Gautam helped me execute the commands mentioned above and Pylon has now been installed on the shared directory. We extracted the pylon installation from Johannes's directory to the shared drive and executing the command tar –C /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/GigE –xzf pylon SDK*.tar.gz created an unzipped pylon5 folder in /scripts. The ./setup-usb.sh set up the udev rules for the GigE.
The installation took place without any errors.
The Pylon viewer app can now be accessed at /opt/rtcds/caltech/c1/scripts/GigE/pylon5/bin followed by ./PylonViewerApp
Should I go ahead with the installation in the shared directory?
