Java GUI Problems

Postby nikolayo on Sat Feb 23, 2013 3:35 pm

There are known problems with Java GUI under Mate and Cinnamon . Dropdown menus do not work properly when a java application is running maximized. On the development site at GitHub the problem is said to be soved. See :

https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin/pul ... nt-9238050

Can somebody please advise when and how the fix will be available for Linux Mint users?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Right now you can try to use the Oracle Java for linux instead of the Open JDK until some issues are fixed for that open source Java run time environment.

Try to purge open JDK and replace it with the Oracle java runtime environment with these commands in the terminal. I got this in another thread here but I will copy paste it in here for you and others looking into development.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

Preparing your system:

First you need to remove openjdk for this run the following command from your terminal

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge openjdk*




If you installed java 7 from any other PPA and you are having problem with java then you have to do following steps before installing the PPA mentioned here:


Code: Select all
 sudo rm /var/lib/dpkg/info/oracle-java7-installer*


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get purge oracle-java7-installer*


Code: Select all
sudo rm /etc/apt/sources.list.d/*java*


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update



NOW : Install oracle java 7 in Linux Mint 14.1

Open the terminal and run the following commands:

Code: Select all
 sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/java


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get update


Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer


Hopefully that will help you with your Java problems.

I am already using the Oracle JDK but the problem occurs with both the Open JDK and Oracle JDK.

P.S.: Let me please underline once more that the problem and the fix are in the windows manager. So the question is when and how Mate and Connamon with the fix described here :

https://github.com/linuxmint/muffin/pul ... nt-9238050

will be available to Linux Mint users. On the development site the fix is dated some 5 months ago...
