Support for NIOSII 13.1 command shell and commands on Linux

Honored Contributor II

I am looking at replacing some Windows PC that run the NIOS II Command Shell and some commands. 


Where can I find that Linux versions are supported ? ... I have UBUNTU but heard the official support is via RED HAT. 


Thanks, Bob.

I actually don't think there is any distribution that is "supported". The installation notes (quartus_install.pdf) don't seem to be specific, although they do give you a hint for what packages you need on RHEL. 


For what it's worth, I had trouble with Ubuntu x64 back in ~12.1 times, and at that time switched to CentOS x64 which has been relatively problem-free for running Quartus.

Ok Thanks Ted, 


I don't need to run Quartus or the NIOS II 13.1 Software tools for Eclipse, but I would liek to run the NIOS II 13.1 Command Shell and its commands like the nios2-terminal and nios2-download to have a terminal and to load .elf's via an 

automation system.
