Hi, after seeking a supported platform, I installed fresh new an Ubuntu 18.02 4 distro, after setting up all board setting and updating installation then I launched QUartus 18.1 lite setup.
Few minute after was installed. Clicking on Icon doesn't start, from CLI this error from library was shown:
quartus: error while loading shared libraries: libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Browsing forum this is a known old issue, is Quartus beta tested on supported platform?
Clearly Linux Mint 19.1 is based on Ubuntu 18.04: same scenario.
Linux Mint 17.3 has old libraries on or was cured long time ago ...
Why use old library when is no more supported on new distro?
Hi Shyan, I posted solution with issue, I checked waht you proposed me but it is not same library, this post is solved at my side, was just a todo remainder.
Issue appear on fresh new Ubuntu 18_04 and formerly exactly same on Linux Mint 19.1:
get .xz or .gz, follow screen on end of download page if in doubt.
unpack on a directory then cd to build install and link
- cd to where unpacked
- sudo make install
- sudo ldconfig
After that Quartus start from icon without hassle, not sure about programmer and USB.
