Download and compile the MCC Bluetooth Linux drivers


Intended Audience

This document is intended for the application developer familiar with both MCC DAQ devices and Linux programming, and who is interested in acquiring data on a Linux platform. 

Step 1 Downloading the driver.

You can download the latest MCCLIBBTH file directly from GitHub by typing in: 

git clone


Step 2: Installing Bluetooth Library

To compile the library you need to add the bluez-libs-devel package:

   b) make<Enter>

   c) sudo make install <Enter>

   e) Type ls<Enter> to list all of the files

Step 4 - Running Example test app with an MCC DAQ device

Now you are ready to run some of the examples. If you are no longer in the mcc-bluetooth directory, navigate back by typing cd mcc-bluetooth <Enter>.

 a) Plug in your MCC Ethernet DAQ.

         b) Type ./test-bth1208LS <Enter>
