Install Lattice iCEcube2 on Linux

Do you have troubles installing iCEcube2 on your Linux computer? Lattice is providing a Linux installation for iCEcube2 here .

Following the installation instruction I ran into following issue:

$ unzip
  inflating: iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012
$ chmod +x iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012
$ ./iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012
bash: ./iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012: cannot execute: required file not found

iCEcube2 is a 32 bit executable and very probably you're running a 64 bit Linux. The solution? Install the 32 bit dependencies.

Fedora link symbol

To get iCEcube2 installed on Fedora (tested on Fedora 38):

eth0 device link symbol

The license manager is searching for a eth0 device to compare the MAC address. To achive this, we have to tell the linux kernel while booting.

Add net.ifnames=0 to GRUB_CMLINE_LINUX in the file /etc/default/grub:

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="$(sed 's, release .*$,,g' /etc/system-release)"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="rd.luks.uuid=luks-ff974974-8e99-4833-ab19-af4bd2b0a201 rhgb quiet net.ifnames=0"

Now we need to re-build the grub bootloader:

$ grub2-mkconfig -o /boot/grub2/grub.cfg

Now we are ready to reboot.

Install link symbol

Install iCEcube2 by starting the installer:

$ ./iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012

Extend library path link symbol

I was still unable to start iCEcube2 and after digging a while, here is the solution. Adding /usr/lib/ to the library path helped. Open the config.xml path in the iCEcube2 installation path and add the path:

 <ProductId organizationName="Lattice" organizationDomain="">iCEcube 2008.6</ProductId>
  <LM_LICENSE_FILE append="0" userInput="LM_LICENSE_FILE">/home/guenther/license.dat</LM_LICENSE_FILE>
  <SBT_DIR append="0">$(RootPath)/sbt_backend</SBT_DIR>

Starting iCEcube2 link symbol

Now starting should work as expected.


Ubuntu link symbol

You find a detailed installation guide on .

General advice cannot execute: required file not found link symbol

This message is not really helpful. Use file do see if the executable is a 32-bit file (or maybe even another processor architecture).

$ file iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012
iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked, interpreter /lib/, for GNU/Linux 2.2.5, not stripped

The first thing missing here is glibc for the required architecture. See the following chapters how to install.

$ sudo dnf install glibc.i686  # or whatever is needed to get glibc for the required architecture onto your system

After installing glibc, you get more information.

$ ./iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012
./iCEcube2setup_Dec_10_2020_2012: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Now we have at least a clue about what is missing...
