It "works", until you run into weird bugs with windows not being the right size, or present mode not working. It's the #1 reason for (unfixable) bug reports on Linux, so I added a warning on startup for people who aren't using the Sun JVM.
Just to report back: I'm currently running processing using eclipse and openjdk and it appears to be running ok - some crashes but that is likely to be down to the netbook I'm testing it on. Will try it on a more reliable machine soonish.
I'm trying to get Processing to work on an ARM embedded system (NVIDIA Tegra platform). I can install OpenJDK in the version of Ubuntu that has been ported to ARM, but I can't seem to get the Sun Java 6 plugin to work (the deb package won't install). With IcedTea6, I get the following error:
java.lang.RuntimeException: You need to use "Import Library" to add processing.core.PGraphicsJava2D to your sketch. at processing.core.PApplet.makeGraphics(Unknown Source) at processing.core.PApplet.init(Unknown Source) at sun.applet.AppletPanel.run(AppletPanel.java:436) at java.lang.Thread.run(Thread.java:636)
If I try to install the sun-java6-plugin package, I get:
ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:/etc/apt$ sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package sun-java6-plugin is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package sun-java6-plugin has no installation candidate ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:/etc/apt$
I'm not very good at Java. I just want my exported processing animation to play on the ARM platform, so i can demonstrate that what I'm working on can run on a mobile phone. OpenJDK is installed, but doesn't work; and I can't figure out how install the Sun version. Can anyone help me?
Thanks so much in advance!
