I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 with Virtualbox and extensions running with Centos 6 virtual machine. Quartus Prime 18.1.0 is installed and working, and I have worked through several labs in the "4 Hour FPGA Course".
The lab where the USB Blaster is connected is where I am stuck.
The host machine is Linux Ubuntu 18.04. I had to add group vboxusers. Also configured the Centos machine with USB; Altera USB-Blaster is added.
Within the Centos vm from lsusb:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 09fb:6001 Altera Blaster
From the host side (Ubuntu) this command:
VBoxManage list usbhost
Altera USB Blaster is "captured".
Using the Tools -> Programmer, I see:
USB Blaster variant [2-1]
So Quartus can see the DE10-Lite board via USB.
Clicking "Auto Detect":
Unable to scan the device chain. Please check the hardware setup.
All looks good to me. Any ideas?
