On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, the installation is normally no problem. But sadly, normally there is a small drawback. But it can be fixed very simple.
So if your desktop is looking like this after the WebStart installation
and you click on this strange icon (with a name similar like "jws_app_shortcut_1321106907286.desktop"), the following message appears:
There are now two possibilities: You start the CmME each time by clicking on the downloaded startCm2.jnlp file. You will find this for example in the Download section of your browser.
But there is a better solution, just do the following:
Now you do just the following. Make a right click on this strange icon and choose Properties. Now proceed to the tab Permissions.
There you will find a check box entitled "Allow executing files as program".
Click on Close and you are finished. Your desktop should look like this now:
This icon should be executable now.
On Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, we are working with Eclipse to run CmME from source.
If you have Java 6 or 7 installed on your system together with Eclipse (also older version of Eclipse run with CmME), there is normally only one small problem: Java3D.
And this problem is fixed very fast:
Goto the "Synaptic Package Manager". Search for:
It must be version 1.5.X, but version 1.5.2 is recommended.
After it is installed, go to Eclipse. Right click on the Cm2_2 project in your Package window and select properties. Goto the Java Build Path and the tab "Libraries". Edit now the "native library location" of your JRE System Library and enter
Just start now the Start,java file as you are used to. For additional settings, please refer to the README.txt in the project folder.
