AKAI MPK Mini install error

Post by Smokey_DeVille »

Greetings! I just picked up an Akai MPK mini midi controller, and when I attempt to run the setup file, I get the following error:

Archive: /media/Akai MPK mini Ed/setup.exe
[/media/Akai MPK mini Ed/setup.exe]
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /media/Akai MPK mini Ed/setup.exe or
/media/Akai MPK mini Ed/setup.exe.zip, and cannot find /media/Akai MPK mini Ed/setup.exe.ZIP, period.

I was able to run the program just fine in my Windows 7 terminal. I am running Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid with all of the Ubuntu Studio audio apps and have WINE installed. I've scoured the web but have found no feedback on this issue.

Thanks in advance for any feedback.

Try typing the following in a terminal window (use TAB to autocomplete or just copy from here):

wine /media/Akai\ MPK\ mini\ Ed/setup.exe

Hi,
have you used it with LMMS?
do you have to use it with it's own software?
what is needed for the setup.exe you ran?

I'm thinking about buy this midi keyboard.

thanks in advance

Michele
