On March 20, an IGB user reported problems compiling IGB on a Debian machine:
I was trying to compile IGB on my debian machine. I unfortunately encountered an error. Please see the two log files with full stack trace and full debug logging: one with -DskipTests=true (IGB.log) and one without (IGB_skip.log). Is there anything I could do?
After looking at the attached logs, we're realized the problem was that the JavaFX library was not available.
After a few email exchanges, we received the following update:
Thanks for replying about my reported issue. Indeed, it was a problem related to JavaFX. Java was already installed on my machine but running those two commands solved the issue:
apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk openjfx
Cause of Error:
igb-javafx-util: Compilation failure
This package needs java fx to be present.
Below commands to be run on the terminal for installation of Java and JavaFX on Debian 9(Stretch)
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt update
sudo apt-get install openjdk-8-jdk
sudo apt-get install openjfx
Below are steps for installation of Java and JavaFX on Debian 10
Note: Debian 10 does not seem to have openjdk in its default repositories.
1. Download the Correct Java from https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase/javase-jdk8-downloads.html
2. Run the following commands on the terminal from the directory containing the above-downloaded JDK.
sudo mkdir -p /usr/lib/jvm
sudo tar -zxvf jdk-8u251-linux-x64.tar.gz -C /usr/lib/jvm/
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/java java /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_251/bin/java 1
openjdk by default does not contain JavaFX.
