Although I can find no reference to supported unix desktops, apparently Vivado is not supported on KDE4??
A Vivado install on my shiny new Centos7/KDE4 has been generating various exceptions and errors. Most notably the license manager craps out with a java awt excpetion when I click the "obtain license" button.
Don't see much here in the forums with respect to KDE. I'm a bit surprised I can't find mention of KDE non support??
Perhaps this post will help any punters attempting to follow in my footsteps.
Guess I'll try Gnome.

Clearly lists the linux versions supported, page 14,
• Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 7.0 (64-bit)
• Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 6.5-6.6 (64-bit)
• Red Hat Enterprise Workstation 5.10 (64-bit)
• SUSE Linux Enterprise 11.3 and 12.0 (64-bit)
• Cent OS 6.6 and 7.0 (64-bit)
• Ubuntu Linux 14.04.2 LTS (64-bit)
• Vivado Lab Edition is the only Xilinx toolset that supports the Red Hat Enterprise
Workstation 6.5-6.6, 32-bit Operating Systems. Lab Edition also supports the 64-bit

Yes, I see the operating systems supported. The windowing system rides on top of the OS and the Vivado GUI rides on top of that.
I'm not reporting that Vivado doesn't work on Centos7. I'm reporting it doesn't work well with KDE4 on Centos7.

I'm not a KDE expert.
When I installed KDE, I don't think I specified a version. I assumed I got the latest production version.
Poking around the KDE sites a bit, KDE5 appears to be bleeding edge.
I'm running KDE SC 4.14.8 which was released August 2014. Seems rather early to declare 4.14.8 obsolete.

I am using the Vivado with the CentOS7 and KDE4.
I have removed all Qt librarries which were installed by Vivado and I am using the ones from the OS.
For ex.: the command
find /opt/Xilinx/Vivado -name "*Qt*"
Shows me that I have Qt libs in
So, I have made the following:
cd /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2015.4/lib/lnx64.o/ mkdir bk mv libQt* bk
I have not touched the libs in the /opt/Xilinx/Vivado/2015.4/ids_lite/ISE/lib/lin64/.
You may want to do the same in the /opt/Xilinx/DocNav...
