ISE - How can I avoid running "source settings.(c)sh" every time I want to launch ISE in Linux?


On Linux or Solaris, when I want to launch ISE, I have to change my working directory and run "source settings.(c)sh".

How can I avoid doing this each time?


The following instructions assume that the ISE installation path is "/opt/xilinx": 
  • If using bash, append "source /opt/xilinx/settings.sh" to .bashrc in your home directory.
  • If using csh, append "source /opt/xilinx/settings.csh" to .cshrc in your home directory.
