So... first things first... I tried on my laptop with Ubuntu Edgy and it
runs fine. Both with Java 1.5.0_08 and 1.6.0... Now let's look at what's
going on here.
First... the "L&F" messages are simple information messages telling you
that AstroStack3LE has found 3 possible look and feels that you should
be able to chose from : Metal, CDE/Motif (yeah, we've stuck with that
horror for a long time), and GTK+. All normal. No worries here.
The first one is telling you that it can't find "default.apf".
I get the same error message when I copy the .jar file to a directory
that doesn't contain the rest of the application files. And it doesn't
prevent anything from working. So, although I don't really know the
application, I suspect that this message isn't really an error but more
of an information, and that it will be created in time when you save
Try it without the "-Xmx256m" parameter (it starts fine like this for me).
I would check a few things...
1) Did you download and unzip this as your normal user, or as root?
2) Are you running it as root or as your normal user? (I did download,
unzip and run as my normal user).
I've tried it on a machine in 1024x768 where I don't get the
"java.awt.Dimension" notification... and also on a machine with
1280x1024 resolution, on which I do... no problems there.
So I'm really at a loss here.
Do you have an exotic graphics configuration (DISPLAY not set to :0.0,
or maybe are you running aiglx or fglrx)?
Have you asked AstroStack support as to what may be causing their
application to not run on your machine? Because for me it runs fine.
