    Tested Sandbox software on:
    Gigabyte BRIX
    Model: GB-BXi7G3-760
    16GB mem
    120GB SSD
    Nvidia chipset (760)

    60FPS with water model running. Works perfect. Ubuntu 14.04


    Do you know of an alternative mini PC that is can be purchased for less?
    Thanks for your help.


    Hello Greg,

    I have a similar setup to yours. When I tried installing Vrui, I did not get a spinning globe even though the installation was successful. Did you have any problems with this? I’m also running Ubuntu 14.04.
    Thank you for your help.


    Are you sure you’re running the Nvidia drivers?


    When I go into the Software & Updates< Additional Drivers it says that I am using NVIDIA binary driver – version 331.113 from nvidia -331 (proprietary tested).

    Does this seem ok? I’m pretty new to Ubuntu, so thank you so much for your help.


    OK, so that is not the issue.
    I’ve never had that error and have installed and run quite a few of these now.
    Have you tried launching the SARandbox ?
    Does it also launch but not display?

    When you run the following from a terminal window:


    what response do you get in the terminal window?


    Greg, thanks for your help. I believe that the Internet at the University has some sort of block. I brought the BRIX to my house and everything is running fine here.


    Hello Greg,

    When I tried doing the intrinsic calibration to my Kinect (~/Vrui-3.1/bin/KinectUtil getCalib 0) I got the following message:

    lab@lab:~/src/SARndbox-1.5-001$ ~/Vrui-3.1/bin/KinectUtil getCalib 0
    terminate called after throwing an instance of ‘std::runtime_error’
    what(): Kinect::Camera::Camera: Less than 0 Kinect camera devices detected
    Aborted (core dumped)

    It seems to me like the Gigabyte BRIX is not recognizing my Kinect (I got the model 1473 Kinect)

    was there something that I have to download before running that line on the terminal (like maybe some sort of software from Microsoft? I plugged the Kinect to the BRIX straight out of the box).



    Try running it like this:

    Any further suggestions?

    By the way, I greatly appreciate you for taking the time to help me with this.


    By the way,

    Since I have the Kinect 1473 how do I download this the rule file that contains this:
