To use the samples from Luceda Academy, you first need an IPKISS installation and license. If you don’t have IPKISS yet, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get you started with an evaluation.
Install IPKISS and the license by following these instructions.
Download and install PyCharm (https://www.jetbrains.com/pycharm/).
Download the Luceda Academy samples:
- Go to Download samples and subscribe.
- Check your e-mail inbox, where you will receive an e-mail containing the link to download the samples. If you don’t receive the e-mail, please check your spam folder and add the sender to the Safe Senders list (click here for a guide on how to do that).
- The default download location is C:\luceda, but you can choose a different folder if you wish, as long as it has write access.
Configure PyCharm to run the Luceda Academy samples correctly:
- Open PyCharm.
- Click on File -> Open and select the Luceda Academy folder (the default location is C:luceda).
- Set up the correct IPKISS Python interpreter:
- Go to File -> Settings…
- In the “Project” section, select “Project Interpreter” and a new window will pop up.
- Click on the gear symbol on the top right of the window and select “Add…”. A new window will pop up.
- Tick “Existing environment”, then click on the three dots on the right side.
- Select the IPKISS Python interpreter: C:\luceda\ipkiss_330\python\envs\ipkiss3\python.exe
- To make sure IPKISS knows which source directories to look into, add the following folders to the PYTHONPATH:
To do that, right click on each folder and click on “Mark Directory as…” -> “Sources Root”.
Test that everything runs correctly:
- In the Luceda Academy project in PyCharm, open training\getting_started\component_mmi\mmi_layout.py
- Right click on the file or on the code editor window and select “Run mmi_layout”.
