Ubuntu/Kubuntu 14.04.5 LTS bug or setting problem?

3 posts in this topic

I wanted to create this thread before too much time passes. This bug or problem happened yesterday.

 

The wurm client says "Wurm Startup 3.99zh". The latest news is "Hotfix: 24/DEC/16".

 

Description of the bug:

I run the client and log in. Then I go to sleep at my bed and the client shuts down. Almost immediately after repeated instances of the client are created and my computer struggles to keep up under the load. Eventually it's essentially unresponsive, but the mouse will still move after a long delay. This only happens with one of the two desktop configuration files I use to run Wurm Online from my desktop.

 

I'm confident the buggy configuration file DID work before yesterday. I know I've clicked on both, but this is first time a bug like this happened.

 

(These files are *.desktop for anybody interested.)

 

This one I created after I installed hte oracle 8 java (on Nov 8). This is the one results in the above bug. Its contents follow:

In the application tab->command in file properties for the same configuration file above:

The other desktop configuration file works. It has existed since 2014. The contents and properties information are below:

The application tab->command file properties:

javaws "/home/jon/.cache/icedtea-web/cache/0/http/www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient.jnlp"

Can anyone spot anything? Note I uninstalled all java before I installed java 8 oracle, including icedtea. So if icetea is not installed then how is the above configuration file still working?

The second configuration does not tell what java engine to use, it just calls the default engine, so it will be run using Oracle Java 8 if that is the only installed java now.

The cache folder is mentioned to run the wurm client from there, it is not deleted when you uninstalled icedtea.

 

Is your Java is 64bit version?

You can check it with java -version from a terminal,the red part is the important one..

 

Output will be something like:

java version "1.8.0_111"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_111-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.111-b14, mixed mode)

 

In the spolier below is my working .desktop file for Wurm, the one that is created by Wurm itself when installed the client from the website.

If this is a problem with the OS not using Oracle's Java by default, then google update-alternatives. You will want to choose an alternative with it for javaws (and possibly java).
