We use a floating license server here at work. I added the export definition for XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE and the settings64.sh script to my .bashrc. If I run vivado from a terminal session everything works. If I use the launcher setup by the Vivado installer the XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE env variable doesn't get set.
Where/what is the proper way to set this up so that I can just double-click the launcher icon to start Vivado?

Open Vivado License Manager through Vivado GUI (i.e., Vivado launcher --> Vivado GUI --> Help --> Manage License) and check for XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE is set?
If it is not set, set this environmental variable using export command with root privileges.

Thanks for the reply Vinay.
I'm surprised I didn't think of the easiest solution right off the bat. I simply created a shell script that sets the licensing variable and executes the settings64.sh script then starts vivado. Then I changed the launcher icon to run that script instead of directly starting Vivado.
