-In order to be able to start the binaries from the commandline,​ the path for the binaries has to be in the PATH environment variableFor that you have to modify the .profile file in your home directory. Append the following snippet to the .profile file:+and copy the library ​to the 18.directory

-To see the changes in the PATH variable, you have to logout and login againAfter that you can already start modelsim ​and quartus (see below). To check the setting of the PATH variable do:+Change /​opt/​altera/​18.1/​modelsim_ase/​vco ​ file and find the location:
