Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is not officially supported by LabVIEW. However LabVIEW can be successfully installed on this OS. Using the 32 bt version of this OS, simply running the INSTALL script and following the wizard procedure brings you to a successfull setup.
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 64 bit can be used, too, but an error during the wizard prevents the success of the setup. The error is related to a missing 32 bit library, libbz2.so, required by LabVIEW and not available on the 64 bit version of ubuntu 10.04. The solution is represented by the download of the required library and the creation of a symbolic link that meets the setup wizard requirements.
The complete procedure required in order to install successfully LabVIEW on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS is the following:
sudo ln -s libbz2.so.1.0 libbz2.so.1
sudo sh ./INSTALL
Well, for copy and past operation, here is the command to install the getlibs tool (missing above 😞
sudo dpkg -i getlibs-all-deb
