The simulation is launched using this command: In the SST window select s, and in the signals window select s[3: Don’t forget to write the save file after you’ve inserted all your signals in the waveform. The Sourceforge site ghdl-updates is the location for on going ghdl development activity by the author of ghdl, Tristan Gingold. After that I double click on that file and gtkwave opens. So maybe there was an issue with how the vhdl was compiled. I did get a message saying that the object files were a newer format or something along those lines.

Perhaps this may be useful to future readers.

Elaborating the use of ghdl and gtkwave with an example. What happened is that I now have a work-obj Ask and you shall receive, although I didn’t type in the code from the example I found and it’s a pain to extract from the PDF.

However, I still have problems. I wouldn’t claim it’s a good manuaal, but you’re getting what you paid for here. The elaborated model only exists in memory at run time and the -e elaborate command is superfluous other than an entry in the working library.

In addition to joining the ghdl discussion list or perusing it’s archives you can file bug reports on the ghdl-updates Tickets page, where you ghel both open and closed issues. I usually use Modelsim on windows or fedora FEL. Let me tell you what I am doing: In my case, unlike in Ubuntu, I had to analyze code.


See the gtkwave manual. Russell Uhl Hey, thanks!

The configuration file has to be saved after setting up your wave form display in gtkwave before it exists. The automatic invocation of the gtkwave app by clicking on files is one. There’s a recent answer showing a demonstration with a Toggle Flip Flop, showing an error in the original VHDL code, and three manuak fixes.

When I compiled them separately I got error messages. Then I run ghdl -e myfilewhich does nothing. First, you have to compile the file; this is called analysis of a design file in VHDL terms.

It’s possible with binary releases of ghdl and gtkwave to separate user from developer.
