I recently installed the ic6.1.3 on a centos 64 bit machine and I have noticed that whenever I create a schematic and run ADE, the menu of the schematic editor disappears and it is not redrawn even when I exit the ADE. I really have to reopen the schematic in a new tab just to have the menu.
Is there a way to overcome this behavior?
Moreover when I open the schematic editor I get the following error on the CIW:
"*Error* eval: unbound variable - not_a_menuUT"
What is the meaning of it?
Thanks in advance,
The name "not_a_menuUT" does not appear in any of our problem databases so I surmise that this is coming from some local customization of your Cadence tools. Also, given the description, it sounds as though there is a trigger set up so that when ADE is started, a menu is added to the schematic through a user post install trigger. Can you please check for any .cdsinit file or libInit.il file (in a library) that might be performing such customization, it may help to figure out what is happening. Most likely you would find the "not_a_menuUT" string in one such file.

Thanks for the immediate advice. I run virtuoso from a clean directory looking up only the oa libraries shiped whith the IC6.1 packet (i.e analog ...). The menu was OK and the error was not issued. I will try to figure out what is going on with my libraries. I have converted all of them with the conversion tool (even the one from umc) but the initialization files are refering to the previous ver of IC.

I have another problem
I installed IC6.1 in UBUNTU 9.10
when I launched virtuoso, there will be error message
*ERROR* (DB-320001): Unable to get the Cadence(R) Design Framework II license feature of "111".
I put my licence files on the remote server , butcadence search it in local share folder
any one know how to solve this problem
Thanks in advance

Probably best to start a new thread for each new topic.
Do you have licensing set up so that CDS_LIC_FILE is in the "port@host" format? It sounds like you may have licenses being found from within the "share" installation directory - while this method works, I would recommend explicitly setting the CDS_LIC_FILE variable using the "port@host" format, e.g. "5280@mylicserver". Check that licensing is running from the Unix command line, using "lmstat ..." for example (with appropriate arguments). Also, in IC61x, once you have licensing running, there is a utility called perf_test that can help investigate performance and latency issues.
Finally, I will say that Ubuntu is not an officially supported flavour of Linux to be running Cadence IC tools on. The distributions that are supported by R&D are RedHat and SuSE. However, I hear that some folks are suing CentOS with varying levels of success, but I have not heard much about Ubuntu.
I lost the complete menu like Add tab etc in schematic editor. How to recover it?
thanx in advance
