Hi

I sure hope we can get this working - it seems to be just what I'm after!

I downloaded Jaikoz.bin to my home folder - no problem!

I su - ran ./Jaikoz.bin - seemingly no problem!

But... there is no desktop icon. If I try 'Jaikoz' from the command prompt a box flips up then disappears. The same happens if I double click Jaikoz in /opt/jaikoz.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Mark

You need to have an appropriate version of java installed and available on your path to install (and run) Jaikoz, please check this with, when logged as root.
Code:
java -version


Should be at least java 1.4.2 (preferably java 1.5), and be the jvm provided by Sun.

Me again the problem is that is was installed as root and needs to be run as root running as root seems to fix it but can get annoying

I think the core problem is that it is trying to create and open logging files in a directory owned by root.

Is there a way to specify where the log files should live?

This problem has already been reported, there is no way to chnage the location of the log files. The simplest workaround is to either run as root or chmod 777 the directory that Jaikoz was installed in

Hello,

I've got the same problem, with an debian Kunbuntu 6.10.

Is the chmod 777 is really mandatory ?
not very secure !

Why could'nt you put le log in the user home directory as a standard .jaikoz?

The logs files are now created in the users home directory( since 1.6.1) The problem occurs because the trial license is still created within the Jaikoz folder when you first start it. so you need to run as root the first time to run Jaikoz, and create the license file.

After this you should be able to run successfully as a normal user.
