Install VIPM on Ubuntu 20.04

Recommended Posts


Although I already have LabVIEW runtime 2015 and 2018 on Ubuntu 20.04, the VIPM is always unable to find it. I tried multiple solutions but failed to make it work.


Is there any tutorial to illustrate how to install on Ubuntu 20.04 ? LabVIEW 2018 is already installed but VIPM is the issue I hope someone could help me with.


I followed this tutorial to allow installation of LabVIEW 2015 runtime.

It's a good question.

VIPM 2017 works with LabVIEW 2017 and older. So, you need VIPM 2020 to install packages into LabVIEW 2020.

We don't have a VIPM 2020 for Linux, yet.

What a lot of people do as a work-around is install LabVIEW 2017 on Linux, use VIPM 2017 to install the packages, and then copy them over to LabVIEW 2018-2020.  Another, similar, approach is to install the packages on Windows or Mac machine and then copy them over to Linux.

Thanks for your patience and understanding on this.
