fails on startup: org.leo.traceroute.install.EnvException: java.lang.NoSuchFieldException: usr_paths

@UtopianShoe: Okay, I see. The script contains stuff that we don't need anyway, so I have removed it now and start the jar directly from the ovtr script.

@Jake: It seems to be related to the script ./

The program can now launch as long as I change the line in $HOME/ovtr/ from is.3D=true to is.3D=false. I presumably lack the necessary package installed for the 3D rendering.

@UtopianShoe: I don't have that installed and it runs fine. Seems strange to me, why should Xhost be required for this tool?

UtopianShoe commented on 2020-10-29 14:36

This package requires xorg-xhost. Can you add that as a dependency?

Jake commented on 2020-02-03 22:42

I have set java-runtime to below version 11 now, that should fix it.

flowingisart commented on 2020-01-25 03:33

Install with java-runtime package jre10 rather than the newest edition to avoid errors at start time. Cheers.

Tracetoute not working (whois is fine). In logs I can see "Cannot find a suitable network device for tracing"

Hi, this package requires traceroute. Can you add that as a dependency.
