@tomKPZ Thank you for your response! That didn't do the trick for me, but it got me to what causes it: I have the EmojiOne fonts installed, (re)moving the file from /etc/fonts/conf.d/75-emojione.conf actually fixes ISE.

Your fontconfig file seems to be invalid, I get this upon starting ISE:

Fontconfig error: "/home/markus/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/02-xilinx-ise.conf", line 10: invalid attribute 'mode'

Now I just need to find a way to disable EmojiOne for ISE, I'm sure there is a way through their config file.

@markus-k I was having the same issue. I was able to solve the crash by editing the Exec line of /usr/share/applications/xilinx-ise.desktop to the following:

Exec=/usr/bin/sh -c "unset LANG && unset QT_PLUGIN_PATH && source /opt/Xilinx/14.7/ISE_DS/ && LD_PRELOAD=/usr/lib/ ise"

But then I ran into another crash, which I was able to fix by creating a file ~/.config/fontconfig/conf.d/02-xilinx-ise.conf with the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 <match target="pattern">
    <test name="prgname">
    <edit name="family" mode="prepend_first">
      <string>DejaVu Sans</string>

Then the issue was solved!

ISE is segfaulting on my system since a few weeks when starting, both with manual install and this AUR package. Anyone with the same problem? Not even xsetup wants to start graphically, the batch setup works though. It was working nicely back then and I have no idea what changed.

GDB shows me this backtrace:

@Emil: Done.

@Maverick: Added, with some small adjustments.

Maverick commented on 2019-04-16 15:16

Would be also nice to include the .desktop file from wiki into installation.

Emil commented on 2019-03-15 15:58

@cyrozap If you could appy this patch then fpga_editor works too.

I am getting an error

@aaron_danielson: I've now added qt4 to the dependencies.

aaron_danielson commented on 2018-11-27 19:10

The Xilinx License Configuration Manager ('common/bin/lin64/xlcm') requires a library '' -- this library file is part of qt4. Perhaps this should be added to the dependencies.

cyrozap commented on 2018-11-18 01:51

@alex.forencich: Maybe that could be fixed by symlinking the embedded JRE to a system version?

@wyre: Unfortunately there's no light variant of ISE, and since Xilinx considers ISE to be EOL they won't be releasing any updated versions.
