Java on Xubuntu 18.04.2

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I've installed Xubuntu 18.04.2 on my new computer but can't manage to find a java both compatible with Linux AND Wurm Online.

I've tried many things but the farthest i've manage to get is the very beginning of the launching of WO. I do not even manage to get the window to clic on "Play".

I'm stucked and stop trying because i believe i'll end up scrapping my PC at this rythm.

 

Anyone can help me find a solution? and explain it step by step, details, etc

 

Thank you very much in advance,

Illusion

I've read that WO doesn't like the jdk version but even with the jre which i've tried (and desinstalled, don't remember which version), didn't manage to make it work out.

I've tried to install jre:

However I've got this message when i try to launch WO:

L’exécution du processus fils « javaws » a échoué (Aucun fichier ou dossier de ce type)

 

Translation => Javaws failed because can't find it.

Maybe it's in the wrong place? I need to move my files?

 

dont use openjdk. install oracle jdk. period.

 

openjdk, among other incompatibilities, doesn't include javaws.

Make sure that it was the 64 bit version: jre-8u211-linux-x64.tar.gz

 

Copy all the files to under jre8_211 to /usr/java/jre1.8.0_211  and make a symlink /usr/java/latest like this:

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 22. Nov 2018  /usr/java/latest -> /usr/java/jre1.8.0_211

 

Create an icon on desktop for Wurm : Name  "Wurm Online [Stable]" Comment "Wurm Online Client" Command "/usr/java/jre1.8.0_211/bin/javaws -localfile -J-Djnlp.application.href=http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient.jnlp"

 

Edit: On my other linux box, the command is simply : /usr/java/latest/bin/javaws  "http://www.wurmonline.com/client/wurmclient.jnlp"

 

Further on, you may consider the installation of the jre-8u211-linux-x64.rpm instead of the .tar.gz (it puts all stuff to /usr/java and you have not to care, also takes care of newer versions) :

Follow these instructions to be able to handle RPM packages: https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/ubuntu/install-an-rpm-package-on-ubuntu-linux/
