  • List of OBD2/OBDII software that works on Linux, native or with Wine

    What are all the OBD2 programs that are known to work in Linux? The ones I know of are freediag and nghost. Will Carman work on a Linux laptop or only a Nokia tablet? Are there any good Windows ones that run on Wine?

    scantool.net has been reported to work, although i don't have experience with it. Also obdgpslogger claims to support linux.

      I'm sure there's probably a button to do that somewhere eh?

        ^^^^ silly moderators ^^^^


        Anyways, to add to the list:

        Native:
        Jdash - Native Linux - kinda works for subarus
        Carman - Linux Maemo - sounds like it works well, too bad not for us.
        Magden - Linux based, but sold with hardware.

        WINE
        Tuner Pro - Opens in WINE - (wine lacks USB support)
        Zietronix - Opens in WINE then crashs.
        EcuFlash - Opens in WINE (wine lacks USB support)
        EvoScan - Fails to load in WINE, even with Winetricks + dotnetfx 2.0

        Windows Based, but untested in WINE:
        LearningView [Merchgod / romraider.com] - realtime display of Subaru learning parameters
        EcuExplorer [Calvin Cestari / tari.co.za] - logs from almost all modern Subarus
        MitsuLogger [MalibuJack] - logs from Mitsubishis
        EvoScan [Hamish Ahern] - logs from Mitsubishs and Subarus (not free)
        RomRaider [Jared / romraider.com] - logs from Subarus
        LogWorks 2.0 [Innovate Motorsports] - logs from Innovate WBO2 and other sensors - now has EcuFlash support

          Python based OBDII app

          There is nice open source python based application that could be easily used in linux.
          http://www.cs.unm.edu/~donour/cars/pyobd/
          I think it was originally written for Mac, so I had to change it to make it work on my Ubuntu laptop. I also changed the port to /dev/ttyUSB0 since I am using a USB device for communication (obddiag.net). The archive contains the script with my changes. I was able to read the DTC and display some sensor data for my Tercel.

            Also obdgpslogger claims to support linux.
            Hahahah "claims". I've probably done 75% of its development under Linux :-)

              I have only messed with ODB2 stuff a small amount and tested little- just accessport stuff.

              But a note: USB support under wine DOES work just fine with a small amount of manual config: creation of a symlink in ~.wine/dosdevices/yournamehere

              This does NOT mean the Windows software will work however: some windows USB devices use a USB software stack that does not work in linux yet, and apparently is difficult to reverse engineer.

              My Cobb Accessport is one of these devices so I have to run a virtual machine (VirtualBox) to use Accessport Manager or Tuner.

                  hi everybody
                  I'm trying to make working pyobd on Ubuntu.
                  When I launch pyobd I get :

                  COM port /dev/ttyACM0

                  but my ELM is on /dev/ttyUSB0

                  I think that I have to change ttyACM0 by ttyUSB0 in a config file, but I don't know where is this file.

                  If somebody can help me it would be very nice !

                  NB
                  I'm newbie on Ubuntu and I have poor english.

                  Thank in advance for all kind of help.

                        I just bought an OBD scanner and have a few programs working in Wine, I'm using Ubuntu 9.10.

                        ScanTool.net for Windows v1.13 (I had the best luck with this, detected and reset a Check Engine light)

                        Easy OBDII (works well in wine but didn't detect the Check Engine light)

                        wOBD v1.4.0 (looks like its going to work but I haven't plugged it into the car yet)

                        Here's a link to a lifesaver post if you're trying to get a USB scanner to work in Ubuntu
