I am seeing the same error.  I could use those files.  It looks like I need to get a machine to do a CentOS install for just this type of scenario. 

 

At the end of the my .deb install, I got the following.  I'm not sure if that has anything to do with it.

 

Errors were encountered while processing:
libnidrumc1-bin
ni-488.2-gpibenumsvc
ni-daqmx-ef
ni-pal-support
ni-roco
ni-visa-lxi-discovery


Each of those packages installs an init script to /etc/init.d (/etc/init.d/nidrum, /etc/init.d/gpibenumsvc, /etc/init.d/nidevldu, /etc/init.d/nipal, /etc/init.d/niroco, /etc/init.d/nilxid).  I suspect the conversion to deb didn't handle these properly for some reason.

I encountered similar errors at the end of my .deb install, I had the following

 

Errors were encountered while processing:
libnidrumc1-bin
ni-daqmx-ef
ni-pal-support
ni-roco

 

Only difference was each package still installed an init script to /etc/init.d. Has anyone got nipal to start?

So.... just stumbled across this looks like someone is working on it?

http://download.ni.com/ni-linux-desktop/early-access/2019.12/

 

I added the repository and installed ni-visa, and ni-visa-conf, and support for labview.  After a reboot everything is running fine (As long as a run as sudo, i think i need to mess with visa user permissions.)

Great find! I added the .deb repo and installed ni-daqmx. Everything works as expected. Did run into the same issue with having to run as sudo - but doesnt seem to have an impact if only using the DAQmx API

Hello,

Thank you for the link. I try to use NIDAQmx with a cDAQ-9171 on Ubuntu (Linux version 5.3.0-59 / Ubuntu 18.04.1).

I tried to use the repository given on the link above. But I do not know which package is needed to install (nidaq-mx do not want to install correctly : it says that some ni dependances are needed but they do not want to install). I am not Linux expert. Someone could help me?

Thank you in advance,
