URSim on Linux
Installing the Universal Robots simulator software on Linux.
The information on this page applies to software versions 3.3 and newer.
The simulator has been tested on the Linux Mint 17.1 Rebbecca distribution (Ubuntu 14.04 based). Universal Robots gives no guarenties/do not provide any support with respect to the execution of this software on other Linux distributions.
This mini guide explains how to install the Universal Robots software (GUI and controller) on Ubuntu Linux.
With this software installed it is possible to create and run programs on a simulated robot, with some limitations. The most important of these limitations is that it is not possible to simulate digital/analogue input to the robot. Furthermore touch screen set-up and network set-up from within the GUI won't work. The robot is able to communicate via TCP/IP, if this is configured on the host machine.
The basic prerequisites for the software is Python 2.6.
