You're right, I didn't even think about clearing my cache. Thanks!!

@klanc, are you absolutely sure this is not just a corrupted download? The md5sums come directly from Intel, and I just confirmed that QuartusLiteSetup is correct.

EDIT: Got a corrupted download, ignore this

@gwatcha, the latest HLS compiler is only available from the Pro distribution, but says it doesn't require an additional license. I packaged this version. Can you try to see if it works?

@g8sqh, I can't reproduce. Did you run the jtagd in quartus/linux64 by accident? The one in quartus/bin is a shell script that sets up LD_LIBRARY_PATH, among other things. That one runs fine.

g8sqh commented on 2020-08-07 21:59

You will also need to run as LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/intelFPGA/20.1/quartus/linux64 /opt/intelFPGA/20.1/quartus/linux64/quartus

Otherwise the jtagd doesn't get libboost version 1.59 and some other libraries

In addition, you need libudev-shim installed or jtagd complains:

No USB device change detection because not found

gwatcha commented on 2020-07-04 19:44

How can I install it with the HLS compiler? Is there an option to pass to the QuartusLite setup? Altera says HLS comes with Quartus Lite, but I noticed there's no quartus/hls directory.

I have updated to the 20.1 release, and following wall07's request, I've split the package into the existing components. quartus-free is now a meta-package that will pull all components by default.

Please tell if there is any missing functionality due to this change.

For me default 51-usbblaster.rules didn't work. I had to use

# USB Blaster

Quartus 19.1 has issues with its perl distribution on Linux. When compiling a QSYS project, I get the following error:

Can't locate Getopt/ in @INC (you may need to install the Getopt::Long module) (
   @INC contains:
   ) at /opt/altera/19.1/quartus/../ip/altera/sopc_builder_ip/altera_avalon_pio/ line 18.

It seems like the perl distribution points to the wrong directory because the library is located at /opt/altera/19.1/quartus/linux64/perl/lib/5.28.1/Getopt/

I've found a bunch references in the perl distribution pointing to the wrong directory ( )

A "fix" seems to be to link to the system perl executeable:


I created a post in the Intel forum:

wall007 commented on 2019-12-20 21:41

I have created a patch that splits the package into several packages using the PACKAGE SPLITTING FUNCTION.

Thus it is possible to install only the components that are required for the specific use case to save up some disk space. It should not impact the build time or the space needed for building. The "quartus-free" package is now a meta package, that installs all components. So there should be no difference for the one who are already using this package.

The patch is avaible at: If you wish, you can take it upstream.
