code, while as soon as I rename it, it changes to basic REPL/command line view (no color coding, no auto-collums)? This might be completely obvious to some and I do apologise if it’s a pretty easy answer.
I’m aware that a thread like this might already exist (and please point me to it : ) ), or maybe the questions are just spread throughout the lines threads, but it’d probably be good to have it’s own thing.
This whoopsie I think since the latest big update in the Spring
<program name unknown>: error while loading shared libraries: libreadline.so.7: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Installed readline stuff
⠃▋⡇ ~$ dpkg -l libreadline\* |grep "^ii"
ii libreadline-dev:armhf 8.1-1 armhf GNU readline and history libraries, development files
ii libreadline6:armhf 6.3-9 armhf GNU readline and history libraries, run-time libraries
ii libreadline8:armhf 8.1-1 armhf GNU readline and history libraries, run-time libraries
Ah well that would do it. I think the maiden script catalog was added in the first year that norns was released so I would highly recommend installing a fresh disk image. From the sounds of it the software on that device is several years out of date.
The latest image is referenced in this topic and you’ll want to follow the fresh install instructions.
Once you have the latest system image then run SYSTEM > UPDATE to pick up any further fixes (there has been at least one release after the above full disk image was put together).
Having been away for a while, I just went to check Maiden library, and I cannot see any scripts! I can see all those that I have on norns, nut knot the available ones. Does anyone know what might be going on? Thanks.
