[SOLVED] launching from a jnlp file, on x32 linux

Post by ddyer »

Openwebstart doesn't quite work in this configuration, installed on an x86 linux machine. The same jnlp
launches fine on windows and mac.

In this case, the jnlp was downloaded to the user Downloads folder. Clicking to launch just seems to fizzle,
but launching from a shell shows this:

Re: launching from a jnlp file, on x32 linux

Post by Stephan Classen »

can you please try and pass the full path to the jnlp on the command line.

Something similar to

javaws /user/home/dyer/Downloads/boardspace7.jnlp

I can confirm the same behavior on a x64 linux.

This is sub optimal. We will have a look at this
