Default Re: Hedghog standards converter

Hi SM,
Typing "gksudo <quartus_pgmw>" in terminal, didn't do anything as it stood. However, after several more hours of googling 'how to do things in Linux' and much experimentation, progress has been made.

typing "cd altera/13.0sp1/qprogrammer/bin and then gksudo ./quartus_pgmw"

opens the programmer with (as far as I can tell) admin rights.

Now when I try to program, I get different errors!

Under 'add hardware', there are two options for the blaster.

1) usb blaster port 4-1
2) Byteblaster port /dev/par

Using No 1, the error is ' device chain in chain description file does not match physical device chain. Expected 2 devices but only found 1.'

Using No2, the error is ' Jtag server can't access selected programming hardware'.

I'm sure No 1 is the correct option but I might have set up something else incorrectly in the programmer.

Does the screen shot below look correct?

Many thanks
