Installing on Linux¶
This document explains how to install Visual System Integrator on Ubuntu Linux Host. The instructions might also work for other linux variants but we have only tested these instructions on Ubuntu Desktop 14.04 and 16.04.
Use the bash script to download and install Visual System Integrator automatically.
Manually follow steps to extract and install Visual System Integrator.
Install using the script¶
Download the installation file from Here (Make sure to choose the major version that corresponds to the Vivado version that is installed on the host)2
Extract the compressed file in a directory of your choice (example: /opt/Systemview/VSI).
set environment variable
VSI_INSTALLwhich should point to the directory where you extracted the file
export VSI_INSTALL=/opt/Systemview/VSI(to make the change permanent, add this line to your ~/.bashrc)
Append $VSI_INSTALL/host/linux_x86_64/bin to your $PATH to be able to launch VSI from commandline
export PATH=$PATH:$VSI_INSTALL/host/linux.x86_64/bin(to make the change permanent, add this line to your ~/.bashrc)
Optional: if you have already received your license, copy it to $VSI_INSTALL directory.
Open a terminal and issue the command
vsi. If the installation was successful then you should see text similar to this:
