I am using Ubuntu 18.04 and I need to install NI-VISA.
But according to
NI-VISA is not available for .deb-based linux distributions.
I 'd like to know if there is any way to install NI-VISA on Ubuntu 18.04?
I followed the steps as described in
I downloaded NI Linux Device Drivers version 2020.
After installing the repository addon and refreshing the package list, the following cmd
sudo apt install ni-visa
E: Unable to locate package ni-visa
apt-cache search ni- | grep visa
python-pyvisa-py - Backend that implements a large part of the VISA in pure Pythonpython3-pyvisa-py - Backend that implements a large part of the VISA in pure Python 3
However, according to
the driver's name is ni-visa. I'm not sure what is wrong?
Go to Solution.
Switched to use pyvisa-py as a VISA backend, and use pyvisa as a frontend.
Also need to add a rule for accessing USB-linked devices on ubuntu, see
