    Hi all

    We are attempting to update our sandbox in a national park service visitor center, which currently has outdated versions of VRUI, Sarndbox and the Kinect software. Is there a way to install the updated VRUI package onto a flash drive or external hard drive from a computer which has internet access, and then download it onto the sandbox computer? We have not been given permissions for internet access on the computer with the outdated sandbox software.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    1. Download newest packages (.tar.gz files) from the web onto a USB drive.

    2. Plug USB drive into sandbox computer. This should open a window showing the drive’s contents.

    3. Open a terminal window and go to the directory where the old source packages are, by default:

    $ cd ~/src

    4. Unpack the Vrui source package: Type “tar xfz ” (including the last space), then drag the Vrui-x.y-zzz.tar.gz file from the USB drive window onto the terminal window. Press Enter. This will create a new directory under ~/src, with the same name as the package minus .tar.gz

    5. Go inside the new Vrui directory:
    $ cd Vrui-x.y-zzz

    6. Build and install Vrui:
    $ make
    $ sudo make install

    Then repeat the same steps for the other two packages.
