How to nicely install processing with linux

Initial installation to have processing run

As root you have to

  1.  Install the Sun JDK6 in a standard location, e.g. /usr/java
    1. Gets, e.g. jdk-6u21-linux-i586.bin, from in /tmp
    2. Runs cd /usr/java ; /tmp/jdk-6u21-linux-i586.bin and follow instructions
  2. Install the processing files
    1. Gets, e.g. processing- from
    2. Copy processing in a standard location, e.g. /usr/java
      1. tar xvzf processing- ; mv processing-1.2.1 /usr/java ; /bin/rm processing-
    3. Adapt the preferences to Linux (assuimg here you use firefox and gnome)
      1. sed -i 's/brower.linux *= .*/browser.linux = firefox/' /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/lib/preferences.txt
      2. sed -i 's/[#]?launcher.linux *= .*/launcher.linux = gnome-open/' /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/lib/preferences.txt
  3. Link the JDK6 to processing
    1. /bin/rm -rf /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/java ; ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_21 /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/java
  4. You may have to install the proper sound/graphic librairies from the openjdk to the sunjdk (use locate to find the libraries in your system)
    1. cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_21/jre/lib/i386/
    2. cp /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.6.0-openjdk- /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_21/
    3. cp /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/libraries/opengl/library/*.so /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_21/jre/lib/i386/
  5. To see the applets in firefox you may have to
    1. rpm -e java-1.6.0-openjdk-plugin erase the open-jdk web browser plugin
    2. ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_21/jre/plugin/i386/ns7/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins install manually the JRE plugin
    3. for firefox-3.6 and latter
      1. ln -s /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_22/jre/lib/i386/ /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins
  6. Optionnaly install additional librairies if needed in /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/librairies

How to choose your sketchbook workdir

  • Run /usr/java/processing-1.2.1/processing
  • In $HOME/.processing/preferences.txt edit the sketchbook.path=<my-workdir> line for your convinience
  • rm $HOME/sketchbook

Using you own processing starter (makefile commands)

export PATH:=$(J_HOME)/bin:$(PATH)
export CLASSPATH=$(shell echo '$(J_HOME)/lib/tools.jar $(J_HOME)/jre/lib/rt.jar $(wildcard $(P_HOME)/lib/*.jar)' | sed 's/ /:/g')

gui :
	@cd $(P_HOME) ; java
