Execution of vlib Failed (Ubuntu 16.04)

I have been running into an issue where I cannot run simulation because of some errors where it cannot find "vlib". It's running Quartus 17.1 Lite and Modelsim-Intel SE 10.5b on Ubuntu 16.04. 


I run from Quartus, and it automatically runs the simulation with a script, but gives me several errors. By the looks of it, the program is searching in a non-existent directory for .../linuxpe/vlib. I found that file in .../linuxaloem/vlib, but i don't understand why it's doing it that way. I had previously had to install a bunch of 32-bit libraries to get Modelsim to work at all. Is there something that needs changed or am i missing some libraries?:

Did you find a solution?


I fixed this by making a symbolic link to direct the linuxpe folder to linuxaloem, as follows:

> cd <install dir>/intelFPGA_lite/17.1/modelsim_ase

> sudo ln -s linuxaloem linuxpe
