The Microchip MPLabX IDE, IPE and XC8 packages need additional 32-bit libraries and so their installation is slightly more involved than just running the installer scripts.
sudo apt-get install libc6:i386 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libstdc++6:i386 libexpat1:i386 wget http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/MPLABX-v2.10-linux-installer.run wget http://ww1.microchip.com/downloads/en/DeviceDoc/xc8-v1.32-linux-installer.run.tar tar xvf xc8-v1.32-linux-installer.run.tar rm xc8-v1.32-linux-installer.run.tar chmod +x MPLABX-v2.10-linux-installer.run xc8-v1.32-linux.run sudo ./MPLABX-v2.10-linux-installer.run --mode text sudo ./xc8-v1.32-linux.run --mode text
In my case it was not necessary to reboot.

It had been working proberly until I upgraded my (ubuntu) system two days ago. Since then the xc32 compiler hasn’t done anything. It can print its version number but dosn’t compile anything and doesn’t print any message.
Excellent. Worked first time on Ubuntu 15.10.
Still working on Ubuntu 16.04.1 & MplabX 3.35.
muchas gracias es buenaso su ayuda
On all versions on MPLAB IPE + LM17.1 or LM19

Tool – ok – PICkit3 S.No:BUR14102835
press Connect … Connection Failed.
Everyone is just installing MPLAB. I did not find anyone who uses PICkit 3 on linux. I have also followed the microchip instructions. Its not working.
