    Thanks Oblivian for changing title of this thread, and deleting the duplicate thread.

      Has anyone been able to get modesmixer2 to work on Pi Zero please? Thank you

        On 27th May 2020, Raspberry Pi foundation has released 64bit Raspbian which can be used on RPi3 and RPi4 as both have 64bit cpu.

        For those who are using 64 bit Raspbian on Pi3 or Pi4, the ModeSMixer2 (installed by automated script method given in First Post), will fail to start unless following workaround is done:

        sudo mkdir libssl-armhf   
        sudo dpkg -x libssl1.1_1.1.1d-0+deb10u3_armhf.deb libssl-armhf    
        sudo cp libssl-armhf/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/  
        sudo cp libssl-armhf/usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/ /usr/lib/arm-linux-gnueabihf/  
        sudo systemctl restart mm2
        After above workaround, the ModeSMixer2 (installed by automated script of post #1) on 64 bit Raspbian works OK.

          Name changed too

          So may see it now called "Raspberry Pi OS" more often.

          Changed to more in-house development team while other raspbian lines may differ.

          Posts not to be taken as official support representation - Just a helpful uploader who tinkers

            Thanks to sergsero for advising yesterday that he has now made available the 64bit version of modesmixer2 ( z).


            Based on sergsero's advised, today I have added to my Github page, a bash script for automated installation of 64bit modesmixer2 on RPi4 running 64bit Raspberry Pi OS.

            Automated Installation Script:

            sudo bash -c "$(wget -O -"

              ModeSMixer2 Installation Script at Github

              Updated on February 23, 2021

              Change log:
              (1) The modesmixer2 is now run by user mm2 (previously it was run by user root).

              (2) The max range curve data file distances.json is created and owned by user mm2 and is located in folder /usr/share/mm2 (previously it was created and owned by user root and was located in root partition /distances.json )

              (3) The max range plot is persistant and survives restarts and reboots. To clear the curve and start fresh plotting, do following:
              #You must stop mm2 before deleting the file distances.json. sudo systemctl stop mm2
              # Delete file distances.json
              sudo rm /distances.json #(For installations done BEFORE 23rd February 2021)
              sudo rm /usr/share/mm2/distances.json  #(For installations done ON or AFTER 23rd February 2021)
              # Restar modesmixer2
              sudo systemctl restart mm2
              Link to Github where installation guide and installation script for mm2 (modesmixer2) for various devices (Pi & PC), and various OS (Raspberry Pi 32-bit & 64-bit OS, Ubuntu20 x86_64, Debian10 x86_64, Kali Linux 2020 amd64, Arch Linux 2021 x86_64) are located:
