My company bought the Arria 10 SOC Development kit recently.

I try to install Quartus Standard Edition 20.1.1 on Ubuntu Desktop 18.04.05(VMware).

After I execute quartus, the License Setup Required Window shows "nothing".

I try to install Lite Edition, it shows nothing too.

I follow the Youtuber's steps to install quartus, the license window shows "nothing" too...

Is there anyone met the issue like this?

 

My Building Procedure.

1. Create Ubuntu Desktop 18.04.05 on VMware

2. Install nessesary librarys

apt install -y lib32ncurses5 lib32z1 libx11-6:i386 libxext6:i386 libxft2:i386

Hi 

 

I found the real root cause.

Don't execute quartus software that the authority is "root".  (I don't understand why user can't use root authority to execute quartus )
