Images, Java, and Linux

Hi all,

I have written a java application which displays an image via the ImageIcon class.

It works fine on my Windows machine, but now that I try to execute the same program on a linux machine the image doesnt show up. I changed the location of the image when I made the switch from Windows to Linux, so that is not the problem. Also, the image is a jpg.

If anyone has any ideas, itd be much appreciated.

have you check if the path to the jpg image is correct? Windows and Linux has different path statement to the specific file.

eg: for windows is c:\\directory\pic.jpeg, linux will be /home/user/pic.jpg

And lastly Windows use backslash in their paths. Unix and others use forward slash

I guess the problem was just that the extension was in all capitals and linux cared whereas windows did not.
