sweethome3d can't find java runtime

Asked by Simon Oosthoek

In ubuntu 10.10 I was able to start sweethome3d (installed from a package in the repository (probably multiverse)).

Now, after upgrading to 11.04 I get this:

[warning] /usr/bin/sweethome3d: Unable to locate /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/javaws.jar in /usr/share/java
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/jnlp/UnavailableServiceException

        at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadClass(ClassLoader.java:266)
Could not find the main class: com.eteks.sweethome3d.SweetHome3D. Program will exit.

[1]+ Exit 1 sweethome3d

I tried re-installing the package of sweethome3d, but that didn't change the outcome when starting it.

I recommend you install sun java from the partner repo, it may help

tnx, I must have had something like that before when it worked...

I had an older commented-out entry for lucid in my source.list, I wonder if that kept on working during maverick and not with the latest upgrade... Anyway, sweethome3d is working again!

It worked again after (re-?)installing sun-java6-jre
