Is it possible to run the 32 bit LG3D (with the 32 bit JVM) on a AMD64 system (Ubuntu Linux)?

I've tried installing the three i686 Ubuntu packages (I've used --force-architecture to make them install on AMD64), but when I run lg3d-session it says:

ERROR:
Cannot find Xserver executable: /usr/share/lg3d/bin/../lib/linux-x86_64/lg3d-x11/programs/Xserver/Xorg.
Either the environment variable LGX11HOME is not set properly
or lg3d-core was not built properly with X11 support.
For instructions on how to build lg3d-core with X11 support
refer to the Project Looking Glass Developers Guide.

Any idea?

Hi ekerazha,

I don't use AMD64, so I cannot reproduce the issue you encountered, but here is something you could try...

In the bin/setup script, you'll see the following lines:[code]export ARCH=`/bin/arch`
...
export LGX11HOME=${LGDIR}/lib/${OS}-${ARCH}/lg3d-x11[/code]
What happens if you modify the first line and forcibly set 'i686' to ARCH?

It works!

... but also with this release (0.8.1) I've the "blank shell"+"not working keyboard" issue :(

This isn't only a xterm issue... every "not-3D" application I run (Mozilla etc.) loads partially (=unusable) and the keyboard doesn't work. Unfortunately I have no more time to play around with LG3D.

Hmmm... too bad to know that trick didn't work that well...

Deron, can you think of anything he could possibly try?
