    I already have the Sandbox up and running… however my contour lines are about 3 cm off and I am a perfectionist. How can I recalibrate the projector within the
    Terminal Window? I tried just typing ./bin/CalibrateProjector -s 1024 768 but an error message of No such file in directory exist. What are the steps of recalibrating the projector?

    You might be in the wrong place. Run this in a terminal:

    cd ~/src/SARndbox-2.4
    ./bin/CalibrateProjector -s 1024 768

    Thank you! I’ll give it a try. This can be done without re-installing the desktop icon correct?? Or would I have to repeat steps 13-16

    This does not affect any of the installation steps. You can re-calibrate any time. If you end up doing it a lot, you should create another desktop icon for CalibrateProjector. Follow the instructions for the SARndbox icon.

    Are you talking about step 14? Because I do remember doing that for the software installation. But how can I create a desktop icon? Should I follow step 16?

    #!/bin/bash

    # Enter SARndbox directory:
    cd ~/src/SARndbox-2.4

    # Run CalibrateProjector with proper command line arguments:
    ./bin/CalibrateProjector -uhm -fpv

    chmod a+x ~/src/SARndbox-2.4/CalibrateProjector.sh

    xed ~/Desktop/CalibrateProjector.desktop

    #!/usr/bin/env xdg-open

    I am following basically step 16 but instead of using RunSARnbox I am using CalibrateProjector

    Don’t forget to replace “<username>” with your actual user name.

    I am in the correct directory and I’m having the same problem.

    ./bin/CalibrateProjector -s 1024 768 is giving me an error.

    I had the computer working yesterday. Maybe I’ll reinstall.

    Just create an desktop icon to run calibrations
