Quartus 17.1 Lite Launch Crash on XUbuntu 14.04

Honored Contributor II

Hello everyone, 

I installed Quartus recently on a Linux machine in my University. 

The installation completed without problem and I can launch the program without any problems if I am logged in as administrator. 

If I launch Quartus as guest User it crashes instantly and the Report stats:

I'm thinking that it might be permission related, although I checked and the permissions seem to be the same with Quartus as with programs that run as guest. 

But I am not 100% sure because I am not too confident with linux. Quartus 13.1 Lite is also installed, and it works fine. 

Maybe one of you guys know a solution.
