LabJack and the new Raspberry Pi

The Raspberry Pi is a single board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation with the intention of stimulating the teaching of basic computer science in schools.  The board packs a lot of features, including 700 MHz processor, VideoCore IV GPU and 256 MB of RAM, and only costs $25 USD.  

So can it run a LabJack? Absolutely! In a recent forum post an enterprising customer connected a Raspberry Pi to a LabJack U3-HV, and got a simple Python script running.  

They are being sold by a few different retailers, but expect delays; LabJack just put an order in, and our source is projecting a 5 month lead time.

More information on the Raspberry Pi can be found on their home page:




I tried to install the driver exodriver, but i receive a erro message. Namely:

make: execvp: ./ Permission denied

make: *** [install] Error 127


Can you please advise me what to do?



This error can be caused by not having the execute permissions. Sometimes the execute permissions are lost on the file when copying it around. In a terminal you can check this by running the "ls -l" command in the labjack-exodriver/liblabjackusb directory. The permissions on should look something like this:


If not, you can correct the permissions of the file
with the following command (run in the labjack-exodriver/liblabjackusb directory):

    $ chmod u+x
    (sudo may be required)

Afterwards, try the install script again.
