second, to use this ip, i need to use one of the following 2 tools:  

 

 

1- IP Catalog 

2- Platform Designer 

 

 

Please see two separate sub-problems when I try to use these tools: 

 

 

 

 

problem 1a- "ip catalog" 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"IP Catalog" option under tools menu in both Linux and Windows version of Quartus Prime Pro 17.1 is not functional. When it is clicked on it, nothing happens.

It sounds like there is something wrong with your installation of Quartus. Which edition are you using (lite, Standard, Pro)? Cyclone 10 GX is only supported in Pro.
