Re: Ho to execute Quartus II in Fedora Linux

I'm new to this as well, but.. 

lines below starting with pound '#' are commands intended to be run from a bash shell, usually in a terminal window, and in this case, in X graphical mode. 

Also, I installed to /opt/altera, examples below reflect this. 

 

 

1. put quartus in your path,# export PATH=$PATH:/opt/altera/quartus/bin 

 

2. optionally save this change to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.profile# echo 'export PATH=$PATH:/opt/altera/quartus/bin' >> ~/.bashrc 

 

3. verify your path has quartus# env 

or# which quartus 

 

4. run it# quartus & 

 

 

 

As to how to learn, I'm new too. I'm following the tutorials I find from altera.com's documentation section. 

 

good luck. 

juan.

Look at the PDF for this tutorial:

has the commands you need to add to your .bashrc file so that the commands quartus and vsim are available on your shell. 

 

Cheers,

Re: Ho to execute Quartus II in Fedora Linux

You can lookup the executable file in your quartus installation directory and copy it to your /bin directory. Then make sure the file has executable permissions by tiping ls -l filename. If it doesn't use chmod to change permissions or add executable permissions. ie chmod +x filename. After that you can use your mouse to create a desktop shortcut or you can launch from command line by typing quartus (or whatever name the executable file for quartusII in bin has). 

You might need root access in different parts of these steps
