Post by ramk »

Hi

Solution / Resolution - Added 12th August 2019 (12:12 Indian Standard Time) see new reply
Added on 27th July 2019 (15:15 Indian Standard Time)
Below is the original post. However the 3 reply has the correctly identified issue - am unsure if it should be a new thread or here. So am placing it in this thred

Original Post
Error 1 - while running Java

Code: Select all

$ ./ITR.sh
Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application
Error 2 -

Code: Select all

$ ./ITR.sh 
Error: Could not find or load main class com.itd.efiling.offline.common.player.ctrl.ThreeRedLightsIlluminate
Am trying to run a Jar file related to Income Tax Filing (in india). There are different forms (hence different JAR files available)

I tried running two different forms (ITR3 and ITR 4 https://www.incometaxindiaefiling.gov.i ... s?lang=eng) and both give different errors

I checked this [SOLVED] Can't run .jar files with JavaFX while having openjfx installed viewtopic.php?f=47&t=293529&p=1631235&h ... x#p1631235 but the solution there does not resolve the issue for me . However am posting some of the details asked for in that query.

I also tried different version of Java / openjdk but the error returned are the same

Other system Details provided are
1. Java Versions installed and available
2. Java /openjfx version installed and path
3. Inxi -Fxzd

Java Versions installed

Code: Select all

$ sudo update-alternatives --config java
     There are 3 choices for the alternative java (providing /usr/bin/java).

Re: Java -""Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application"

Post by ramk »

Hi

So an update

I ran Linux Mint 18.1 as a live session. By default it has openjdk-8-jre installed .
When I ran the .jar file it provided the same error message - however I then instaled openjfx and after that the file opened as it should.


So it seems the issue is the the later versions of openjdk (i.e beyond 8) that for some reason are preventing the application from running smoothly

Now the questions is can i purge / remove all files related to java and just reinstall open-jdk8 and get the files work

Will let you know how this goes and after this will see if this should me marked as solved or "worked around"

Re: (Issue Identified but Unsolved) "Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this applicat

Post by ramk »

PROBLEM IDENTIFIED
*CRUX of what seems the issue**
Tha openjdk-8 which is the selected environment is not able to "call" on the correct version of openjfx installed (which is openjfx/bionic 8u*

But am unable to resolve it.

##DETAILED##
So the original error message is

Code: Select all

Error: JavaFX runtime components are missing, and are required to run this application
This is to run a Tax software that requires JRE (Java Runtime Environment) Version 8 with latest updates

After a lot of searching and not being able to come across a solution I tried to see if an older Linux Mint version would run the software.
So Ran a live session of Linux Mint 18.
The live session has openjdk environment installed by default. But returned the same error message as in the title.
*however* installing the default openjfx version in the available default repositories then also installed openjdk-8 (and related software) which in turn enabled the required Tax software to run.

I replicated the same in two more live sessions as well as in the latest Linux Mint 19 (Mate).

In each case the following parameters were consistent
Live Session Linux Mint 19.1

**
By default Openjdk-11 is on

then i installed openjfx which automatically installs openjdk-8

then the ITR software works

****
Current Config is

Code: Select all

$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_162"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_162-8u162-b12-1-b12)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.162-b12, mixed mode)

Code: Select all

$ apt list --installed openjfx -a
Listing... Done
openjfx/bionic,now 8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 amd64 [installed]

Code: Select all

~$ sudo update-alternatives --config java
There are 2 choices for the alternative java (providing /usr/bin/java).

  Selection    Path                                            Priority   Status

* 2            /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java   1081      manual mode


Press <enter> to keep the current choice[*], or type selection number: 
** NEXT STEP REPLICATING THIS ON THE INSTALLED 18.3 LINUX MINT**
First , I uninstalled any extra ppa's that I had (like the webupd8 repos etc)

then using this guide https://novicestuffs.wordpress.com/2017 ... rom-linux/
I uninstalled openjdk and opnjfx and manually found and deleted everything and anything to do with openjdk.


