./vish: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file

Hello

 

Following the steps mentioned in https://github.com/intel/FPGA-Devcloud I gained access to Intel DevCloud and the GUI using X2Go client. I can successfully setup and run Quartus on these servers. However, when I try to run Modelsim using the ./vsim command I get the following error.

 

./vish: error while loading shared libraries: libX11.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

 

I believe that the reason for this problem is that the OS is 64bit but vsim tries to access 32bit libraries. I also looked at https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-High-Level-Design/Need-library-for-32-bits-app-on-DevCloud-for-... but it didn't help me solve the issue.

 

A post on http://twoerner.blogspot.com/2017/10/running-modelsim-altera-from-quartus.html elaborates the problem in detail but solves it by installing the required 32bit libraries which cannot be done on DevCloud because I don't have sudo access.

 

Can you please help me with this problem.

Thank you.
