Firejail javaldx

Post by baker » Fri May 17, 2019 4:45 pm

Hi
When running librewriter from the command prompt I receive the error message failed to launch javaldx. The javaldx file is located in the following directory on my pc usr/lib/libreoffice/program. I am running mint tara 32 bit with cinnamon desktop application. If I try and run same program from the firetool util nothing happens. I am able to run Firefox etc either from the cmd prompt or the firetool utility.

That sounds somewhat like a problem I have on LM18.3, Cinnamon with firejail - I couldn't launch xed, xreader, or xplayer from the gui (don't recall what happened if I tried to launch from the terminal, or if I ever tried). I finally resorted to a workaround by disabling the symlinks xed, xreader, and xplayer in /usr/local/bin. I just changed the name of each of those links; for example to xed_xxx. Not a solution, but an easy workaround. You could try the same with lowriter.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they ain't.
