Re: quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

But why does Maptool care if my ~/bin is lowercase or not? I've run a lot of binaries from ~/bin without having this issue before.

Re: quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

I just figured out why sometimes I can get Maptools to run from an extracted deb and other times it fails. It's a weird bug. If I run MapTool from '/home/$USER/Bin/MapTool' it runs but '/home/$USER/bin/MapTool' it fails with this error. Error: could not find libjava.so Error: Could not find Java SE ...

Re: quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

Thank you for sharing the workaround! If you could post the full error stack, it could help us figure out what is wrong and fix the issue in a new version. I would love to but now I can't reproduce the problem. I even tried a fresh Linux install but it worked this time without copying the fonts to ...

Re: quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

Also in the interest of helping anyone who stumbles upon this... I tried this method of installation, but got a core dump somewhere in the font initialisation process -- the stacktrace ended at sun.font.FontConfigManager.getFontConfig at least. I had various font packages installed, but none of the...

Re: quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

This method seems to no longer work. Trying to run the new Maptools 1.7.0 on Fedora 32 fails with the error. [[email protected] MapTool]$ ./MapTool Error: could not find libjava.so Error: Could not find Java SE Runtime Environment. I don't know why as it seems to bundle the same dependencies as before....

Re: MapTool 1.5.3 on Arch Linux

It's possible to extract MapTools with all the dependencies included (java, JavaFX, etc) from the official .deb using an archive manager like Ark. The deb structure is maptool.deb/data.tar.xz/opt/MapTool/ . Simply extract that folder and run it. edit: Today I tried to run it on a new Linux install (...

quick fix for running on Linux when jar doesn't work

I want to leave this here for anyone who comes after me having trouble getting MapTools to run on Linux. The jar proved impossible for me to get running no matter what version of java I used even with JavaFX. There is a dirty fix though. Just extract the Maptool folder from the official deb using yo...
