Angry Can anyone explain this in plain English ?


CAN ANYONE EXPLAIN THIS IN PLAIN ENGLISH ?

I am trying to get Oracle SQLDeveloper to work on Ubuntu 14.10...

/usr/bin$ sqldeveloper

(gnome-terminal:7440): GLib-GIO-CRITICAL **: g_settings_get: the format string may not contain '&' (key 'monospace-font-name' from schema 'org.gnome.desktop.interface'). This call will probably stop working with a future version of glib.

I think this means that your version of glib is too new for Oracle SQLDev, and soon will not support what it is trying to do. Try downloading Solaris or Oracle Linux (both are free for personal use), and install them in VirtualBox to ensure that SQLDev works correctly.

This is just a warning, you will get them with GTK applications all the time (at least I do). It means that the software uses a deprecated format for a function call to the glib library, which might at some point in the future stop working. I would not worry about that, just test it again if you prepare for a version upgrade of your OS.

Oracle SQLDeveloper
if you are using the database sdk
you REALLY!!! should be running it on ORACLES own operating system
the OS that is optimized to run oracles database the best

Oracle Linux 7.0
or the bit older version
Oracle Linux 6.6


but that warnning is just that a warning
the Operating system is using glib that is way newer than the program was built for
and some features that the program are using WILL BE REMOVED soon

just a warning that is telling you
to update the program that is triggering this warning

The problem is that the message is stopping SQL-Developer from running. The launch just cancels.

I'm ok with Ubuntu 14.10 so I don't really want to install a new OS. I really just need to manage a SQL-Server DB and this tool sounded promising. There are other options but the java-based ones are rather ugly.

So to confirm, you have run the shell script provided to launch the program and that is the only message you receive?
Where did you install the software? Personally I just run it from my hoe directory.

Also, what version of jdk are you running and what version of sqldeveloper?

JDK 8

I'm just running from home/downloads to test it out.

I didn't use Alien to convert the file to Debian, I used the tool from the software centre - I forget what it's called. Perhaps I'll retry with Alien.

In your first post it seemed to not make sense as to where you were running it from. Perhaps you could run it again and paste all the output so we can see and try to assist?

I have had no issue running this under Arch and all I did was download the zip from Oracle, extract it and run the included shell script

would it be simpler to just:
Code:
sudo apt-get install mysql-server
(or am i off premise) ?

Will that allow me to manage a remote MS SQL-Server database ?

i dont think so. you didnt mention this was on windows.

moderator: should this go in the non-*nix subforum ?

i am curious as well... does anyone know if the mysql client can connect to a non-mysql server ? (my understanding is that sql is sql so it should work; but knowing microsoft they probably put some arbitrary defensive coding in place to ensure you have to purchase an ms-sql license)

maybe run something like this but point the ip address to the oracle/ms-sql host (and change the port number):

I am not running windows...

"I am trying to get Oracle SQLDeveloper to work on Ubuntu 14.10"

... so I can manage a client's SQL Server DB. It's what I do for a living and i was hoping to be able to do it with a Linux client.
