Vivado 2019.1 java error on start_gui with multiple monitors attached (Ubuntu 18.04)

Vivado 2019.1
Ubuntu 18.04 Kernel 4.15 with multiple monitors attached.

Vivado crashes when launching the gui with the following error:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Window must not be zero

Same issue as with 2018.3. No error when only one display is enabled. 2018.2 and earlier versions work fine.

Hello @lematthias .

I have reported this again and have highlighted that there is still an issue in relation to unable to start vivado gui when Multiple monitors are used.

Please leave this with me and I will update you once there are any updates.

Kind Regards,

It isn't the most elegent, but if you ssh into your own box with X11 forwarding, you can launch the GUI and have it X11 forward to yourself.  When you do it that way it thinks there is only one monitor.  I haven't tried this yet with 2019.1, but that worked for me in 2018.3.

I'm having the same problem.  Ubuntu 18.04, 3 monitors, NVidia 430 driver.  Java errors on 19.1 won't start the gui.

Hi @martyo and thank you for your answer.
Unfortunately ssh with X11 forwarding does not help in my case. Neither for 2018.3 nor for 2019.1.
I am using vncserver for now...

lematthias,

Im using this script to overcome this problem. I found this solution somewhere here in the Xilinx Forums!

#!/bin/bash

Xephyr :1 -screen 1920x1024&
DISPLAY=:1
openbox&
source /home/nassarf/data/programs/xilinx/Vivado/2018.3/settings64.sh
source /home/nassarf/data/programs/xilinx/SDK/2018.3/settings64.sh
vivado $1
