Help using Linux version please
#1
Hi there, I'm not fluent in Linux but am running ubuntu 10.04. I have downloaded the 32 bit linux jar file and now I am stuck. Where do I find instructions on where to extract the files to and what prerequisites there might be?

Also once I know where to extract the files to, how do I launch the application?

Thanks in advance

Dan

Hi Dan,

you don't need to extract the files. The RouteConverterLinux.jar contains everything required to run RouteConverter.

Type

> java -jar RouteConverterLinux.jar

in the console

Thanks Christian, that's perfect. Works like a charm.

Just in case there are other dummies like me out there, I had to download Open JDK Java 6 runtime from the software center. Then I put the Jar file in /home/dan/Documents/Software (just because that's where I wanted to put it, no other reason). Then hit Ctrl-Alt-T and when the terminal opens enter
> java -jar /home/dan/Documents/Software/RouteConverterLinux.jar

And I just added a .png file you can use as an icon on your launcher if you create one

That command ( ¨java -jar RouteConverterLinux.jar¨) yields ¨Unable to access jarfile RouteCconverterLinux.jar¨.
Hopefully you have some other ideas because RCL looks like just what I need.
Thank you.

That means the RouteConverterLinux.jar is not in the current directory. Maybe it's a typo?

Yes, I had to add the path to RC, in my case: "java -jar /home/fred/Desktop/RouteConverterLinux.jar". Now it opens like a charm.
