3 steps for downloading, installing and running the Linux Galaxy SDK suitable for your machine vision camera

In this article, we will guide you on how to download, install, and use Linux Galaxy Software Development Kit (SDK) suitable for your machine vision camera hardware. Our SDK enables you to modify camera parameters and acquire images from USB3 and GigE machine vision cameras. It runs on both X86 and ARM hardware like Nvidia Jetson series and Raspberry Pi. The images in this article are taken from an X86 industrial development board running Linux (Ubuntu 20.04). By following these three easy steps, you will be able to download, install, and use the Galaxy View SDK on Linux.


Step 1: Download the Linux Galaxy SDK

Visit our download page and select the appropriate download link for your computer hardware architecture. If you have X86 hardware, download number 4. For ARM hardware, download number 5.

Step 2: Install the Linux Galaxy SDK for your machine vision camera

After downloading the Linux Galaxy SDK, open the folder and locate the README file. It will guide you through the installation process step by step. Ensure that your Linux-based system meets the minimum requirements. Once you have verified that, you can then proceed to open the Galaxy_camera.run file. This file will install the Linux Galaxy SDK, including Galaxy View and GxGigeIPConfig.

Step 3: Configurate the machine vision camera and run Galaxy View

Upon successful installation, a new folder named “Galaxy_camera” will be created.

Open this folder and locate GigeIPConfig and GalaxyView.


If you have a machine vision GigE camera connected to the Linux Galaxy SDK, you will need an IP address. GigeIPConfig allows you to program the correct IP address into the machine vision camera. You can either use the AutoConfig button to automatically program a working IP address or set one manually.

Galaxy View

After configuring the machine vision camera, you can now execute the Galaxy View software. This program enables you to capture pictures and modify industrial camera parameters without the need for coding. If you have any questions about using the Galaxy View software or Linux Galaxy SDK in general for your machine vision cameras, feel free to contact us.

In conclusion, downloading, installing, and using Linux Galaxy SDK for your machine vision camera hardware is straightforward. Follow these three simple steps and you will be able to modify machine vision camera parameters and capture images with ease.
