Master branch status

Development branch status


  • numpy

  • scipy

To install the prerequisites in Ubuntu 12.04

sudo apt-get install update
sudo apt-get install python-numpy python-scipy


There are several ways to install typic. The most common way is to download the source code, unzip/untar the source code package and run the command

sudo python install

I have plans of submitting this package to the Python Package Index. If I do so, then should be able to install it by running the command

sudo pip install typic

COMMENT: halcon depends on numpy and scipy. Installing these packages in Windows and MacOSX is not a trivial task. For more information refer to the documentation.

If you wish to install typic in a virtual enviroment, then you can do

virtualenv typic
cd typic
source ./bin/activate
pip install numpy
pip install scipy
mkdir src
cd src
git clone
cd typic
python install
cd ../../

COMMENT: The previous snippet assumes that you have virtualenv installed in your working system.
