This article shows you how to download, install and configure Pix4Dengine Server on Linux. Please note that the GUI is not officially supported with the Linux version.
To download the Pix4Dengine Server installer for Linux (.deb package), go to https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.
First install the Linux dependencies shown here: Linux dependencies
To install Pix4Dengine Server, you'll need to use the following command:
sudo apt install ./pix4dmapper
By default the newly installed Pix4Dengine Server executable is stored in a directory present in the PATH variable. If this is not the case, follow the instructions here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/EnvironmentVariables#Persistent_environment_variables
Before processing a project, it is necessary to login and accept the EULA (after having read it). To do so, type the following command:
pix4dmapper -c --email EMAIL_ADDRESS --password PASSWORD --accept-eula yes
The -c argument is used to prevent the graphical user interface (GUI) from opening.
Process a first project with Pix4Dengine Server by following the instructions here: Pix4Dengine Server first processing. For more information on how to use the command line: How to use the command line.
For advanced users, more functions can be accessed by modifying the .p4d file: .p4d minimum format.
