Hi, everybody.
dpkg (on Debian testing (Lenny)) throws following message when I´m installing lg3d-core from the testing repo:
/usr/share/lg3d/bin/postinstall: line 43: cd: /usr/share/lg3d/bin/../lib/linux-/lg3d-x11/programs/Xserver: File or Directory not found
chown: Aacces to 'Xorg' failed: file or directory not found

and the same for chgrp and chmod

Whrere is the problem and exits a fix for it?

Greets,

I have found an indirect answer. But my next question: Will be the apt-sources getting updated?

What version are you running? I'm guessing you are seeing the same
issue that the latest version of Ubuntu have seen (from the output it
looks like it) - that more recent versions of Debian no longer have
/bin/arch.

I've built a newer version that fixes this issue, but I haven't linked
it to the binary builds page yet.

https://lg3d-core.dev.java.net/files/documents/1834/84267/lg3d-core_1.0....

I know this has some issues with java 1.6.0.0 but I'm guessing testing
is running 1.6.0.4 or later so it should be fine.
Also, I haven't built a 64 bit version (I don't have a machine to do
this), but Amir was looking into it because there are some issues with
the Lg3d Xserver and some changes in more recent X11 distributions.

Hi, Kirk and all others.
I´m running Debian Testing (Lenny 32bit) on an Athlon 2000+.
Thanks for a working downloadlink.
But my question is: Will the projects own apt-server be maintained in the future?

Greetings,

There is an apt server? I'm sure the community will continue to
provide deb packages - however the automated daily builds are no
longer happening as that was done by the guys at Sun, and there hasn't
been much code change in the last year to warrant it either (Sun's
focus has moved to Project Wonderland - there has been a thread
recently about this).

However, I'll do a rebuild of the deb package with the fix for java
1.6.0_0 this weekend and update the binary-builds page.

I didn't realise there was one... but looking at the link on the
Getting started page I now see where you mean. I don't have access to
javadesktop.org where they are hosted... so they haven't been update
there (or on download.java.net). I'll see what I can do, otherwise we
might need to look at other hosting options to keep a debian
repository up.

I'm just uploading the rebuild of the CVS head for i386 at the moment.
This is primarily a fix to support Java 1.6.0_0 (which is the jdk
installed in Feisty and maybe Etch?). But I also removed the
lg3d-backgrounds.jar to take it back to its smaller size of 72Mb. So
if you are running on a later JDK don't worry about upgrading.

It will be available from the binary-builds page:
https://lg3d-core.dev.java.net/binary-builds.html#latestubuntu when it
finishes uploading.

Hi, Kirk and others.

The package is a quite nice doing, but I have a remark:

I think it should be better to replace the LG3DX11HOME environmentvariable by a more general one like LG3DHOME or LGHOME and make all paths in the skripts relative to this variable. In effect it is to start lookingglass by maklng symlinks for example in /usr/bin.

This is the case - everything is based upon the LGDIR environment
variable, and then the paths are worked out relative to this. The
scripts are a little confusing because they are made to run on the
development setup as well as the release setup... and there are some
changes made to the scripts by ant when the packages are built.
