Installing WaveForms on Ubuntu

Installing WaveForms on Ubuntu

WaveForms is a software built by Digilent to accompany their Analog Discovery 2 device, which is an all-in-one FPGA-based electronic tool that includes power supply, function generator, oscilloscope, digital pins control, etc.

To install the software on Ubuntu, one must install its runtime library first at their website. Noted that you need to download the files under Runtime- Latest Downloads tab; for Ubuntu, choose the .deb file version. Then, at your directory, run the following command: sudo dpkg -i RUNTIME_FILE_NAME.deb to install it.

For the actual software, install the .deb file from here and run the similar command: sudo dpkg -i WAVE_FORMS_FILE_NAME.deb.
