I can compile digital components and download them to the boards DE2 and DE2-115 I got. I do it from Windows 7 but I want to enable this on ubuntu while the files from Altera are for Red Hat Linux. I've seen in the Altera forum that there're success installing it on 64-bit Ubuntu which I want to try. Should I try or wait for an official version? Will there be an official version for Ubuntu and not only Red Hat?
I've successfully installed Quartus II on Ubuntu. I followed mainly those instructions:
IIRC I had to modify somethings, I think it was the udev-Rules and the symlink from /bin/sh (defaults to /bin/dash in Ubuntu/Debian but Quartus II expects it to be /bin/bash).
