Hello,

I was trying and for me it works. I followed the steps:

1. Download board files from the following link: https://github.com/Digilent/vivado-boards/archive/master.zip

2. Extract the archive and navigate to the folder: C:\Users\...\Downloads\vivado-boards-master\vivado-boards-master\new\board_files

3. Open the Vivado board file folder: C:\Xilinx\Vivado\2015.4\data\boards\board_files

4. Copy from the extracted archive the "zybo" folder into Vivado "board_file" folder.

5. Restart Vivado

This should work

Hello,

I have the same problem. I am using Ubuntu 14.04 and after this proceeding the zybo board was not added on the list. 

Is there any other solution or configuration I should do?

Thanks,

Hi Thays,

I have asked some of our applications engineers about this; they will get back to you here on the forum.

Thanks,

Hi guys,

I haven't used Vivado on Linux yet, but I think it should still work. Do the other boards show up in the list? Are you making sure to restart Vivado after copying the files over?

Hi Thays,

I installed Vivado on linux, then moved the files within vivado-board/new/boardfiles to /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2015.4/data/boards/board_files

This worked. Can you verify that the contents of vivado-boards/new/board_files are in the correct place?

Hello,

That's strange because the files are there in the folder /opt/see thiXilinx/Vivado/2015.4/data/boards/board_files , but I do not know what is wrong. Maybe Vivado can not see Zybo folder and I do not know why.

Thank you!
