## Labview 2010 (Fall edition) on 64bit Ubuntu Linux

June 15th, 2011 | Categories: applications, Linux | Tags:

I needed to install Labview 2010 onto a Ubuntu Linux machine but when I inserted the DVD nothing happened.  So, I tried to manually mount it from the command line in the usual way but it didn’t work. It turns out that the DVD isn’t formatted as iso9660 but as hfsplus. The following incantations worked for me

sudo mount -t hfsplus /dev/sr0 /media/cdrom0 -o loop
sudo /media/cdrom0/Linux/labview/INSTALL


The installer soon became upset and gave the following error message

/media/cdrom0/Linux/labview/bin/rpmq: error while loading shared libraries: libbz2.so.1:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


This was fixed with (original source here)

 cd /usr/lib32
sudo ln -s libbz2.so.1.0 libbz2.so.1
sudo ldconfig

1. how many of the addons are available for linux

2. without competition NI has no incentive to improve it’s UI and the widgets. They are still the ugliest widgets you have ever seen.

3. I’ve no idea what addons are available. I just installed, showed that it could launch. I agree, it looks pig-ugly!

4. Can I Install labview 2010 on Ubuntu 11.04 (32bit)?
How?
ThankYou!
