Installation Instructions

Below you can find the different platforms where you can integrate the SDK. Please proceed to the platform you have chosen to integrate with.

Before proceeding, please download all necessary files for your device. You can find all the necessary files in the Downloads section.

Linux

Prerequisites

  • glibc 2.16+
  • x86_64 / ARM architectures
  • libcurl

Installation steps:

  1. Extract libraries and symbolic links from IDTECH/ folder.
  2. Create file /etc/ld.so.conf.d/idtech.conf - This file should contain the path to the extracted libs directory in Step 1.
  3. From the command line run sudo ldconfig.
  4. Additionally, if using a NEO2 (family of devices which includes the VP6300 and VP5300) device, please copy the NEO2_devices.xml from libs/IDTECH/ folder into your project root directory. Permissions must be set for the USB device. This can be achieved by creating a new file in /etc/udev/rules.d named usb.rules - It must have the following contents: SUBSYSTEM=="usb", MODE="0666". If you don’t want to add permissions for all devices you could add the IDTech vendor ID
  5. Add the PayconexPlus IDTech plugin libraries as dependencies to your project.

NOTE: When running in Java, you must also set the VM option: -Xss100m

Done! With your environment properly configured you are now ready to perform your first sales transaction. Check out the Coding 101 section for more information.
