Hey Zhongliang96998,


There is currently no support for Ubuntu. However, there is Linux support for several other flavors such as Redhat or CentOS. If you were to switch to one of these other flavors then you could find the device drivers from the following location:


NI Linux Device Drivers


You can find out more information from the following article:


Can I Install NI-DAQmx on Ubuntu?


I hope that helps!

Hi GeraldM,

thanks a lot for your reply! But it's very sad to heard that. 

Based on the project, we cannot changed our OS from Ubuntu18.04 to windows or other linux. 

Do you have a plan to provide the driver for ubuntu system?


best wishes,
