I have installed intel quartus prime standrad edition and running sudo ./quartus from directory home/intelFPGA/20.1/quartus/ the license setup window appears but it is blank, so I cannot add the license file that I have.

Kindly guide me regarding this issue.

It ran successfully after deleting the sudo word in the terminal

command to run:

sudo ./quartus (didn't work)

./quartus (worked)

After that I gave the license file location.

But it is asking for a license file each time I restart the quartus software.

It also ran into some other error Which I mentioned here.

Hi Qazi,


Could you install following libraries?

Install libc6:i386, libncurses5:i386, libxtst6:i386, libxft2:i386, libstdc+

+6:i386, libc6-dev-i386, lib32z1, lib32ncurses5, lib32bz2-1.0, and libpng12

libraries.

Note: • For Ubuntu 18.04, additionally install libqt5xml5 and liblzma-dev libraries.


Once done, reinstall Quartus Prime. You may need to refer to document below related to 

Intel® FPGA Software Installation and Licensing

https://www.intel.com/content/dam/www/programmable/us/en/pdfs/literature/manual/quartus_install.pdf


Then make sure the device .qdz file is in same directory with Quartus installer. Install the device support.

Hi Qazi,


From your link given, I can see you are struggling with Quartus and device installation. Please make sure all the installation is good. By default there should not be a blank. Refer to the document below related to Intel® FPGA Software Installation and Licensing.

I have uninstalled the software and installed the libraries suggested (Although I found that all those were already installed).

But even after that when I reinstalled the software the problem is still exist.

 

They software is still asking for licenses everytime I open it and then ask to installed any device. but during installing the cyclone V device it again gives that error that

 

"error reading INI file".

Also where is this INI file located. I didn't found in any location.

I had seen somewhere on web that it should be in .alter.quartus but this directory only contains quartus2.qreg file.
