I need to use a software which already works fine in a 32 bit Ubuntu 10.10 virtual machine, with my 64 bit Ubuntu 13.10. I found all the executable files and copy/pasted them into the same directory (/usr/local//), I used the
chmod command to make them executable, and as I upgraded my Ubuntu from 13.04 to 13.10 I was able to install the ia32:libs package adding the raring depository in synaptic.
Some of the features (some of the executables) work but the main graphic interface which is run with java does not. In the terminal, when running the command I get the following message, and nothing else happens whereas the graphic window should appear as it does in the virtual machine.
Exception in thread "main" java.awt.HeadlessException at java.awt.GraphicsEnvironment.checkHeadless(GraphicsEnvironment.java:207) at java.awt.Window.<init>(Window.java:535) at java.awt.Frame.<init>(Frame.java:420) at java.awt.Frame.<init>(Frame.java:385) at javax.swing.JFrame.<init>(JFrame.java:174) at xedge.ui.Xedge.<init>(Xedge.java:332) at xedge.ui.Xedge.main(Xedge.java:7785)
What should I do in order to get the graphic window and the software to work? It seems that I need another version of java but how can I install that properly?
