Nios 2 EDS not starting

Hi there,

i'm trying to get EDS to run on my Ubuntu 22.04. After following the README whichs content is duplicated here: https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/articles/000086893.html

I get several error messages when running ./eclipse-nios2.

The first one was:

xkbcommon: ERROR: failed to add default include path /tools/qt/5.15.6/1/linux64/rel/share/X11/xkb

My solution was to just create this path. After that i got:

xkbcommon: ERROR: 1 include paths could not be added:
xkbcommon: ERROR: /home/matthias/.xkb
xkbcommon: ERROR: Couldn't look up rules 'evdev', model 'pc105', layout 'us', variant '', options ''

 

to solve the path error i again just created it. But this "config" (?) file is missing.

Can someone help me out? What did i do wrong installing eclipse? How can i fix this?

 

Thanks in advance!

Matthias

Hi Matthias,


Eclipse CDT 8.8.1 linux can be launched properly in both Ubuntu 18.04 and 20.04 LTS. Most likely still not being supported in Ubuntu 22.04 LTS yet may check out this OS support list https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/programmable/support-resources/design-software/os-support.html. Probably have to stick with old Ubuntu first.


Thanks,

Best Regards

Sheng

Hi,

I've encountered same problem and I found solution that works for me here:

https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-Quartus-Prime-Software/Nios-II-SBT-Crashing-on-Linux/m-p/1210994

 

The solution that works for me:

instead of running ./eclipse-nios2

run in console:

export SWT_GTK3=0
export SWT_WEBKIT2=1
./eclipse-nios2

 

Hope it helps
