Quartus works on Arch Linux but not all links on the "Home" page work nor on the Help menu. These are links like "Compare Editions", ..., "What's New", and "Notifications." What system variables need to be defined?

Hi Randall,

Actually Arch Linux don`t have full support to the Quartus tool so I would like to recommend you, use one of the operating system recommend in below table,

You can refer the below links, but I am not sure for Arch Linux,

Thank you Vicky. I'm suspicious of the claim that Arch Linux doesn't have full support to the Quartus tool, save its menu items that do not work nor its home screen. I suspect Quartus is trying to link to an external website and that the dependency to make that call is not installed by default on Arch. Note that I've not found any aspect of Quartus, ModelSim, nor Synopsis that doesn't work.

 

I'd like to suggest that Intel use a Linux universal package manager (such as Flatpack (https://flatpak.org/) or Snappy) since Arch Linux supports them all.

 

Thanks again.
