I'm currently rather time limited. Anyone willing to become Co-Maintainer?

Two things to get this working:
1. Working url for lib32-freetype2, same md5sum:

2. Either install `lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs` yourself from aur or add it as a depend.

By the way, the new Quartus Prime Lite 15.1 (new name for web edition) works using these same hacks:

You will also need to update the pkgver to if you go for the new Prime.

@Masshat Package builds/installs fine for me.

However, attempting to run modelsim (/opt/altera/modelsim_ase/bin/vsim) results in:

/opt/altera/modelsim_ase/bin/../linux/vish: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

It appears that ncurses 6 was released at the beginning of August 2015. Installing lib32-ncurses5-compat-libs from the AUR (in place of lib32-ncurses) allows Modelsim to start, and Quartus seems to still work OK. It may be worth editing the dependencies to reflect this.

I found out that Quartus compiles really slow on arch linux.
It took 4 min to compile while on windows/Mint it only took half a minute.
Do someone knows how to fix it? Any solution would be appreciate!

The makepkg command fail when check the dependencies.

I apologize for my tardiness, I wasn't able to test your patch last week.

It seems to be working now.
