Quartus Prime Lite 22.1 Can't Load Queata in Ubuntu 22.

I have already installed Quartus Prime Lite 22.1 on Ubuntu 22. It works fine but when I want to start simulation from: "Tools -> Run Simulation Tool -> RTL Simulation" nothing happens.  I have already got a licence file for Questa from Intel Self Service Licece Center Based on instructions of :

https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/docs/programmable/683472/22-1/and-software-license.html

and also added the environment variables.

All settings seems to be correct:

in "Assignments -> Settings -> EDA Tool Settings"  I choosed the Questa-Intel FPGA as the simulation tool which is its default choice.

In "Tools -> Options -> EDA Tools Options"  the directory address of Questa-Intel FPGA is set to: <Address To Quartus>/intelFPGA_lite/22.1std/questa_fse/linux_x86_64/

which is correct.

I have found the solution, based on the following topic:

https://community.intel.com/t5/Intel-Quartus-Prime-Software/Quartus-Prime-Lite-21-1-on-Ubuntu-21-10-Questa-does-not-start/m-p/1327018#M71324%3Fprofile.language=en

 

Just right click on the Quartus Prime launcher on desktop and open it with a text editor, then modify the "Exec=..." line as follows:

Exec= env LM_LICENSE_FILE=<path_to_Questa_licence_file>     <path_to_Quartus_Prime>/intelFPGA_lite/22.1std/quartus/bin/quartus --64bit

 

Note that just the red part is added inside the existing code. In my case this line is as:

Exec=env LM_LICENSE_FILE=/home/amir/Softs/intelFPGA_lite/22.1std/licenses/LR-121951_License.dat /home/amir/Softs/intelFPGA_lite/22.1std/quartus/bin/quartus --64bit

 

then Save the launcher file. This way the issue is fixed.
