I have fairly standard Ubuntu 12.04 and I would like to use RapidMiner. There are neither official packages for RapidMiner nor unofficial PPAs.

When I download it from the official website and ran java -jar lib/rapidminer.jar I get the following log:

And the splash screen freezes at the stage Loading icons while using 100% of CPU.

How to make RapidMiner to run on Ubuntu?

Of course, I solved the problem just after posting the question :/ RapidMiner pops up a dialog window which the user has to confirm before she can continue. However, the dialog window is shown on another desktop :/

Solution is to check other desktops because there might be a dialog, like on the following screenshot:
