I'm trying to run the Quartus Prime Lite software, however no GUI shows when I try to run it after installing. I read that its possibly because my window manager (i3) is returning a non-standard window name and Quartus can't understand it.

This question shows setting the WM name to fix a similar issue: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/14486147/java-web-start-application-shows-empty-window-on-xmonad

How can I make i3 report a different window manager name to Quartus?


You could change window manager name with wmname tool, eg:

$ wmname LG3D

  • Perfect. Unfortunately it didn't fix the Quartus problem but it did indeed rename the window manager. – CS Student May 31 '17 at 17:46
