Installing Labview2020 on Debian

Recommended Posts

I have installed Labview 2020 on Dedian Buster using the rpm to deb conversion method via alien. Due to Architecture mismatch i deleted the *i386.rpm files before conversion.

My Problem is that after creating a project at "Build Specification"-> "rigth click" i am only able to select "Source Distribution". Application does not show up as an option. 

I will be grateful for any suggestions.

Thank you in advance.

Which edition of LabVIEW did you install?

The Application Builder comes with LabVIEW Professional. It is not included with LabVIEW Base or LabVIEW Full.

I can build executables on my installations of 2018 and 2019 on Ubuntu, FWIW. Used alien as well (alien --install --scripts or something the like. Seem to remember also --target=i386 to force the installation of some component). Have not yet installed a 2020 so can't say, but is there chance that you skipped one rpm?

I have checked the LabView version and it was the full version not the pro version. After installing the pro version appbuilder works just fine.

Here is how i installed it using alien and dpkg.

mount lv2020pro-linux.iso /media/cdrom0
cd /media/cdrom0/
sudo mkdir /home/ll/Downloads/Software/labviewpro
sudo cp -r * /home/ll/Downloads/Software/labviewpro/
cd /home/ll/Downloads/Software/labviewpro/
sudo rm ni*i386.rpm
sudo alien -k -c *.rpm
sudo -s
dpkg -i labview-2020-core_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-desktop_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-exe_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-pro_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-ref_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-rte_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-help_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-examples_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i labview-2020-appbuild_20.0.0-1_amd64.deb
dpkg -i lvsupport2020-vianalyzer_20.0.0-f32_amd64.deb
dpkg -i ni*.deb

I want to thank everyone for their replys.

This process worked for me (though not verbatim) in order to install LabVIEW 2020 Community Edition on Zorin 16 Linux. Thank you @Yaw Mensah.

The .deb package names varied slightly for me and I had to install alien on zorin and dpkg manually before starting above:

sudo apt-get install alien dpkg-dev

As of writing this post, I haven't messed with LabVIEW enough on Zorin to say whether everything is working 100%, but I was able to at least launch LabVIEW.

I did have to go into /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2020-64 and create a symbolic link to the executable to launch with using the Zorin "start menu" entry:

cd /usr/local/natinst/LabVIEW-2020-64/
sudo ln -s labviewprofull labview
