Issue during MAVLink installation

HI,

I am trying to install MAVLink on my ubuntu machine following the instructions at

https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-aero-compute-board-developer-guide-for-setting-up-a-... Set Up a Simulation Environment with the Intel® Aero Compute Board Developer Guide | Intel® Software

https://github.com/mavlink/mavlink GitHub - mavlink/mavlink: Marshalling / communication library for drones.

When I cd to the mavlink directory and run cmake and then try a make or the python -m pymavlink.tools.mavgenerate command, I get the following error

/usr/bin/python: No module named pymavlink.tools

I have set my PYTHONPATH to /usr/bin/python.

Any idea what I am missing ?

Thanks

Hi Andres,

Is this what I should buy for my Pixhawk ? Let me know if this is all I need to connect to my intel aero compute board and start using.

Hello Rohan,

 

 

As you can see here https://www.intel.com/content/dam/support/us/en/documents/boardsandkits/aero/apu-170405-pixhawk-flig..., as long as the flight controller that you choose has a UART interface then it can be attached to the Aero Compute Board. So the link that you provided shows a compatible Pixhawk flight controller. Additionally, it seems that the cables required are included.

 

 

Have a nice day.

 

 

Regards,
