Screenshot of failure

Hi,
I have attached a screenshot of the terminal to show where the launch fails. Can anybody see from the screenshot why the quotestream is failing to load.

From that it seems quotestream uses java which has been deprecated. Errors occur as soon as the launch begins and get progressively worse.

It seems you are running java from a remote server and the only way to find and fix the errors would be to contact the quotestream people directly.

Allowing a remote server to run java on your system is inherently very dangerous

The relevant error is the NoClassDefFound javafx/application/Platform bit.

JavaFX used to be included with the main Java Runtime but is now separate, so it's probably related to that.

Putting the error into a search engine returns this similar error, and confirms the above:
https://askubuntu.com/questions/1136420/java-lang-noclassdeffounderror-javafx-application-application


How are you launching quotestream? (i.e. do you have control over the java command executed?)

It might be enough to install OpenJFX and update the command as per the answer at the above link, or it might be that quotestream expects to run against Java 8, and you should install OpenJDK 8 LTE from either your distro's repo or from AdoptOpenJDK.

It looks like Quotestream is commercial software, so you should definitely get in contact with them and make use of their support - either you're already paying for it, or you're evaluating it (and thus want to know how well they respond to issues).
