# GQ GMC
This is a web service interface for GQ GMC geiger counters.
## Installation
Note this is not yet complete.
```bash
go get -u gitlab.com/lyda/gqgmc/cmd/gqgmcd
```
## Configuring udev
Copy the `linux/51-gqgmc.rules` file to the `/etc/udev/rules.d`
directory and force the reload of udev rules:
```bash
sudo cp ./51-gqgmc.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/51-gqgmc.rules sudo
udevadm control --reload-rules
```
Disconnect the GQ GMC-300 from the computer and then reconnect.
Verify that there exists a `/dev/gqgmc` in the `/dev` directory
with read/write permission for all users.
```bash
ls -la /dev/gqgmc
```
INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1. Download the code from sourceforge into a directory of your choice.
This will be referred to as your root directory.
2. The following list of files need to be downloaded. Obtain them from
the gqgmc folder.
Makefile
Defines.mk
Patterns.mk
Targets.mk
gqgmc.cc
gqgmc.hh
main.cc
main_gui.cc
plotter.hh
plotter.cc
51-gqgmc.rules
3. Create the following subdirectories of your root directory:
bin
libs
obj
For example, "mkdir bin", "mkdir libs", "mkdir obj".
4. Edit Defines.mk and change the definition of BASE to the
path of your root directory. If you will be compiling for 32-bit
Linux, change the definition of CPUSIZE from "-m64" to "-m32"
in Defines.mk.
5. From the command line, you should be able to build the
'gqgmc_gui' and 'gqgmc' executables which if the build is successful
will be put into bin subdirectory. Try "make all" as the build
command.
6a. Copy the 51-gqgmc.rules file to the /etc/udev/rules.d directory and
force the reload of udev rules:
sudo cp ./51-gqgmc.rules /etc/udev/rules.d/51-gqgmc.rules
sudo udevadm control --reload-rules
Disconnect the GQ GMC-300 from the computer and then reconnect.
Verify that there exists a /dev/gqgmc in the /dev directory with
read/write permission for all users.
ls -la /dev/gqgmc
6b. With the GQ geiger counter connected to your PC via USB and turned
on, start either bin/gqgmc or bin/gqgmc_gui from a console command
line. The USB device name must be supplied from the command line, e.g.,
bin/gqgmc /dev/gqgmc
bin/gqgmc_gui /dev/gqgmc
The code expects the GQ GMC USB device name to be /dev/gqgmc. This
device name was created at step 6a.
7. The following is a list of prerequisites for successful compilation:
a. Ubuntu Linux 11.10, 12.04 or 14.04
b. GNU g++ 4.6.x or more recent compiler installed
c. Qt4 Software Development Kit (SDK) installed
or Qt Creator installed (required only for GUI)
