Populate the target and boot the image



1 Open a terminal

Open a terminal on the host computer.

Ubuntu terminal

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

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

2 Check the host computer Internet access

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

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

PC $> 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:

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

Check again the Internet access with command:

PC $> 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

3.1 STM32CubeProgrammer

Info.png STM32CubeProgrammer requires 1.8 version or later of the Java platfrom.

PC $> sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jre
PC $> sudo update-alternatives --config java

Select the java-8-openjdk configuration.

  • Create your STM32MPU tools directory on your host computer
PC $> mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools
PC $> mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-2.0.0
  • Create a temporary directory in your STM32MPU workspace
PC $> mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/tmp
  • Download STM32CubeProgrammer v2.0.0 in the following directory
    $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/tmp
  • Uncompress the archive file to get the STM32CubeProgrammer installers
PC $> cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/tmp
PC $> unzip SetupSTM32CubeProgrammer.zip
  • Execute the Linux installer, which guides you through the installation process. Select "$HOME/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-2.0.0" as the installation directory, when it's requested by the installer
PC $> ./SetupSTM32CubeProgrammer-2.0.0.linux
Splash screen
Welcome page
Installation path
  • Add the STM32CubeProgrammer binary path to your PATH environment variable
export PATH=$HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-2.0.0/bin:$PATH
  • Check that the STM32CubeProgrammer tool is properly installed and accessible
PC $> STM32_Programmer_CLI --h
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
                       STM32CubeProgrammer v2.0.0                  
     -------------------------------------------------------------------

3.2 USB serial link

  • Install the libusb on your host computer
PC $> sudo apt-get install libusb-1.0-0
  • To allow STM32CubeProgrammer to access the USB port through low-level commands, proceed as follows
PC $> cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MPU-Tools/STM32CubeProgrammer-2.0.0/Drivers/rules
PC $> sudo cp *.* /etc/udev/rules.d/

4 Download the image

  • Create your STM32MP15 Starter Package directory on your host computer
PC $> mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0
PC $> mkdir $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0/Starter-Package
PC $> cd $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0/Starter-Package
  • Download the STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0 Starter Package to the following directory:
    $HOME/STM32MPU_workspace/STM32MP15-Ecosystem-v1.0.0/Starter-Package
  • Uncompress the tarball file to get the binaries for the different partitions of the image, and the Flash layout files
PC $> tar xvf en.FLASH-stm32mp1-openstlinux-4.19-thud-mp1-19-02-20.tar.xz
