XPS EDK Simulator not launching



I tried to simulate my model and everything passes (generating hdl files).

The problem is it doesn't start the Simulator, I get the following:



Compiling architecture structure of entity system_poc
Time Resolution for simulation is 100fs.
Compiled 381 VHDL Units
Compiled 249 Verilog Units
Built simulation executable isim_system_poc
Fuse Memory Usage: 415784 KB
Fuse CPU Usage: 36530 ms
GCC CPU Usage: 330 ms
cd simulation/behavioral ; \
	xterm -e ./isim_system_poc -gui -tclbatch system_poc_setup.tcl &

Then nothing happens and if I type xterm into my terminal it says "command not found"


Did I miss something?


Thanks in advance!

Hi @hmeier88,


If you are getting a command not found when you try and run xterm then it looks like you have an environment configuration error.


"xterm" is the standard terminal emulator for the X Window System. A user can have many different invocations of xterm running at once on the same display, each of which provides independent input/output for the process running in it (normally the process is a Unix shell).


You will need to provide the xterm application for your system.


Best Regards
