First time poster here.
I’ve just installed Processing on a Pinebook Pro (ARM64 processor; nice machine!) running Manjaro Preview 4. I’m getting a list of Java-related errors when I invoke Processing from the command line or GUI icon. For example:
Exception in thread "AWT-EventQueue-0" java.awt.HeadlessException
Java is not currently installed on the machine.
$ java -version bash: java: command not found
The forums provide conflicting views about whether Processing comes with its own Java implementation and users are not required to install Java separately; the counter view is the reverse of this. I am left somewhat confused. Can anyone confirm which case is correct for Processing for ARM?
If I have to install Oracle Java JDK to get Processing to work, then does anyone have a step-by-step guide for a noob about how to do this? I have downloaded
jdk-8u231-linux-arm64-vfp-hflt.tar.gz from the Oracle site but am unclear about the steps required to successfully install it for use with Processing.
Remember, I’m using Manjaro ARM so please don’t refer me to an Ubuntu PPA or tell me to use a Raspbian image.
I do hope I get Processing running on my Pinebook Pro.
