Best Linux Distro for TunerStudio

Postby Lambo » Fri Jun 09, 2017 12:27 pm

The last time I setup linux for this, I used fedora, but that was quite some time ago using fedora 20. I remember jumping through some hoops to get it working but there were still a few oddities and I never really was happy with it.

I'm setting up a new laptop for this, and might want to try Linux again. Does anyone of have suggestions on which distro to go with?? Ubuntu maybe? It would be nice if it worked out of the box, or if there was a step by step guide somewhere.

I'm prepared to slap windows 10 on if that is really what I need to do, but running with linux would be nice. I'm really not a fan of windows 10.

I've recently installed Linux Mint. You need to add your user to the dialout group to get serial access.

I've done a YouTube walkthrough for TunerStudio using Ubuntu if this helps you. Here's the link.

+1 on Linux Mint. If you want to try it you can use a live CD without installing it.
Takes a little learning but not too hard.

Other than taking awhile to figure this out mint has treated me well on my beater laptop.

Running on CentOS 7. Works as expected.
