Installation instruction on Fedora29


(lok.mikki) #1

Hi,
Hope all is well.

I have downloaded “ganttproject-2.8.9-r2335.zip” file on fedora os (Version fedora29).
Extracted files to “ganttproject-2.8.9-r2335” folder and changed ganttproject.bat file permissions to executable.
Running bat file gives below message
ERROR: error getting working directory name: no such file or directory
/home/petcare/Documents/ganttproject-2.8.9-r2335/ganttproject.bat: line 1: @echo: command not found

When i run “java -version” from within unzipped folder, i get following
Unrecognized option: --version
Error: Could not create the Java Virtual Machine.
Error: A fatal exception has occurred. Program will exit.

When i drop one level to Documents folder running “java -version” gives
openjdk version “1.8.0_191”
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_191-b13)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.191-b13, mixed mode)

Where can i find installation instructions relevant on fedora?
On fedora can ganttproject be installed or i have to open by running bat file every time?
Thanks in advance.

ganttproject.bat is Windows batch file. On Linux systems you need to run ganttproject script (no extension).

Hi Dmitry,
Thanks for replying.

After running ganttproject script, i have following warning in log file.
As these are not errors can we assume installation was successful?
Are there more steps for installation? Cannot see ganttproject under list of installed programs.

You seem to be using headless Java Runtime which does not allow for running desktop apps. You need to install full JRE.


(lok.mikki) #5

Hi Dmitry,
Worked after installing jave JRE.
Installed JRE using below
sudo yum install java-1.8.0-openjdk
to open ganttproject
./ganttproject

Every time to open ganttproject do i have to run ./ganttproject in terminal?

You can add a shortcut to the launcher if you wish. See e.g. these instructions:

https://ask.fedoraproject.org/en/question/30272/how-to-create-shortcut-in-launcher/

Keep in mind that you need to put full path to ganttproject script int Exec line. If you need an icon, here is one
