[Resolved] Java security preventing the game from launching

Recommended Posts

I just installed Linux Mint 19 and Oracle Java 8 on my laptop.  Every time I try to launch the game I keep getting a window that tells me Java blocked it from doing its thing even though I have http://wurmonline.com on the exception list.  I still have the same problem when I disable Java security.  Can some one help a brother out?  I sort of a new Linux user and all this extra mucking around to get anything to work is really frustrating.

Is that a typo?

I strongly recommend to not use

sudo

to start java webstart. Java webstart is downloading the application (may also contain native code) and executes it.

Be careful with using root permissions.

I got it working.  Apparently I was using the wrong Java console.

 

I want to clarify as I just had the same issue. With a fresh install of Linux Ubuntu / Mint, OpenJDK11 is installed and set to the default.  You will need to first install Java 8, then set Java 8 to be the default.

 

Install Java 8:

Set default version & remove old: (You really only have to go as far as changing the default )
