  1. I am using a Windows 10 laptop to connect to a Raspberry PI 3 B+ (Raspbian OS) with LINX. I have managed to connect to the Target, but once connected, I try to install Labview but I always get the following message: " Installation failed. If this is the first time the installation has failed try again. If this error persists search, then post on the LabVIEW MakerHub forumsat Target configuration updated." LOG: Connecting to target...

  2. Hi everyone, LINX can be installed on the Raspberry Pi 4. The LINX 3.0 Target Manual Install Process ( did not work due to changes in the latest version of Raspbian. Here is the procedure that I used to install LINX. The procedure also works on the Raspberry Pi 2B, Pi 3A+, Pi 3B and Pi 3B+ running Raspbian Buster. 1. Setup the Raspberry Pi using the latest Raspbian Buster Image. 2. Change the default password for the Pi account on the Raspberry Pi. 3. Setup a WiFi or Ethernet connection from the Raspberry Pi to your router. 4. Enable SSH on the Raspberry Pi. 5. SSH into the Raspberry Pi or open a terminal window on the Raspberry Pi desktop. 6. Check that the Raspberry Pi can access the Internet by entering the command ping -c 4 7. Enter the commands shown in bold below. Note: The text may wrap due to the web browser window size. I recommend copying the text into a text editor to see the original formatting. The commands are in the attached file linx_install_commands.txt # Enable i2c and spi sudo raspi-config nonint do_i2c 0 sudo raspi-config nonint do_spi 0 # Update Raspbian sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y # Install LINX sudo sh -c 'echo "deb [trusted=yes] binary/" >> /etc/apt/sources.list' sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install -y lvrt-schroot # Move the nisysserver.service and labview.service files to the systemctl folder sudo mv /etc/systemd/system/ /lib/systemd/system sudo mv /etc/systemd/system/ /lib/systemd/system # link to the Raspberry PI device driver file sudo schroot -c labview -d /usr/lib -- ln -s # Enable the nisysserver.service and labview.service to start on boot sudo systemctl enable nisysserver.service sudo systemctl enable labview.service # Start the nisysserver.service and labview.service sudo systemctl start nisysserver.service sudo systemctl start labview.service You should now be able to connect to the Raspberry Pi from the LabVIEW Project Explorer.

  3. Hi, I recently purchased one of the LabVIEW Home Computing Kits with the Beagle Bone Black along with a PmodDA2 (I2C interface) and a PmodDA1 (SPI interface) from Digilent. My goal is to make low cost, LabVIEW based controller for an EV that I have built. I was able to get the BLINK VI to work without any issue once I realized what Debian Image would work with LINX. (As mentioned on this forum 8.6 is the latest). I am currently running 8.4 on my BBB but I cannot seem to get the LINX I2C interface to work. The code required for the PmodDA1 appears straight forward compared to other, more complex I2C Pmods. I have attached a screen shot of the LINX I2C Write error I keep getting. I get a similar error if I try to perform a read. I know that channel 2 is the only I2C channel available on the BBB according to a LINX pinout for the BBB I found on the LabVIEW MakerHub site, so the only issue I can think of is that I am just not sending the 17 bit slave address (0101000b) correctly. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
  4. Hi Everyone! Any plans for a new version of LINX for the Raspberry Pi? Cheers, Andy.
  5. Hi guys: I need know how create a Custom Command in LINX for read a encoder of two square pulses from the digital pins of Arduino in LabVIEW. Thanks.
  6. I am using Raspberry Pi 3 with raspbian jessie and installed labview 2014(32bit) in my windows 7 laptop. Everything goes smoothly as I connect to my rpi using the linx target configuration. The problem is that everytime deploy a vi (I deployed blink), i get this: Initializing... Calculating dependencies... Checking items for conflicts. This operation could take a while...

  7. Hi, Following the tutorials, I was able to install labview and linx. I had developed a program, and it was running quite well. But whenever I turn my computer off and on, beaglebone fails to connect. In the sense, I'm able to connect to the beaglebone through the Linx target configuration and I can even ssh using putty. But when I go into my project and try and run the VI on BBB, it regularly pops up the error saying "Failed to connect to Target". I have vigourosly searched the entire linx forum for such an issue. And have tried everything that has been suggested but to no avail. My question is how can it show connectivity in Target configuration, but fail to connect inside the project when I try to run the VI? I am seeing another peculiar event too. Sometimes, if I reinstall the software using Target Configuration, BBB connects perfectly temporarily. And it disconnects pretty soon. But the process of reinstalling also does not happen regularly. It often fails and the message that says to post in the forum pops up. I have viewed the log and wasn't able to find anything substantial. I have tried manual installation and it fails too. This irregularity in connection is something that bothers me. I am not able to figure out a pattern too. When it connects, it is perfect.
  8. Hi Anyone, I need your help in hurry, I'm trying to connect Arduino Due with LINX in LabView, but I couldn't found firmaware for my board, is there any suggestion for me?
  9. Hi! I need to use NI USRP-2932 for a project. Can I ask if it is possible to install NI USRP driver to the raspberry pi? I am using Raspberry pi 3 model B, with raspian Jessie OS; LabVIEW 2014, and LINX to integrate my rpi and labview.
  10. As I have not received any reply from the National Instruments website nor the arduino community. All the hope that is left is in this community. I am currently working on a project controlling linear actuators powered by stepper motors. Even though I can control the direction and speed of the motor I cannot control the steps it will do. I remember on LIFA there was StepsToMove function? How can I specify the exact steps? Which block should I use? The duration should be an answer to that (ms connecting wire) But it does not work at all. The motor continues after the specified time. Bonus Question: How can I stop the stepper through the front panel, whatever I do even if I stop the vi, the motor keeps the last command.
  11. Hello, guys! I have 2 weeks left of my bachelor thesis, and i really need help on this one.. I have build a IR-sensor to measure the RPM of a DC-motor, using Arduino mega2560 and Arduino IDE it works really well. But i need to use Labview to control a system, and need the feedback from my sensors, for this i will have to use a custom command. Attached is a code i found online to read the RPM from the sensor, and it works well with the arduino IDE. I need to write the code for the custom command, but having 0 experience with coding and arduino im really stuck.. Is anyone willing to help a desperate student? sketch_may11c.ino
  12. How Do I Install the LINX LabVIEW Interface for Arduino Toolkit without VIPM? Where can I downloaded from? My computer is not on the network. Thanks
  13. A customer has asked us the following question: " I recently purchased a copy of Labview home bundle and Im trying to connect through the USB/serial port to a Chipkit Max 32 in order to download the LINX firmware wizard I have followed the instructions in the tutorials and all packages I believe are downloaded. the latest version of MPIDE and MPLAB are also installed. when using the wizard it does not recognize the com port the device is connected to COM4 and the modification has been done as per the tutorial to 1ms latency time. all it displays is ASRL1: and cannot be changed. it says its downloading an then stops and says completed but nothing happened it did not actually download. I have tried it on 3 different machines all with the same issue. "
  14. It appears that LabView only accesses the IO features on the targets through Linx and does not get compiled and run independently. Am I correct? Or is there a circumstance where LabView code can be compiled and run as a stand alone? (I'm looking into the WF32 for a stand alone project.)
