This article shows you how to download, install and configure Pix4Dengine Server on Linux.
To follow this article, you will need:
- To be connected to the Internet
- A valid Pix4Dengine Server license. Please contact us if you are looking for one
Step 1: Download
To download the Pix4Dengine Server installer for Linux (.deb package), go to https://cloud.pix4d.com/download/.
Documentation and support are not available for the preview version. We recommend testing it before using it for production work.
Step 2: Install
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
Step 3: Configure
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.
This and other configuration data are saved under /home/USER/.config/pix4d for Linux.
Process a first project with Pix4Dengine Server by following the instructions here 115005866763.
