Install Quartus || 10.0 on UBUNTU

Hi

to install quartus || 10.0 you will maybe face some problems during installation ..

Apparently there is a conflict with the file libX11.so.6. Here is a simple workaround:

  • Add the option –confirm to execute the install script.
sh altera_installer.external.sh --confirm
Creating directory bin
Verifying archive integrity... All good.
About to extract 49568 KB in bin ... Proceed ? [Y/n] Y
Uncompressing Altera Installer............................................................................................................................
OK to execute: ./altera_installer_gui --gui  ? [Y/n]
  • Before proceeding, in another terminal, go in the same directory than the install script and delete the file ./bin/libX11.so.6.
rm bin/libX11.so.6
  • Now you can proceed.
OK to execute: ./altera_installer_gui --gui  ? [Y/n] Y
Fontconfig error: "conf.d", line 1: no element found
Fontconfig warning: line 73: unknown element "cachedir"
Fontconfig warning: line 74: unknown element "cachedir"
  • The installer GUI should pop up.

That’s it :) enjoy quartus bye
