I’ve been using (and teaching) Processing for years. I’ve been using Processing 4 pretty much since it came out. This afternoon I was suddenly unable to start Processing. There are no error messages, it simply exits. Probably the last time I ran Processing was yesterday, and I have not updated or made any changes to my system since then.
I have tried removing and re-installing Processing. I have removed the entire .processing configuration directory.
Processing 3.5.4 works fine.
I start Processing from the command line. I see no messages or errors in my terminal or in syslog.
Is there a way to run Processing in a more verbose way to get some indication of where it’s having trouble? I’m afraid that I don’t know much about Java.
