How to launch Vivado on Ubuntu when I installed it on desktop?

I have Ubuntu 18.04 and have installed Xilinx Vivado 2019.1.

Installation went fine and I installed it in the home/Desktop directory instead of the usual opt/Xilinx directory. I want to know how can I launch it now that I have installed it. This are the files I have on Desktop/Xilinx:

DocNav

Downloads

sdk

Vivado

xic

'Documentation Navigator.desktop'

'Vivado 2019.1.desktop'

'Vivado HLS 2019.1.desktop'

Help is much appreciated!

Hi @pedro_azevedo,

To launch Vivado using the terminal, you can use anyone of the below options:

1) Execute "./Vivado/2019.1/bin/vivado" : This will directly launch Vivado.

2) Execute "source ./Vivado/2019.1/settings64.sh": This will set the PATH variables for the tools. So by just entering the tool name in the terminal, you will be able to launch the tool. For eg: just input "vivado" and it launches Vivado tool and the same applies for other tools like vivado_hls, sysgen etc.

To launch Vivado using Ubuntu GUI, you can just try double clicking the desktop icon of the Vivado tool that was created.

Thanks,

Aravind.
