    I have finished installing RapidScada on Ubuntu 20.04LTS. I could log in with admin user ID & passwaord. But unable to see any option to create a new project. Am I missing any installation step? Is there any guide for creating new project in Ubuntu with MicroLogix1400 PLC

    The manual for the Micrologix1400 is no different from adding any other device. The only thing that is not described, since this is implied by itself, you need to copy the dlls to the desired folders and register the corresponding dll for the device in the Scada settings by analogy. See where in the directory the dll for Modbus and other drivers are registered.

    If anything, write me an email and I will help you with setting up a template for your PLC configuration

    Are you going to configure directly on Linux in a graphical environment? This is not the best solution, because due to problems with Mono, not everything is displayed correctly. It is better to configure a Windows PC and send the information to the server. And so you can run it via

    mono scadaadmin

    Or what is the correct name of the Administrator file

    Thank you for your quick response!

    I was trying to configure directly in Linux. I’ll try to do this in windows and update you. Since we are phasing out windows and shifting to Ubuntu & Mac we are checking if development can also be done in Ubuntu.

    Is there any alternate way to make development in Ubuntu with GUI?

    The interface works, but there are some problems with the display and for the Linux version these mechanisms are disabled. For example, in the settings there are no drop-down menus with a selection of preset values, you must enter numbers. You can make a cheat sheet for all parameters and look at it when setting up, but this is very inconvenient. We expect version 6, where it will probably already work in the GUI on Linux without these inconveniences. All applications running under Mono run as written above, in theory, you can make symbolic links to run.

    Admin_Linux

    This mechanism does not work in Linux. I haven’t checked what doesn’t work yet. Raspberry is too slow a PC to configure scada directly on it, it is easier to run a project on your Windows PC and upload it to a remote server.

    I recommend to configure a project on Windows, then upload it to a Linux machine.

    @manjey73 @Mikhail Thank you for your quick support!

    I will try with Windows and update if any support needed. I am quite new to SCADA since we have always used HMI with PLC so far. Hope the Guides for Windows will be handy enough.

    The manuals and the forum complement each other.
