I have been trying to get Questa Starter Edition to work on my Xubuntu virtual machine for two days without success.
I have downloaded this file:
And installed it.
Then, i have generated this license from Intel SSLC:
I have downloaded the license file, renamed it to license.dat and copied it to /usr/local/flexlm/licenses/
Then I opened a terminal in /home/esteve/intelFPGA/21.1/questa_fse/bin/ where Questa is installed and i have run ./vsim to get this message:
Unable to find the license file. It appears that your license file environment variable (e.g., LM_LICENSE_FILE) is not set correctly. Unable to checkout a license. Vsim is closing. ** Error: Invalid license environment. Application closing.
I have tried to set the environment variable to "/usr/local/flexlm/licenses/license.dat" by several methods and I still get the same message. I am not a linux expert at all so I really don't know if I have set the variable correctly. I have tried the following methods:
- running LM_LICENSE_FILE="/usr/local/flexlm/licenses/license.dat". If I then run printenv LM_LICENSE_FILE i get nothing...
- adding the line LM_LICENSE_FILE="/usr/local/flexlm/licenses/license.dat" to the file /etc/environment and then running source /etc/environment. at this point I run echo $LM_LICENSE_FILE I get /usr/local/flexsim/licenses/license.dat in return.
However, after doing the above and trying to run ./vsim i still get the unable to file license message.
Any ideas out there?

Для запуска Questasim в Linux Mint 20.2 Cinnamon необходимо в конце файлов:
где вместо user подставить имя вашей домашней паки,
прописать переменную окружения LM_LICENSE_FILE,
добавив в конец обоих файлов строку:
Вместо license_file_path вставить путь к файлу лицензии.
Сохранить файлы и перезагрузить компьютер.
