Installing CumulusMX

I've just switched from Windows to Zorin and want to install weather station software - CumulusMX. Can anyone help me through the process. A complete novice with Linux at the moment but improving!!

You might read here for more info.

The download link for the project CumulusMX is here:

The Source code is here:

First, you need Mono installed. To install Mono on Zorin OS:
You may first need:

sudo apt install dirmngr apt-transport-https


sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp:// --recv-keys 3FA7E0328081BFF6A14DA29AA6A19B38D3D831EF
sudo apt-add-repository 'deb stable-focal main'

sudo apt update && sudo apt install mono-complete

Unzip the download from the First Download Link in this post:

mv ~/Downloads/CumulusMX ~

Move the service file to its intended location:

sudo cp ~/CumulusMX/MXutils/linux/cumulusmx.service /etc/systemd/system/

Enable service:

sudo systemctl enable cumulusmx

sudo systemctl start cumulusmx

You can stop the service with:

sudo systemctl stop cumulusmx

Restart with:

sudo systemctl restart cumulusmx

Remove or add from autostart:

sudo systemctl disable cumulusmx
sudo systemctl enable cumulusmx

Looking over the source code, the program is written in C sharp which is compatible with Linux. The .dll files included are for Windows only and serve you no purpose on Zorin OS.

Many thanks for this. Followed your instructions including adding to autostart. However I can't see if those instructions worked and if so where I might find the program - any ideas?

I don't know... Since this is not a program that I have ever used.
According to the site starting the service should start the configuration window:

Here is a link to the Cumulus Forum:
