Noob to Processing and Linux. I have Processing running on my netbook, which is running Ubuntu Karmic 9.10. I can't get Processing to start on my desktop which is running Ubuntu Lucid 10.04LTS 64bit. Installed Java JDK 1.6. What am I missing?
OpenGL library examples will not work because I haven't yet had free time to add support for 64-bit Linux (or Windows, or OS X for that matter). In the meantime you can swap the OpenGL libraries by hand, but the issue is being tracked here: http://code.google.com/p/processing/issues/detail?id=255
Larry Kyrala published a neat little script for unbundling the 64 bit opengl libraries. Which I've used to good effect running OPENGL examples etc on my AMD64Bit kubuntu box (I am using proprietary NVIDIA graphics driver direct from manufacturer rather than using ubuntu loader). All looks rather good so far (still same glitch with ruby-processing, you can only run opengl at fullscreen on linux).
hey guys, just want to share my own experience on this.
I'm running Ubuntu Linux 10.04LTS 64 bits on a macbook pro with NVidia geforce 320M graphics. So same problem when trying to use opengl sketches. The solution I found was to download the jogl-1.1.1a-linux-amd64.zip package from the old jogl website, and then replace the following library files:
in <processing bin folder>/libraries/opengl/library with the ones provided in the zip. This solved the problem, everything that is opengl related seems to work fine, including Cg shaders. I should also note that I'm using the processing pre-release 190.