I then reinstalled openjdk-11 (and associated files)
After that installed openjfx but here it did not autoinstall openjdk-8 (and associated files)

However I still end up with the same error (as in the title)

**CRUX of what seems the issue**
Tha openjdk-8 which is the selected environment is not able to "call" on the correct version of openjfx installed (which is openjfx/bionic 8u*

Because under lve sessions it works everytime however in each case the openjfx is version openjfx/bionic 8u*

Below is the output of the current openjfx environment - and I am not unable to find how to make sure the openjfx/bionic 8u* is the selected openjfx environment

Code: Select all

$ apt list --installed openjfx -a
Listing... Done
openjfx/bionic-updates,bionic-security,now 11.0.2+1-1~18.04.2 amd64 [installed]
openjfx/bionic 8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 amd64
***
**WORKAROUND**
Right now the long way to get my work done is to work through a Live Session.

I thought, that maybe, doing a fresh install of an OS might work but am pretty sure that as soon as I run the first updates the software will get upgraded and the conditions will change and the software won't work anymore.

However would like to know if its possible to resolve this on the already installed session. I guess very specifically (if the problem is identified correctly) how to make sure the correct openjfx works

Thank you

I found your attempts and info illuminating. I have the exact same need to file tax returns but on Ubuntu Linux 18.04 LTS 64-bit where Java 11 is default but openjdk 8 can be installed; openjfx 11 alone is available in the repos.
I have solved my issue by getting the Java 8 jre from https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java ... 33155.html; I have the tar.gz version expanded in /opt and am able to do

Code: Select all

/opt/jre1.8.0_221/bin/java -jar ./ITR-1_AY201920_PR4.1.jar
However, Oracle insists that one register before permitting jre download.

Hi tagMacher

Thanks,

I just saw your reply

In the mean time I got help from a friend who is very experienced and since I was able to provide him with the exact problem it took about 5 minutes to solve.

***
If any one is interested in the exact sequence of commands, trial and errors and eventual success they may please see the attached file which has the Summary and Sequence of commands used to identify the correct packages and install them
**
The solution was eventually really simple but something I needed to learn

using apt-get -V to get the versions available

and then using the same installed the appropriate version of openjdk 8, openjfx 8 and the related "correct" dependencies.

The sequence of commands is given below

Code: Select all

# apt-cache show openjfx
after finding the correct version then

Code: Select all

# apt-get -V install openjfx=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2
when finding that wrong versions were being installed continued to check each package

as in -

Code: Select all

# apt-cache show libopenjfx-java
the after finding all the appropriate packages and dependencies the following was run (after appropriate trial and errors to arrive at the exact ones that needed installation

Code: Select all

apt-get -V install openjfx=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-java=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-jni=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2
After that the Software works as required

**

Code: Select all

$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_222"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_222-8u222-b10-1ubuntu1~18.04.1-b10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.222-b10, mixed mode)

Code: Select all

# update-alternatives --config java
There is only one alternative in link group java (providing /usr/bin/java): /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/java
Nothing to configure.

I registered in this forum just to thank @ramk. Your detailed post saved me lot of headache while filing the returns at the last minute. Just last week, I wiped out windows. Thank you.

I wonder if there is a way we could help each other every year as I expect income tax's dev could throw some surprises for linux users (may be due to lack of testing).

After that the Software works as required
How can I figure out which JavaFX / openjfx versions are available to install???

Your solution worked fine, but I rather would like to figure how I can define which version JavaFX / 'openjfx' is the best according the 'java' version, which is running on my system.

Code: Select all

$ java -version
openjdk version "1.8.0_252"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_252-8u252-b09-1~18.04-b09)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.252-b09, mixed mode)
https://github.com/eclipse/paho.mqtt-sp ... -640882578
ERROR
has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 54.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0
the complete errror:

Code: Select all

Error: A JNI error has occurred, please check your installation and try again
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: javafx/application/Application has been compiled by a more recent version of the Java Runtime (class file version 54.0), this version of the Java Runtime only recognizes class file versions up to 52.0
I know you wrote : by ' trial and error'.

So I followed your information and tried out for version '8u252-b09', but without success:

Code: Select all

$ sudo apt-get -V install openjfx=8u252-b09-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-java=8u252-b09-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-jni=8u252-b09-1ubuntu2

E: Version '8u252-b09-1ubuntu2' for 'libopenjfx-java' was not found
E: Version '8u252-b09-1ubuntu2' for 'libopenjfx-jni' was not found
But how did you find that the version '8u161-b12' is available?

Code: Select all

apt-get -V install openjfx=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-java=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2 libopenjfx-jni=8u161-b12-1ubuntu2
The installed versions

Code: Select all
