Simple Tool for Installing CHDK (STICK)
for Windows, OSX and Linux (Ubuntu)



           



The 'Startup' Page

When you start STICK, the screen should look something like this:

At this point STICK is waiting for you to drag a photo from a folder on your computer and drop it on the pink part of the window. The photo you drop must be a JPG taken with the camera you are going to use with CHDK, and it must not have been altered with photo editing software in a way that destroys the camera information within the JPG. Note that before you drop a photo you can choose which build version STICK will try to locate when a photo is dropped by checking the appropriate choice box.

If drag-and-drop fails to work you can use the 'Browse' button to select a JPG file.

When you drop a photo STICK will analyse it and display the next screen.

If at any time you click the "Show Log" button, STICK will display the log window which looks like this:

The log displays all the messages which have appeared in the message line while STICK has been running and, if the 'debug' option in the stick.properties file is set to 'yes', a lot more information about what happened.
