sopc won't start, quartus ii 12.1, ubuntu 12.04

Hi 

 

I have quartus ii 12.1 web edition and ubuntu 12.04. When I click the Tools->Sopc Builder I get the splash screen briefly but then nothing, it doesn't start. Same thing when I try it from the command line: ./sopc_builder/bin/sopc_builder. I get the splash screen but then nothing. There are no error messages. If there's a log file I could look through, please let me know. Any ideas? 

 

Thanks...

I figured it out. First to see what is wrong with sopc_builder try this: 

 

$ sopc_builder --debug_log=sopc-log.txt 

(you can use any log file name you choose, my guess is, they all offer some sort of command line debugging) 

 

when I looked in the log, it said this: 

libXtst.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

 

so I did this: 

$ apt-get install ia32-libs 

 

this installed the 32 version of libXtst.so.6, now it fires up 

 

remember, this is all for ubuntu 12.04, not sure how this will work for other flavors 

 

Happy designing...
