gResistor is a free and open source resistor color codes calculator application for Linux, MacOS and Windows. Resistors are marked with colored bands to show their resistance, tolerance and temperature coefficient. Using gResistor you can easily calculate the resistance, tolerance and temperature coefficient values. In this application you can find the values of 4 bands, 5 bands and 6 bands resistor. Just select and enter the color codes, it will show the values.
How to Install gResistor on Ubuntu Linux
gResistor electronics application is available via flatpak packages from flathub. So if you don’t have them then install flatpak and flathub on your system and restart your system after the installation. Now press ctrl+alt+t keys to open terminal app. You can also open it via the applications menu. In terminal run below gResistor resistance calculator application flatpak install command.
flatpak install flathub eu.stethewwolf.gresistor
It will install the latest version of gResistor on your system. After that open and start gResistor using below command.
flatpak run eu.stethewwolf.gresistor
How to calculate resistor color codes using gResistor software
Check your physical resistor and select the band type. It comes with 4 band,5 band and 6 band options. Now based on the resistor color select the color codes in the application. It will instantly show the resistance, tolerance and temperature coefficient values.
You can also uninstall it via
sudo flatpak uninstall eu.stethewwolf.gresistor
