After a successful installation of the Vitis Software, a confirmation message is displayed, with a prompt to run the script.

  1. Locate the script at: <install_dir>Vitis/<release>/scripts/, where <install_dir> is the location of your installation, and <release> is the installation version.
    Note: This script is not required on Windows.
  2. Run the script using sudo privileges as follows:
    sudo ./

    The command installs a number of necessary package for the Vitis tools based on the OS of your system.

Important: Pay attention to any messages returned by the script. You might need to install any missing packages manually. For example, if installation of Linux does not include the zip command-line utility, you need to manually install it. The utility is required by some of the Vitis tools and the script does not install it for you.
