And there probably won't be one, so I'm still trying to figure out why you created this thread. There has to be something you think is not as it should be?
There is currently no issue. Beyond curiosity and seeking wisdom

Re: architecture question

Hi chazb, When you boot up, everything that has changed should be detected (not necessarily properly configured) so I think it might be best to describe what you're having an issue with. No particular issue at the moment. As I am running with old hardware Dell Inspiron 1525, and the budget doesn't ...

LM 18.3 Sylvia, Xfce I have discovered that Linux Mint is not architecture dependent, like Microsoft is. But, Linux Mint still "thinks" so to speak, that it is still in the original computer. My question is; is there a way to (for the lack of a better term) tell the OS that it is in a different hard...

Hi chazb, Have you made sure your system is using the opensource Java 8 runtime using the last 2 commands I posted in my last reply? If not, do that, and retry launching the application again.

Chaz, have you actually read that output? It gives clear and significant information.
Yes Moem, I read it and I didn't any work around for my problem, but I could be wrong. Openjdk8 would probably open my program, but the folks a Ubuntu won't allow it.

Re: JAVA

Hi chazb, There are two versions of Java, open source (openJDK) and Oracle's Java. I always install the Java 8 runtime for both of these and I make the open source Java the default unless I have an application that I must use that requires Oracle's Java. You can make whichever Java runtime you want...
