The plugdev group doesn't exist. I suppose it should be created during the package installation, shouldn't it?

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.

gbs commented on 2020-06-28 22:18

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

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:
