with a current arch system, replicatorg will segfault when you try to run it. temporary solution in to down grade to these packages:

jre7-openjdk-7.u79_2.5.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz jre7-openjdk-headless-7.u79_2.5.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz jdk7-openjdk-7.u79_2.5.5-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz

I plan on submitting a bug report to replicatorg sometime tomorrow

hope this is the right place to post to:

concerning the permission problems:
- make sure you are in group users
- sudo chmod g+w /opt/replicatororg

.. than you are allowed to write in that directory

concerning the lockfile problem (path for 64bit system):
I had to copy my /usr/lib/ to /opt/replicatorg/lib-x86_64
/usr/share/java/rxtx/RXTXcomm.jar to /opt/replicatorg/lib

even tough symbol links would be better this worked for me.

I guess you are right, ivanovp. Fixed now.

ivanovp commented on 2014-08-20 12:04

arch=('x86' 'x86_64') should be
arch=('i686' 'x86_64')

ivanovp commented on 2014-06-14 05:57

arch=('i686' 'x86_64')
should be instead of
arch=('x86' 'x86_64')

Replicatorg do write to my $HOME/.replicatorg

fertorresf commented on 2014-01-09 16:07

I just installed the package and run it with sudo ... and it started to generate a lot of .hex files on the /root/.replicatorg/firmware folder.

After that I had no permission issues.

It seems that the permission wasn't to access its /opt/ folder, but the /root/ no?

Anyways, this seems to be supposed to happen in our $HOME no?

the examples can be loaded if the program is run by root. in a mac forum, someone said the program will write something in the installed dir. although i copied the program in my home dir, it doesnot work as a normal user. i also got some errors "check_group_uucp(): error testing lock file creation Error details:Permission deniedcheck_lock_status: No permission to create lock file.
please see: How can I use Lock Files with rxtx? in INSTALL"
when the program run by normail user.

What does ls -la /opt/replicatorg/examples/ tell you? Maybe you have to run as root once, it will write some firmware to the dir.

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 09:39

my primary group is "chancho", but i am also in the "users" group. still can not open the example files.

nickoe commented on 2013-10-02 09:19

I don't quite see why it won't work for you, it works here. If you can fix it I will have a look.

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 09:17

good question, i will check.

nickoe commented on 2013-10-02 09:09

are you in users group?

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 08:58

ReplicatorG can not write to the directory /opt/replicatorg.
You may be running ReplicatorG from an archive or other read-only directory.
Please quit ReplicatorG and extract it to a writeable localtion, then start again.

also got
Loading /home/chancho/3D_Knot.stl
Permission denied

nickoe commented on 2013-10-02 08:52

Can you please paste the exact messages somewhere?

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 08:47

and i also got permission error when i try to load the examples both from the examples dir or my home dir (i cp the examples to my home dir).

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 08:41

i don't know, when i run the program a dialog comes up with the wirte permission error. so i guess the program may want to write something into that dir.

nickoe commented on 2013-10-02 08:01

But the examples are in /opt and, those are not normally supposed to be edited again. I guess that was what you tried to do.

nickoe commented on 2013-10-02 08:00

No, it should not be nessesay to run as root.

chancho commented on 2013-10-02 07:54

i got error about writing to /opt/replicatorg. should i run the program as root.

nickoe commented on 2013-05-12 16:48

Adapted package and updated to 0040.

feilen commented on 2013-05-06 17:16

It's also broken, replicatorg is unpackagable since it requires user permission in package areas. I thought I had this package removed, I'll have to ask someone about it.

golvok commented on 2013-05-06 05:07

This is rather out of date... edit PKGBUILD and change the version variable to the current value (0040 at the time of writing).

feilen commented on 2011-11-28 22:42

Hmm... still has a permissions problem. Anyone know what it tries to write to, specifically? I'm betting SF.
