[Solved] The launcher doesn't run

Recommended Posts

Hi, I tried to run the game for the first time, but the launcher crashes with 2 windows after the splash screen. The messages are:

Quote

can't open file '' (error 2: No such file or directory)

Quote

Failed to update Java runtime. Check your internet connection and firewall settings, or try downloading the game again at https://wurmonline.com/

 

Characteristics:

- OS: Fedora 31

- GPU: NVidia with proprietary drivers

- JDK: OpenJDK 1.8

 

Can someone help me about this? Thanks by advance!

Not quite sure what happened there, sounds more like a permission/directory issue to me.

 

I'm playing on Linux Mint.

 

- downloaded tar.gz from https://www.wurmonline.com/wurm-online-downloads/

- have a wurm directory in my home folder

- have launcher in wurm folder (and a link to that on my desktop)

 

The tar.gz comes with it's own Oracle 64-bit java runtime that also installs in the home/wurm folder as linux64.

Thank you for your answer! It worked when I created a "wurm" folder in my home. That's quite a weird issue: why is this mandatory, and why is there not a clearer error message?

Anyway, the launcher works now, thanks again!

I think that this is/was a fairly distro related issue. I installed Wurm on several OpenSuse (42.2 to 15.1), and on Siduction (Debian Sid) without issues. There must have been a permission problem on your side as Eobersig wrote.
