Hi guys,

Have you tried running the same setup on El Capitan? We are getting an error while brew install openlase

>>>>  -- Could NOT find ALSA (missing:  ALSA_LIBRARY ALSA_INCLUDE_DIR)

anyone facing the same issue? would be great if you could try on El Capitan.

Thanks a lot

Hi there,

I have attached the image to the post, did it not come up? Regarding the power: the laser came with its own power supply so that shouldn't be a problem.

You can find it here:

Hi there,

Thanks for the explanations. I have finally received the laser as well, and more doubts came up. I am pretty determined to get this going, so once it's all setup I can make a tutorial for dummies (like me) using the lasershark as the main board.

So this is the board that came with my laser, one cable goes to the power supply and other two go to the laser unit. I assume I need to connect Channel A of the lasershark to "CN1" of the laser pcb but I wanted to double check first

While somebody at my local hackspace is trying to build OpenLase for Mac (edy555 already did a great work here, but some dependencies seems to be broken, I am starting to try and understand if it would be possible to use the LaserShark board directly from a Mac.

Anyone managed? Any suggestions?

I have recently received my LaserShark board and a set of Galvo from ebay ( and struggled to understand how to connect them as the Galvos came with barely any information.

Jeffrey was really helpful via email and asked me to post the question here for future similar problems. This is his sketch of the connections between the galvo amplifier and the lasershark

I am still not quite sure about the rest of the connections, but I guess they go directly to the laser (which I haven't received yet). If anyone has a complete set and wants to post a picture/diagram that would be awesome..
