We have two oscilloscopes from picoscope (6404D and 2408B). We are using picoscope beta 6 linux version. Im listing down the problems that we are facing in the above mentioned software version.

1. when selected dBm, resistance option is not displayed
2. start capturing button doesnt work. we can only stop the capture. When we want to restart the capture it doesnt work.
3. Under tools option there are only two options:
a) serial decoding
b) preferences
All the other tools option which are available in windows are not available in linux version.

Hi Nutan,

I currently do not have access to a Linux PC to check item 1 but I will check this next week.

For item 2, we believe this may have been fixed as it has not been repeatable with testing internally. There should be a new release soon as our Software Test team should be in the process of testing a new build.

We are working towards feature parity with the Microsoft Windows counterpart although this might occur with the next major release.
