Re: Installing Family Search Indexing on Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit)

Ok, hopefully this can help anyone else who runs into this issue.

I have a 64-bit machine but it seems that the 32-bit JRE is bundled with the app.

I ran

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install libxtst6:i386
to get the JRE needed. Solved the problem.

Thanks for your time Mariano, much appreciated!

Re: Installing Family Search Indexing on Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit)

I haven't really looked at it, I've only done a little bit of shell scripting, and I only needed a brief look at Indexing_unix.sh to realise I had no idea what was going on. Could this have to do with the .jar files in the bin folder not having any execute permissions? But then I don't understand wh...

Re: Installing Family Search Indexing on Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit)

Sorry, I probably wasn't very clear - I do better with bullet points :mrgreen: [*] I saved the script which is on the familysearch site at the install stage, "Indexing_unix.sh". [*] When I ran it I saw this message: Could not display the GUI. This application needs access to an X Server. *...

Re: Installing Family Search Indexing on Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit)

Great thanks, it's Unity then. I'm none the wiser after a few Google searches on Ubuntu, Unity and X server so I'd really appreciate any help, as it will hopefully enhance my knowledge of Linux too

Re: Installing Family Search Indexing on Ubuntu 14.04 (64bit)

On Ubuntu 14.04, unsure which desktop env I've got, but I'm having a few issues here.
