I understood your answer.

Thank you your support.

Hi Anne,

If I browse to the corresponding link "Get Software" at "Linux Driver for VL53L5CX multi-zone sensor" STSW-IMG025 - Linux driver for VL53L5CX multi-zone sensor - STMicroelectronics there is "no data available in the table". 

Seems like the download link is NOT available. Could you please recheck and provide the link to the Linux driver package?

Thanks

Thanks for the alert. It appears someone got something wrong. Give us a few days and we promise to fix it.

Hi John,

a few days have passed and there is still no Linux driver offered for VL53L5CX at https://www.st.com/en/embedded-software/stsw-img025.html#overview 🙁. Could you please raise the priority to fix that? Is there an alternative way to get to the driver sources?

Thanks + regards
