OpenOCD Ubuntu Package
Installing the OpenOCD Package
Open a terminal window (Applications menu > Accessories > Terminal) and type:
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install openocd
The package installs config files to /usr/share/openocd/scripts, but OpenOCD looks for config files in /usr/local/share/openocd/scripts. Fix that now by creating a symbolic link in /usr/local/share to /usr/share/openocd. In the terminal window, type:
cd /usr/local/share sudo ln -s /usr/share/openocd .
You can run OpenOCD from a terminal window from any directory. Installing OpenOCD from the APT allows users to run OpenOCD without sudo. (If you compiled OpenOCD yourself you would need to take special steps to allow users to use OpenOCD without sudo).
In a terminal window, type:
openocd -f path_to/file.cfg [-f another_path_to/file2.cfg]
For example, to run OpenOCD for the hitex str9 comstic board, type:
openocd -f interface/hitex_str9-comstick.cfg -f target/str912.cfg
