SDK fails to launch after installing on Ubuntu

Jump to solution

I installed Vivado 2015.4 and the SDK using the WebPack on my laptop running Ubuntu 14.04. Everything besides the SDK seemed to install and run fine.

 

When I go to launch the SDK, I get the error "The Eclipse executable launcher was unable to locate its companion shared library." Also, eclipse.ini is blank. Is that how it should be? I thought I'd simply have to locate the library and put its path in the .ini file or something but perhaps not.

 

I should also mention that I have Eclipse Mars for C/C++ installed on this machine, but I don't think it's affecting this situation.

 

Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

You can download and install standalone SDK:

And, eclipse.ini should not be empty.

Hmm, is there a way to do a fresh install of the SDK without going through the full Vivado install again? The installer won't let me uncheck the Design Suite.

Hi @chrisdean11,

One of the common reasons for this error could be the wrong unizipping of the eclipse zip file (for ex. unzipping without recreating the directory structure).Try to unzip the zipped eclipse again with a different unzip tool (winrar or 7zip) and make sure that the necessary subdirectories are created during extraction.

 

Thanks,
Rajesh
