Sweet Home 3D crashes when I request preferences

Asked by Juan Tyson on 2014-09-26

I am using Ubuntu 14.04 (trusty) on AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 240 Processor, 800.000 MHz.

I installed it from the Ubuntu Software Center.

When I request the preferences the display just disapears. This just started happening. I also can not load any Furniture librarys, the program keeps working. I know this is probibly a problem with the programe itself but I thought I would just mention it.

All help is appreciated.

I will be going to Bugzilla to report a bug

Again Thanks a lot.

There is a PPA for Oracle Java, may help. What is the output of:

lsb_release -a; uname -a

Hear is the output

No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Ubuntu

Add that PPA and try it with Oracle Java. Use TAB and ENTER to accept the licence

Thanks again for the help, I will report this to Ubuntu per Bugzilla's suggestion.

I will close this bug as invalud because it happened in native code part of the mesa3d project thus this bug is not caused by any part of the IcedTea project.

libGL originate from the Mesa 3D project [0]

I reccomend that you to report this bug to your linux distribution that package this version of mesa, java3d and sweethome3d.

The package you use are using and old versions java3d.
/usr/share/java/j3dcore-1.5.2+dfsg.jar <- this version has not been updated since 2008 and is no longer maintained.[1]

According to the readme in the latest version of sweethome3d [2]
your linux distribution should package the community maintained version of java3d 1.6
Java 3D 1.6 libraries used for Java 7 are available at:
and source code can be dosnwloaded at:

[0] http://www.mesa3d.org/

Agan I thank you

My problem is related to Bug #1058040 (fglrx not installed and will not work with RADON 4200)

Thank you Andrew for the help.
