Links: TiLP   TiEmu

The effort to get a Ti-89 connected to the laptop. Didn't want the Windows stuff that came with the calculator. Located the TiLP Project for Linux. All good. All the files are linked from the site.

Versions installed during this blog entry:
  • tilp2 - 1.16
  • libticables2 - 1.3.3
  • libticalcs2 - 1.1.7
  • libticonv - 1.1.3
  • libtifiles2 - 1.1.5

The program comes in two packages, the program itself and a package of libs. Obviously install the libs package first, which will do the libticables2, libticalcs2, libticonv, and libtifiles2.

When compiling be sure to use

$ configure --prefix=/usr

Otherwise hell to pay with subsequent library location. Libs seem to have to be installed in a certain order. Sussed this out from the README's...
  1. libticonv
  2. libtifiles
  3. libticables
  4. libticalcs
...which worked.

loading applications
Take the stats program, for example. Download it from the Ti Site, its name is tistatl.89k.
  1. Connect the Ti-89 w/usb
  2. $ tilp
  3. libticables
  4. libticalcs

I also installed Group File Manager v. 1.06.
Haven't installed or played with this yet. I'll add the info and edit this portion of the page one of these weekends.
