The target platform for this project is Debian Linux; Raspbian/Ubuntu.

The application runs on Raspberry Pi and PC.

The Pixel software used in this guide is distributed as a executable JAR file (Java Archive).  This means a recent version of the JVM is needed.

If you are using the lastest version of Raspbian, then a suitable JVM is already installed.

If you don't have at least Java 8 on the Raspberry Pi, then update and install it.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-jdk

Next, download the executable JAR file.

Now send the JAR to the Raspberry Pi, using your favorite file transer method.

The scp command is an option for file transfer:

or you can try from the Pi itself
