When launching Quartus 10.0sp1 on ubuntu 32bit, i get the following error:/opt/altera/10.0sp1/quartus/bin$ ./quartus export: 137: 2000.00: bad variable name At first the quartus worked as it should but then this error started to appear, terminating some launches. Now i can barely run Quartus 1 out of 10 or more times. Even after reinstall. As a side note. When i was able to run quartus, it always acted as on first run (shows intro splash, recent documents empty). I does however remember the location of my license file, even after reinstall.

Thank you for letting me know. I did some brute mass search and one seemingly unrelated advice worked:--- Quote Start --- I tried removing ~/.altera.quartus/ I also tried removing /tmp/mw_* --- Quote End --- (http://www.alteraforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=6064) Now the Quartus even remembers my recent documents. I just hope it stays that way.

[SOLVED]: Here is how I did it.Assume I have my installer at "/media/data/Archives/Gadgets-Apps/de0-nano-fpga-kit/design-suite/autorun" in my Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit system. First issue I faced: libz.so.1 not found. Run the following command to include the mentioned path to library path, which should fix this issue. # export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$LD_LIBRARY_PATH:/media/data/Archives/Gadgets-Apps/de0-nano-fpga-kit/design-suite/autorun Second issue is the one this thread is talking about: " Quartus "export: 137 ... bad variable name" error" It is because of dash as default shell than bash. The following commands should fix it in Ubuntu 14.04. $ sudo update-alternatives --install /bin/sh sh /bin/bash 100 $ sudo update-alternatives --install /bin/sh sh /bin/dash 200 $ sudo update-alternatives --config sh While the above command prompts for default shell, select bash as default one. Then run the installer:# cd /media/data/Archives/Gadgets-Apps/de0-nano-fpga-kit/design-suite/autorun# ./autorun This should get it done!
