I downloaded and installed ISE Webpack for Linux from Xilinx website. It installed without problems, and I am able to use some of its functionalities.
However, every time I launch the program, it tells me there is no license and tells me that the license manager is going to start when I click "OK". But when I click OK, nothing happens.
I also tried launching the license manager by doing: Help -> Obtain a license Key and Help -> Manage License, but in both cases, nothing at all happens.
When I use the program, I am able to do synthesis and perform simulations, but when it tries implementing my design (place&route, etc, ...) an error message appears telling me no license file was found.
What else can I do to get the license manager to appear/ get a license for the Webpack edition ?

set the environmental variable XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE to the location of license file. for example:
setenv XILINXD_LICENSE_FILE /opt/Xilinx/Xilinx.lic

To get a license, the license manager (XLCM) will take you to www.xilinx.com\getlicense.
A webPACK entitlement is granted to anyone who is registered (registering an account is free).
Once you generate the License, follow the instructions from the previous post.

But I do not use license file. I use web pointer to licence, from my school, for example:
Where do I input that?
I have the same problem: latest Xilinx ISE 14.7 almost succesfuly installs on latest Ubuntu 14.04 (with exception of USB drivers failing to install), but when I try to get license or open license manager, nothing happens. Same symptoms as described by previous user. How do I input web address pointer as a license?
