PKremote for Samsung GX10 Mac OS X


Link Posted 03/05/2010 - 11:43
I know Pentax remote assistant doesn't work on the Samsung GX10 but I've found a piece of software called PKremote which does work. Trouble is, it's a Linux application and I'm running Mac OS X

I'd really love to get the remote capture working for time lapse, stop motion projects. Does anyone know how to recompile a linux application for Mac?

How about installing Virtual Box (the Mac version obviously!), then installing Ubuntu into this, then running PKremote.

I know it sounds a lot of hassle, but its easier than it seems, and very flexible (window within window...)
Still shooting in the dark (literally and metaphorically)...

This is so alien to me. I'm used to downloading an application that works on a mac, not ones you have to build yourself.

I got virtual box and ubunto running fine, when I try to install pkremote I have to install something called GTK! and libglade first. I downloaded the first of these but it's another that I have to compile first and for that I need something else, which I need to compile etc, etc.

The extent of the instructions are: 'Build by typing 'make'

I assume this to be in terminal and I know how to change directory to get there but when I type make it says something about there being no make file.

Never mind.
