1 Open a terminal[edit]

Open a terminal on the host computer.

Ubuntu terminal

All the commands preceded by have to be executed from the host computer terminal.

  • Create your STM32MPU workspace directory on your host computer
 mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace
 cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace

2 Check the host computer Internet access[edit]

  • An Internet access through http and https protocols must be provided.

The command below allows to check for Internet access through http/https protocols:

 wget -q www.google.com && echo "Internet access over HTTP/HTTPS is OK !" || echo "No internet access over HTTP/HTTPS ! You may need to set up a proxy."

If an 'OK' message is returned, the network is well configured.
In such case, skip the rest of this section.

Any other likely situation indicates the need for a proxy for http/https protocols.
The best solution to set a proxy for http/https protocols is via the shell variables http_proxy and https_proxy:

 export http_proxy=http://<MyProxyLogin>:<MyProxyPassword>@<MyProxyServerUrl>:<MyProxyPort>
 export https_proxy=http://<MyProxyLogin>:<MyProxyPassword>@<MyProxyServerUrl>:<MyProxyPort>

Check again the Internet access with command:

 wget -q www.google.com && echo "Internet access over HTTP/HTTPS is OK !" || echo "No internet access over HTTP/HTTPS ! You may need to set up a proxy."

3 Install the tools[edit]

3.1 STM32CubeProgrammer[edit]

Info white.png Information
  • STM32CubeProgrammer requires 1.8 version of the Java platform.
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre-headless
sudo update-alternatives --config java
Select the java-8-openjdk configuration.
  • Install OpenJFX for Ubuntu®18.04
sudo apt purge openjfx
sudo apt install openjfx=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-jni=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-java=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2
sudo apt-mark hold openjfx libopenjfx-jni libopenjfx-java
  • Create your STM32MPU tools directory on your host computer
 mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools
 mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-x.y.z
  • Create a temporary directory in your STM32MPU workspace
 mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/tmp
Warning white.png Warning
ecosystem release v2.0.0 require STM32CubeProgrammer V2.4 or upper
  • Uncompress the archive file to get the STM32CubeProgrammer installers
 cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/tmp
 unzip SetupSTM32CubeProgrammer.zip
  • Execute the Linux installer, which guides you through the installation process. Select "$HOME/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-x.y.z" as the installation directory, when it's requested by the installer

Screenshots, done with STM32CubeProgrammer V2.5.0, are given as examples below:

Splash screen
Installation path
  • Add the STM32CubeProgrammer binary path to your PATH environment variable
export PATH=$HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-x.y.z/bin:$PATH
  • Check that the STM32CubeProgrammer tool is properly installed and accessible
 STM32_Programmer_CLI --h
                       STM32CubeProgrammer vx.y.z                  

3.2 USB serial link[edit]

  • Install the libusb on your host computer
 sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0
  • To allow STM32CubeProgrammer to access the USB port through low-level commands, proceed as follows
 cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-x.y.z/Drivers/rules
 sudo cp *.* /etc/udev/rules.d/
