Execute SDx after installation in Ubuntu

Hi guys,

I've installed SDx in Kubuntu 18.04. During the installation, I checked the option "Create shortcuts in the Desktop", but those shorcuts have not been created, though.

 

Now I would like to be able to execute all the software contained in the SDx package (SDx, Vivado, ...) but I don't know how to to do it. I also would like to have a shorcut in my desktop to be able to run them easily.

 

Thanks in advace.!

Re: Execute SDx after installation in Ubuntu

Hello @kardec,

 

 

Please note that Xilinx SDx tools are not supported on this version of Ubuntu OS, and that is most-likely the reason why you are seeing this behaviour, as we didn't do any testing of our (Xilinx) tools on this specific machine.

 

Please check the "Software Requirements" section of the User Guide 1238, as this lists of all supported OSs that you can use with SDx:

 

https://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx2018_2/ug1238-sdx-rnil.pdf

 

Please try using one of the supported operating system and if you still see the same behaviour, please let us know and we will then be able to help you with this problem.

However, since we don't even have such Kubuntu 18.04 OS available, we won't even be able to reproduce the issue, in order to be able to help you to get this resolved.

 Unless there are other Kubuntu 18.04 OS users who've had a similar issue and have managed to overcome this problem, who can help you out with this, you are better off just installing SDx on a Support OS, as there no guarantee that you won't encounter some other issue further on the line, even if you get the tools up and running.

 

Hope the above is clear

 

Kind Regards,
Anatoli Curran,

Re: Execute SDx after installation in Ubuntu

Hello @kardec,

 

Thanks for letting me know.

 

In Ubuntu, if you do start -> search box, search with keywords Vivado or sdk, can  you launch GUIs that way?.

 

This is an alternate approach to start vivado or e.g. sdk through terminal:

 

open a terminal then run the below steps:

     For vivado:

Source /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/settings64.sh (source <install location>/Vivado/settings64.sh)

This line calls a hidden file in the Xilinx installation to set all necessary paths and environments

                  Browse to the directory in terminal:

                         /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/bin/vivado

                     Or

 Type: vivado

             The Vivado GUI tool will start after a few seconds

 

     For e.g. SDK:

                        Source /opt/Xilinx/SDK/2018.2/settings64.sh

                  Browse to the directory in terminal:

                         /opt/Xilinx/SDK/2018.2/bin/xsdk

Or

    Type: xsdk or xsdk &

 

The SDK GUI tool will start after a few seconds.

 

To avoid calling them manually everytime you want to invoke the tools, you can add below few lines to .bashrc file so every time a new terminal is open, the scripts are automatically called.

 

#Xilinx tools
source /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2018.2/settings64.sh
source /opt/Xilinx/SDK/2018.2/settings64.sh

 

Once the above commands are set in the script, you will only need to run commands “vivado” for Vivado and “xsdk” for SDK.

 

If this is in relation to SDK, please also check this AR and see if it helps:

 

https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/67580.html - SDK fails to launch on Ubuntu 16.04

 

That is, to set the SWT_GTK3 environment variable to 0 before starting Vivado

export SWT_GTK3=0

to /opt/Xilinx/SDK/2018.2/.settings64-Software_Development_Kit_SDK_.sh

this  should run export SWT_GTK3=0 on a sh script for eclipse.

 

Hope the above is helpful.
