I'm running MATLAB on Ubuntu 16.04 and trying to use HDL Verifier to capture data from an FPGA. Everything works with Windows systems, however I run into this error when I test it on my Linux system. This makes me believe that the Toolbox is not compatible with Linux, since it's still looking for a dll.
Error using fpgadebug_mex
Failed to load shared library dmgr.dll. Make sure that you have installed Xilinx Vivado cable drivers.
Error in hdlverifier.FPGADataReader/setupImpl
I have installed Vivado and the correct cable drivers already. Is there a way to change the Vivado library it's looking for from Windows to Linux?

Hi Nicholas,
As per my understanding you want to capture data from an FPGA to MATLAB on a Linux machine. Error message that you have mentioned is seen when the drivers are missing. To use Digilent download cable, you must preinstall the Digilent Adept2 for Linux operating systems. For more information on JTAG connection, see
