Vivado 2018.2 installation on linux - am I supposed to install as sudo?

Jump to solution

I'm installling Vivado 2018.2 on a VM running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS (64-bit).

 

When I just launch ./xsetup as regular user, I get stuck in the installer at the point where the installer wants to create the /opt/Xilinx folder:

 

2018.2 installer - needs sudo.png

 

I know a workaround is this, but I'm still wondering if it's actually better to install Vivado as sudo ...? UG973 gives no details/advise on this.

Hi @ronnywebers,

 

Root permissions is only required for the cable drivers installation. Otherwise you can proceed as Sudo with that work around using the opt/xilinx if that directory has been created.
