I need to install an ebeam edge which need driver. It only works on Windows / Ubuntu. How do I know if I can make it run on Ubuntu Mate or Windows IOT on my Raspberry Pi? Do you think it is possible?

  • I don't suppose you've got the Bluetooth version?

  • Is the source code available ? I guess not. There is no chance this software runs on the Pi at all. Linux != x86_64 , my friends.

The short answer is no, you can't install this application to run on a Raspberry Pi, regardless of which OS you decide to put on it.

As far as I can tell from their website, their applications require an x86 processor to run. Unfortunately, for your project, all current models of the RPi have an ARM processor. They're fundamentally different, and are not compatible.

We have a blog post that gives a fairly broad explanation of the idea.
