I actually have this same problem. I don't think this topic has been solved yet so I will "reawaken" it by posting here
I am running Ubuntu 10. I do the following in the /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/ folder, where I installed it:
./settings32.sh yields these messages:
. /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/EDK/settings32.sh /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/EDK
. /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/ISE/settings32.sh /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/ISE
. /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/PlanAhead/settings32.sh /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/PlanAhead
. /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/common/settings32.sh /opt/Xilinx/12.3/ISE_DS/common
When I run "ise" it tells me that the command is not found and then suggests some packages that I could apt-get.
I can't find anything that explains what is wrong. I'd appreciate the help. Thanks!

Please post the output of
after you sourced the appropriate settings??.sh

Sorry about the late reply. This has been a busy few days for me...
The output off echo $PATH gives me this:
Note that this is after I source and run the settings32.sh script. It doesn't look like anything xilinx specific has been added.
I did figure out how to run the programs, though! The programs reside in the folders [path to xilinx install containing the settings32.sh file]/IDE/bin/lin and [path to xilinx install containing the settings32.sh file]EDK/bin/lin.
Just change to those directories and run the scripts. For example, I would go to the ISE/bin/lin folder and type in ./ise to run the Project Navigator. For some reason, all the guides tell you to just type in "ise" as if it were a command. Maybe this has to do with the settings32.sh script not working properly.
Now if only I could get the license manager to show up...

I found that too. It's in [xilinx installation directory]/common/bin/lin.
Then do this: ./xlcm. However in linux you can't use the Xilinx License Configuration Manager. You have to set one of XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE or LM_LICENSE_FILE environment variables to the location of your license.
You can do this by setting an environmental variable normally in linux:
for a floating license, for example.
Also, I think this might have to be done every time you restart the computer or xorg (the GUI). You can put this in a bash script called startise, though, and put that script in /usr/local/bin so that whenever you want to start ise, it'll source your settings variables, load the license file and then run ise.
If you want an outline of startise, I might put one up later. If you ask nicely. :D

I've just reinstalled ISE 12.3 after moving from a Windows to a Linux machine and thought I'd only have to drop the license file in an appropriate place and tell ISE where to find it.. But the menu item 'Help > Manage License' doesn't do or launch anything, and upon checking the tips above, I found that there is no 'xlcm' command or file at all in the 'lin' directory. There is one 'xlicmgr', but that doesn't appear to be the thing talked about, is it? Is there a better way than having to manually add environment variables?

Good day :)

Under Ubuntu 10.4, I have created the following script file in my home directory to try to get this to work:
#startise - Starts the Xilinx ISE app
I run the script file using '. ./startise', and ISE seems to start OK and run. I haven't written any code with the ISE yet, since I'm new to all of this.
Does this seem logical? What is everyone else out there doing?

Could you guys explain me how to install Webpack? I just installed Ubuntu, I only used Linux years ago for a research on singleboards. I have no idea how to install it. I mean, i don't even know where to start. There are multiple .xinstall folders... Could you help me get started? Thank you for the help in advance!
