Jalview.jnlp on ubuntu

Hi,

I want to use Jalview on Ubuntu 16.04. I’m trying to open jalview.jnlp downloaded via firefox, but nothing happens when I click on the file. How I can launch the jalview.jnlp?
I’ve used jalview.jnlp before on older version of ubuntu and could open the program just by a double click.

Thanks for any help!

Ganesh

Hi Ganesh,

Sorry to hear you are having problems.

If you open a command line prompt in the download folder and type

javawas [filename].jnlp

do you see any error message?

Also, what does

java -version

report?

Thanks,

Mungo

Hi Mungo,

Thanks for your reply.
I managed to the jalview.jnlp after installing the package called 'icedtea-netx’.

Java - version is below.

openjdk version “1.8.0_92”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 8.15.0.1-linux64) (build 1.8.0_92-b15)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu 8.15.0.1-linux64) (build 25.92-b15, mixed mode)

Thanks, Ganesh

Hi Ganesh,

Glad to hear that is resolved for you.

And for any other readers, yes that was a typo in my last post, should have read

javaws jalview.jnlp

not javawas

Hi Ganesh - these errors suggest you had no active net connection, so
javaws couldn't download Jalview's jars. javaws needs to launch Jalview
once before it can be locally cached (and launched without network
afterwards).

Can you open http://www.jalview.org/builds/release/webstart in your
browser ? if so, then we'll need to do some more digging.

Jim.

Hi Mungo,

I’ve not been able to run jalview.jnlp on ubuntu 16.04 LTS

It gives following error when I tried to launch app - javaws
jalview.jnlp (it was working before after installing package

Could you please have a look and let me know how I can run the jalview
again.

Thanks, Ganesh

Hi Jim,

Thanks for a reply.

I could open the URL in browser - contains .jar files, example foldor etc. Please let me know if there is anything else that you want me to run or send.

Subject: Re: Re: [Jalview-discuss] Jalview.jnlp on ubuntu

Hi Ganesh - these errors suggest you had no active net connection, so
javaws couldn't download Jalview's jars. javaws needs to launch Jalview
once before it can be locally cached (and launched without network
afterwards).

Can you open http://www.jalview.org/builds/release/webstart in your
browser ? if so, then we'll need to do some more digging.

Jim.

Hi Mungo,

I’ve not been able to run jalview.jnlp on ubuntu 16.04 LTS

Java version: openjdk version "1.8.0_92"

It gives following error when I tried to launch app - javaws
jalview.jnlp (it was working before after installing package
called 'icedtea-netx’)

Could you please have a look and let me know how I can run the jalview
again.

Thanks, Ganesh

Hi Ganesh,

Glad to hear that is resolved for you.

And for any other readers, yes that was a typo in my last post, should
have read

javaws jalview.jnlp

Hi Mungo,

Thanks for your reply.
I managed to the jalview.jnlp after installing the package called
'icedtea-netx’.

Java - version is below.

openjdk version "1.8.0_92"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (Zulu 8.15.0.1-linux64) (build 1.8.0_92-b15)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (Zulu 8.15.0.1-linux64) (build 25.92-b15,
mixed mode)

Thanks, Ganesh

Hi Ganesh,

Sorry to hear you are having problems.
If you open a command line prompt in the download folder and type

javawas [filename].jnlp

do you see any error message?

Also, what does
  java -version
report?

Thanks,

Hi,

I want to use Jalview on Ubuntu 16.04. I'm trying to open
jalview.jnlp downloaded via firefox, but nothing happens when I click
on the file. How I can launch the jalview.jnlp?
I've used jalview.jnlp before on older version of ubuntu and could
open the program just by a double click.

Thanks for any help!

Hi Ganesh.

I could open the URL in browser - contains .jar files, example foldor etc. Please let me know if there is anything else that you want me to run or send.

A vanilla openjdk install on Ubuntu 16.04 can launch Jalview fine,
although we always recommend using the oracle package if you can.

I presume you are running javaws from a terminal command like:
javaws http://www.jalview.org/builds/release/webstart/jalview.jnlp

You'll need to send us details of exactly which java packages you have
installed (I recommend the webupd8 ppa), and if the above command is the
one you are using (or it also fails), then send us output with the
-verbose option:

#first clear the webstart cache
javaws -clearcache

#launch with verbose output on javaws
javaws -verbose http://www.jalview.org/builds/release/webstart/jalview.jnlp

You could also try installing packages via webupd8:

    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get -y install oracle-java8-installer
    sudo apt-get -y install oracle-java8-set-default

Let us know how you get on,
Jim.

Hi Jim,

Thanks. Jalview (version 2.10.1, 14 dec 2016) is working after clearing the webstart cache. I usually use jalview_2G.jnlp file to run the program.

I’ve also installed the packages you recommended, and the jalview is running fine without a package called icedtea-netx that I had installed before to be able to run the program on linux.

Thanks, Ganesh
