Re: Help needed setting up PCgen on a linux machine
- Yeah, I've moved the files to about four different locations trying to
get everything working, and that just happened to be the last stop.
Usually I install these things under /home/Games/<Game Directory>.
Just for laughs, though, I moved the files back to my home directory
to see what kind of damage I could do, and when I started up the
program all of my locations had already been updated to the correct
As far as typing errors, I just fat-fingered the first line when I
typed it by hand into the response earlier, and cut and paste made
sure that the error was equal-opportunity.
Anyway, to recap, I'm still not able to load anything useful into the
sources dialog and I'm still getting an error while launching that
says that I'm missing jeb-2.3.1.jar from my /lib subdirectory (even
though it's in there). I'm running ONLY Sun's Java (so far as I can
tell from synaptic), and my locations are pointing to the right place.
Any other possibilities?

/home/jim/pcgen5140RC2 and I have a /home/jim/.pcgen directory that
pcgen uses to store whatever it stores there. I should also mention I
had trouble with pcgen if I set the look and feel options to anything
other than Java. Did you copy paste all of your directory locations?
You have a space between the / and the .pcgen that shouldn't be there
in each one, also a space between the pcgen5121 and the trailing /
that shouldn't be there. Linux is extremely unforgiving of typos.
