Having trouble installing Sikuli on Ubuntu 18.04LTS

Asked by arminius on 2018-07-19

I googled around, tried "https://askubuntu.com/questions/223429/how-can-i-get-sikuli-ide-to-work"

    user@Computer:~$ sikuli-ide
    sikuli-ide: command not found

Tried a few other things, they might all be for an older version of Ubuntu, can anyone point me to the current best guide?

... but be prepared to get a version of OpeneCV 2.4

when I right click on the Jar file, it comes up with open with Open JDK Java 11 runtime, I click on that, and nothing happens.
It's been set to be an executable.

Java 11?

Will only be available officially in September?

You should use Java 8 (LTS) or Java 10

so I followed these instructions "https://tecadmin.net/install-oracle-java-8-ubuntu-via-ppa/"
and now when I right click on the jar file it says open with oracle java 8 runtime
but alas nothing happens.
Maybe I should open a thread on the Ubuntu forum.

recommended: use 1.1.3 nightly and follow the instructions on
http://sikulix.com -> Nightly Builds

I was able to compile steps for configuring required modules for sikuli 1.1.2 on Ubuntu18/Lubuntu18
