I just got interested in Processing lately and thinking of trying it out. Does anyone run archlinux by any chance?
There is this processing package (Processing 3.4-2) in arch’s official repo, but after the installation it mentioned:
Processing does not really support OpenJDK, only Java from Sun and Oracle.
If you counter any issues with this package, please file bug reports with
Processing and/or OpenJDK until Processing can officially support OpenJDK.
Seems like the processing from archlinux’s package uses the OpenJDK version of java:
So instead of using that, I should manually download Processing from the official website and extrat the .tgz file? And within it are everything needed for running Processing (java included) ?
By the way, is it possible to use an external editor like Emacs instead of the default Processing IDE?
I see a emacs package from Melpa called “processing-mode” but its descriptions says it’s for processing 2.0.
Does anyone know if there’s still a way to use emacs as the editor these days?
Thanks in advance.
