Preface

CODESYS 4 Linux is just a small install helper, to install CODESYS on top of wine. This works, since the release of version 3.5 SP13, more or less smoothly. You can't expect, that all features are working, or that the usability is as smooth as under windows. But big parts of the product are working, what makes it well usable for many scenarios.

Installation

This describes, the prefered way, using the install script.
To manually do the installation, you might want to take a look into this page.

Download

Download the install script. This can be done with

  • svn
  • from the website
  • wget

e.g.:

wget -c "https://forge.codesys.com/tol/codesys-4-linux/docker/ci/master/tree/codesys-ide/install.sh?format=raw"

Prerequisites

You might need a development version of wine.
This is the command for debian to install it:

sudo apt-get install wine64-development cabextract winbind

Run

Change the rights of the script, and run it.

chmod u+x install.sh
./install.sh

Docker

You can build a docker container, which contains a CODESYS installation running on top of wine. The installation process is automated in the same way as described above. To build the docker image, you can simply use the Dockerfile from the Git repository:

sudo docker build https://forge.codesys.com/git/tol,codesys-4-linux,docker.git/\#:codesys-ide

Start CODESYS

After the installer finished, you should have a folder "~/.wine.cds/drive_c/CODESYS". From there you can start CODESYS like this...

wine-development ~/.wine.cds/drive_c/CODESYS/CODESYS/Common/CODESYS.exe
