I’m using the window manager
bspwm (on Arch Linux), and the jME SDK’s installer is not working right:
The GUI is completely white, but is functioning, since I can click near the bottom-left corner to trigger the cancel warning:
I tried changing size, turn on/off fullscreen and change the window from workspaces, but it just won’t work.
Is there any way to install the SDK through CLI or with a
-silent option? Or, in case not, can someone post screenshots of a working GUI so I can see where should I click?
The best way is to use the zip file which is platform independent (you only have to execute the correct file in bin/).
What you do miss is the bundled jdk and blender, but both are no show stoppers.
You can also try --help or something, maybe the installer has a cli. But I’m not sure.
Can you maybe report this Issue on the Github Issues?
Do other Java AWT/Swing applications behave like that?
Because the next question is if the SDK will run then.
Did you maybe set a custom look and feel?
Edit: I just checked - Tiling Window Managers will always be problematic for UI-heavy programs.
Thanks for the answer. Through the
--help command I found out there is a
--silent command. However, it simply extracts the contents of the
.sh file, so no big help…
I did however discover an arch wiki page dedicated for Java problems with bspwm. I’ll see if it helps me, otherwise I’ll just download the
.zip file as you said.
ATM I don’t have any apps installed that use Swing, but I have a couple of Java/jME projects that rely on it. I’ll try compilling them and see how the look like.
EDIT: By appending
export _JAVA_AWT_WM_NONREPARENTING=1 to
/etc/profile.d/jre.sh, the problem was solved (as stated on the link above). But nevertheless, thank you!
