Setting up Quartus II 13.1 error message


Hi, I hope I'm posting in the correct place.

I installed Quartus II 13.1 on my Linux Mint Sylvia 18.3. I made sure to install the 32-bit dependencies that I found listed on this site: Matthew's Mumblings: Making ModelSim ALTERA STARTER EDITION vsim 10.1d work on Ubuntu 14.04

I noticed no error messages during or after install. But when I try to open Quartus, I get the following:

First off, when it asked to Retrieve the Web License it won't connect. I had read that these web versions that need a license.

Secondly, this error message, beyond which I cannot proceed

*** Fatal Error: Segment Violation at (nil)
