Simulation window is not opening

Hello!

 

I'm trying to launch project on ubuntu 18.04.

 

Compilation was successful. Then I start RTL simulation which is also successful, but simulation window is not opening and nothing happens.

 

Am I missing something?

Hi Polina,

 

What do you mean by RTL simulation successful but simulation window not opening.

 

Can you attache image and elaborate steps.

Also tell about Quartus tool version & edition used.

 

Regards

I have Quartus Prime Lite 19.1. Here is what happens when I start RTL simulation.Screenshot from 2019-12-17 14-58-15.png

Also I tried to start modelsim manually and it produces the following error

Failed to obtain lock: couldn't open "/home/user/.modelsim_lock": file already exists Error in startup script: Initialization problem, exiting.   Initialization problem, exiting.   Initialization problem, exiting.   while executing "Transcript::action_log "PROPREAD \"$key\" \"$value\""" (procedure "VsimProperties::Init" line 59) invoked from within "VsimProperties::Init $MTIKeypath" (procedure "PropertiesInit" line 18) invoked from within "PropertiesInit" invoked from within "ncFyP12 -+" (file "/mtitcl/vsim/vsim" line 1) ** Fatal: Read failure in vlm process (0,0)

So, it looks like modelsim is not working properly for some reason.
