Edit: I guess I have it installed, but websites still say, I require java.
Tested in Midori and firefox, all plugins enabled. Normaly this works on the PC but it seems not on the Pandora.
This is the Java runtime, not a browser plugin, unfortunately. I couldn't get the plugin to compile as easily as the base runtime.


I'll have a look into any changes that happened with HF6

This doesn't work anymore since HF6. It says an unrecoverable error happened, and I should reinstall, which I did several times.
pnd_run.sh has changed in HF6. It seems to override the $HOME variable before executing the application. The original home directory should be set in $REAL_HOME. I'm not sure, but this may be the cause of this application failing to run properly.
Can I fix this?

Oh, I had no Idea since when I installed Java Runtime on PC, suddenly all of my browsers had Java Support, I thought this was automatic. ^^" But I guess on the Pandora, things are not that easy.

If that is indeed the cause, which needs to be verified first, then the PND needs to be fixed. Exactly what is failing and what kind of errors are you getting?
The error I get is this:



Code:
There seems to be an unrecoverable error. Please rerun the install program.


Here is the .out file from the java program I try to run. They're all the same:

It's still working for me after I updated to HF6 via the .pnd, does the script only change when doing a full flash?

I've gone and updated the java.pnd, uploading it to the repo all nice and official like. Eventually... it's still uploading... slowly.


Fixes the install so you can use it again after a fresh install. Made sure it was backwards compatible with older hotfixes too.


New is a "Run JAR file" under Accessories menu that will pop up a file select dialog allowing you to choose a .JAR file to run (duh).


I've made that "Run JAR file" the first application in the PND, and designed it to also accept a filename argument instead of file selection, so in theory the PND can be associated with .JAR files and it'll "just work", but it might be easier to run the javainstall and then associate .jar files with /usr/bin/java. I'd have done it in the install itself, but I can't figure out how to automatically change mime types and associations. I barely remember figuring out how to do it manually once.


Anywho, suggestions welcome.

There is a problem with PNDs that start java in there startscript. I just stumbled over this when trying nightvision.pnd:


- the pnd is run


- with HF6 the HOME-variable is changed


- the pnd-startscript is run which calls "java -jar <java-program-name>"


- /usr/bin/java is executed which looks for ~/.javapnd


However ~.javapnd is not found as the HOME-variable is set to the appdata-directory of the pnd.


Solution: Do not search for "~/.javapnd", but for "/home/$(cat /tmp/currentuser)/.javapnd" or use a different location (like /etc/javapnd) or a different mechanism (like 'egrep -oh "\"/.*//java.pnd\"" /usr/share/applications/* | uniq' , maybe not bulletproof, but on the other hand finds the pnd even if the location has changed)


Also i noticed a typo in /usr/bin/java: " Please rerun the install pro(g)ram."

Oh, I see. It worked in testing as I was just running java on the command line. Hadn't considered PNDs that use it might already have changed the variable.


It's an even easier fix than you propose: just use $REAL_HOME which is set by run_pnd.


I'm working on something right now but will have a new PND up tonight.

About mime-configuration. I am not very experienced in this topic, but i fiddled around with this topic during the last hours and found a way that seems to work. I want to stress that i am not sure if this is a recommended, clean way of doing this.


I tried what happens to mp3-files when i double-click them and noticed that gnome-mplayer launches. After some searching i found out that this is because in the file /usr/share/applications/gnome-mplayer.desktop some mime-filetypes are assigned. So i thought that the solution would be to create an own desktop-file for java that is not visible in the start-menu but assigns the proper mime-handling. I created the following file as root:


/usr/share/applications/jar-mime.desktop:



Code:
[Desktop Entry]

Version=1.0

Name=Jar-Mime-Dummie

Comment=File for handling Mime-Configuration

Exec=/usr/bin/java -jar %f

NoDisplay=true

StartupNotify=true

Terminal=false

Type=Application

MimeType=application/x-java-archive;application/x-jar;

And it seems to work nicely. Double-clicking a ".jar"-file within Thunar makes it start when this file exists. "NoDisplay=true" prevents a menu-entry from being created. So it should work to pack your pnd with such a desktop-file and copy it over to /usr/share/applications/ on installation.

I'm uploading the new PND with the fixed HOME stuff for now and will look into the mime configuration tomorrow. Thanks for that. I was in the middle of uploading when the server went all broken else I'd probably have seen your post and taken the time to fix it earlier.


I spent most of today trying to get the icedtea-web Mozilla plugin to compile. I'm having difficulty getting XULRunner library to compile for the Pandora. I don't think it's ever been done, at least I can't find any indication that it has been.

I am new to the Pandora (just received mine with the mail); I have java.pnd on an SD card (installing from the GUI gives a Permission Denied error); running pnd_run always starts the Java Uninstall. Is there are 'manual' of how I can use this?


Thanks


Edit: ok, decided to tinker around a bit:


mount -o loop java.pnd /mnt/java


works


/mnt/java


./instjava.sh


too


umount /mnt/java


After that Java works, but it always says, when running:


auplink:plink.c:223: AUFS_CTL_PLINK_MAINT: Inappropriate ioctl for device


rmdir: failed to remove '/mnt/utmp/java': Device or resource busy


What is that? Is that because of my weird way of installing or ?

Ah, Any way to prevent them, is it because of the loop mount of a PND? So maybe if I unpack and set everything it won't do that?

I've made an update to the pnd: http://rebirthofxeen.com/files/pandora/java.pnd


Now first thing the install asks is if you'd like to use the Oracle Java or the Open Java. Open JDK is simple to use, no additional work required. Getting the Oracle JDK installed is... a little trickier. Due to licensing restrictions I can't just include it, the user needs to download it themselves.


Go to http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html and choose "Previous Releases". Unless they've made an update to the ARM release since I posted this, it is only available from Java Release 7 update 6 (if you just go straight for latest, that is update 7 (or later, depending on when this is read) and may not have an ARM version)


So you get to the download page, find the 7u6 Linux ARM release, download it, extract the tar.gz into your pandora/appdata/java directory on your SD card, and rename the resulting "jdk1.7.0_06" to simply "jre". It will complain about not being able to extract some files which are symlinks. That shouldn't be a problem, I hope.


So here you go. Suggestions on how to make the "install" process better are welcome. Test known jar files. Test PND'd up java applications.


Once installed, switching between Oracle and OpenJDK is pretty easy: "touch ~/.useopenjdk" to use OpenJDK, "rm ~/.useopenjdk" to go back to Oracle. Or use the installer again, it does that for you, but a little command line work is probably faster.
