Hello, 

I've installed quartus ii web edition on my ubuntu 14.1. But when i try to run modelsim with sudo ./opt/altera/13.0sp1/modelsim_ase/linuxaloem, I have this error :  

 

./vish: error while loading shared libraries: libXft.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory 

 

Can anyone help me?

Usually that error means you need to install 32-bit libraries (which Quartus and its included tools use) on your 64-bit machine. I believe (not certain) that the 32-bit version of the one giving you the error is libxft2. Try: 

 

$ sudo apt-get install libxft2 

 

You may need additional 32-bit libs.
