Hi  RPCVEngineer, Diogo,
Thank you for your comments.
NI included the updated LINX toolkit package in LabVIEW 2020 Community Edition.
This is compatible with the lvrt20-schroot runtime on the Raspberry PI.
I don't know if NI include the updated LINX toolkit package in LabVIEW 2020 Professional Edition.
I think the LINX package available for download in the VI package manager is only compatible with LabVIEW 2014 for the Raspberry PI target.
Hopefully NI will update the package soon. 

I haven't tried the NI vision runtime on the Raspberry PI.

There is an OpenCV toolkit for LabVIEW running on the Raspberry PI as mentioned by Diogo Aparecido.

The manual install steps detailed at
may work on the Buster version of Raspbian. if the procedure does not work it could be due to the different c++ compiler paths in the lvrt20-schroot.
It may be possible to compile the libraries using the original lvrt-schroot.

Hi Andy



 Thank you for your answer, I've already tried this step by step on lvrt-schroot without sucess, When I execute this command "cat /etc/opkg/arch.conf"  the results is: The file or directory doesn't exist

Thanks for posting this.  I used a Raspberry Pi 4B and all went OK!

People have successfully installed LINX on Pi 4 hardware.  But I think officially NI still doesn't support it.  That being said I've seen NI enthused to see LINX running on various non-official hardware.  I tried it and it seemed to work fine.

Hi everybody, 


i have tried to make the actual version of Linx work on a RPI 2 & 4 with LV 2019 & 2020 following the guides mentioned in this thread. But i had no success at all. 

While trying to connect to the target, i get the following error message:

Both RPIs were fresh installed with the actual image.

Has anyone an idea how to fix this?


thanks in advance!
