    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?

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

    Do you not have a drop down menu to the bottom right of the last post which says Moderation?


    NB this will only appear in forums you are a moderator of.

    ^^^^ 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
    more info: www.openecu.org

    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.

    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.
