Running JMRI/Decoder Pro - Run in Terminal - Terminal flashes and dissappears.

I have downloaded the JMRI/Decoder Pro package. When I go to open Decoder Pro I get the screen which asks, Run in Terminal, Display, ,?, and Run. If I select Run I get no response, If I select Run in Terminal The Terminal screen flashes for only a second and dissapears.

I have not been able to get an Icon to launch the program from my desktop.

I am usung Linux Mint 16 (Petra)3.11.0-12 generic (MATE) 1.6.1

JMRI is the standard download for Linux from Source . org.

I am new to both Linux (3 yrs) JMRI had worked with it some in Windows, Totally new in Linux.

I don't know what else to include, I'll be happy to answer questions.

No clue on JMRI itself, but researching this shows it to be a Java module rather than a program. Make sure that java is installed and operational on your system.

Thanks Joseph.. I have folllowed through to this link ( that you gave me. I have checked the "Java" as suggested and this is my terminal reading.

harvey@harvey-MS-7529 ~ $ update-alternatives --display java
java - auto mode
link currently points to /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java
/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java - priority 1071
slave java.1.gz: /usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/man/man1/java.1.gz
Current 'best' version is '/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-i386/jre/bin/java'.

So from this I feel as far as Java is concerned I should be O.K. This would be the one installed with the latest versions for JMRI.. I will check out the Yahoo JMRI User group and see if I can find something in those files.

Thanks for your help thus far.

I know this is a late reply to this post, but I only started using Linux a few days ago and I was having problems getting JMRI to run with openjdk 10.0.2. I then spotted this and disabling the assistive technology allowed JMRI to start up.

Hope this is of use to others.
