Missing Library files for interfacing with SPEC

Hi all,

I'm hoping to be able to send commands to a detector that is connected through tango using the x-ray diffraction motor control program SPEC (https://www.certif.com/)

I've been told there are a series of library files from Tango that are required:

libAttNotification4.so
libAttNotificationDynamic4.so
libCOS4.so
libCOSDynamic4.so
libCOSNotify4.so
libc_tango.so
libjzmq.so
liblog4tango.so
libomniCodeSets4.so
libomniConnectionMgmt4.so
libomniDynamic4.so
libomniORB4.so
libomnithread.so
libtango.so
libzmq.so

We have a computer with Tango installed by a vendor that was missing some of these files and I built Tango-9.2.5a on Ubuntu following the installation guide. Running the installation I still end up missing the following the following library files:

libAttNotification4.so
libAttNotificationDynamic4.so
libCOSNotify4.so
libc_tango.so
libjzmq.so

For the people who have Tango at a synchrotron who might be using Tango and Spec, is there a different version that I should be working with? Or is there something else I should be doing or doing something wrong?

Thank you,

Hi Al,

Do you know who is your vendor?

Thanks.

Best regards,
Hi, my vendor is X-Spectrum, it's a Lambda 750k detector.
Hi,

libAttNotification4.so
libAttNotificationDynamic4.so
libCOSNotify4.so

are coming from omniNotify (http://omninotify.sourceforge.net/ , CORBA notification service).
I think they were needed in the past for the first implementation of the Tango events but this is no longer required since the Tango events are now transferred via ZMQ.
So I think you should not need these libraries.

libc_tango.so comes from the Tango C binding (https://github.com/tango-controls/C_Binding).

libjzmq.so seems to be a file provided with the ZeroMQ Java binding (JNI libraries for libzmq-java): https://packages.debian.org/stretch/libzmq-jni
I don't know why you would require this one in your case.

Hoping this helps a bit.
