Hello, I'm trying to install the latest Quartus Prime Lite, free edition 184.108.40.2060, on Ubuntu (17.10). Launching "./setup.sh" works, but at the end of the Help installation, InstallBuilder hangs. If I re-run setup.sh and omit the Help install, then at the end of ModelSIM the same happens again.My hunch is that in both cases InstallBuilder might be running into this bug described as fixed in version "17.10.0 2017-10-30" of InstallBuilder, see: installbuilder not fully exiting at end of installation on some linux environments (https://installbuilder.bitrock.com/changelog.html) - it looks like everything (except help) DID get installed, however. At this point, I'm unable to get past the license step, the online connection fails - but that's a different issue, I suppose. -jcw
Hi JCW and NopeopleI had a lot of trouble installing this and (Ubuntu 15.10 and 16.04, not yet tried 17.X) moved very quickly from the X11 graphical installer to the "unattended mode". I made a single download-unpack-install-setenvs script, the meat of which is
VER=220.127.116.110 DIR=~/altera/17.1 $DOWNDIR/unpack.$VER/components/QuartusLiteSetup-$VER-linux.run --mode unattended --unattendedmodeui none --installdir $DIR --accept_eula 1 $DOWNDIR/SoCEDSSetup-$VER-linux.run --mode unattended --unattendedmodeui none --installdir $DIR --accept_eula 1If you're comfortable with command line you could try those, perhaps it bypasses the problems you're having. Let us know how you get on. Kind regards, Jonathan.
I got QuartusLiteSetup-18.104.22.1684-linux.run and ran it without problems - no design files appeared for selection.When I started quartus I got a message saying there were no design files and asked to download from Intel site. They were downloaded and automatically installed based on my selections. Exited quartus and restarted it OK.
