Quartus seems to work fine, but I am getting the following error when trying to run the vsim command.

Error in startup script: can't find package Img
Initialization problem, exiting.

I thought maybe I needed to install tkimg (or lib32-tkimg) but that didn't fix the problem.

Requires community/libpng12.

I updated this package to the current version. In doing so, I ended up reimplementing the installer to work around the deadlock bug. I have tested common functionality in both Quartus and ModelSim, but I cannot guarantee the installation is 100% functional. Please report any problems you have updating.

Sequencer: version 18.0 is already out, do you still intend to update this package?

Sequencer commented on 2018-02-24 04:14

I will take over this package.

I don't use Altera anymore so I haven't run Quartus in awhile. As much as I miss the polished feel of Quartus compared to Libero, I don't really have a need to keep it on my machine anymore so if anyone would like to take over maintenance, that would be great. Plus, I'm sure there is a much better way to do the install that I'm not seeing. I think I tried to update the script sometime last year but things weren't working quite right and work has me a lot busier than I'd like.

Hi all

Did someone run Modelsim from Quartus Prime V17 successful?
I've tried to start and it brings a error:
an't launch ModelSim-Altera Simulation software -- make sure the software is properly installed and the environment variable LM_LICENSE_FILE or MGLS_LICENSE_FILE points to the correct license file.

But there is no licence required for the free Version.

Thanks for ideas or solutions.

I noticed the same last time I was trying to get it working. The installer is freezing in headless mode so we can't get an automated installation unless Altera gets it working again. Your fix sounds like what I was having to do to get the installer to complete. Right now I'd say this package is pretty broken until the installer stops freezing up. Following the installation guide in the wiki is going to work much better.
