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

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

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:

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.

Please add /opt/altera/18.1/quartus/sopc_builder/bin/ to the path in

Would it be appropriate to let this pkgbuild also include the eclipse system that is not present anymore starting from 19.1?

If not, for anyone wondering how to still get it, these are the instructions:

I've had problems with "NiosII Software Build Tools for Eclipse" not rendering correctly. I've fixed it by starting it manually with:

SWT_GTK3=0 /opt/altera/18.1/nios2eds/bin/eclipse-nios2

Warning: quartus-free depends on the packaged bzip2 version 1.0.6 and below. Latest working: bzip2-1.0.6-8-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

Otherwise, you might get errors like this: Warning (12251): FIR.fir_compiler_ii_0: Generation Error: /opt/altera/18.1/quartus/dspba/backend/linux64/fir_ip_api_interface.bin: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Workaround: Create the missing symbolic link:

cd /usr/lib/lib64

ln -s
