Re: Help needed setting up PCgen on a linux machine
- Going into synaptic through the command line using sudo, I found the
following packages that pertain to openjdk:
None of them are installed on my system (should I be looking for
I also went in and took a look at my locations in the program.
Everything still seems to be in order there, but just to make sure
that another set of eyes can't catch my error, here's what I've got:
According to the program, my locations are as follows:
PCGen Character Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/characters
PCGen Portraits Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121
PCGen Data Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/data
PCGen Custom Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/customsources
PCGen Vendor Data Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/vendordata
PCGen Docs Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/docs
PCGen System Directory: /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/system
PCGen Output Sheets Directory:
Then I run a quick ls of /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/data, for
instance, and get:
permissioned my_dataset LoadOnStart.pcc d20ogl customsources alpha
...and if I look in the /home/grillfocks/.pcgen/pcgen5121/data/d20ogl
folder, as an example, I get this:
alderacentertainmentgroup gallantryproductions silvenpublishing
aleapublishinggroup goodmangames silverthornegames
avalanchepress lionsdenpress srd
bastionpress malhavocpress srd35
battlefieldpress mongoosepublishing stcooleypublishing
behemoth3 msrd swordandsorcerystudios
doghouserules necromancergames swordsedgepublishing
If I'm being silly here and missing the obvious, which has happened
before with some frequency, then please let me know. Otherwise, it
looks to me like both the openjdk and locations solutions aren't
working for me.
Again, you're appreciated greatly, as is all your help.

pull up the packages with that in the name. It will show you if they

Java is not on your system then I would say that you don't have your
locations set properly within PCGen.
- OpenJDK is installed by default in Ubuntu Hardy Heron (8.04-LTS).
Since you've installed Sun's Java, you can remove open-java. The
