[SOLVED] PeasyCam raises NoSuchMethodError for PApplet::registerDraw when using Intellij

Hi, trying to move my project into Intelij*, but I can’t get PeasyCam to work.
I’ve added the library to the project, and it correctly recognizes the PeasyCam type, but when I run the sketch I get the following runtimeException:

java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: processing.core.PApplet.registerDraw(Ljava/lang/Object;)V

Seems to be related to OpenGL, but without PeasyCam I have no problem running P3D sketches, and the jogl libs are available in the project.

*Not the most reccomended path for beginners, I know, but since my job uses Intelij I’ve grown quite accustumed…


Hi, I just tried add it to my current project and it works. I have peasycam.jar and peasy-math.jar added to Global Libraries. I add

private PeasyCam cam;

to my main class which extends PApplet, and

cam = new PeasyCam(this, 400);

inside setup() (not inside settings()!). That’s all.


I somehow missed the peasy-math.jar… Oops.
Thanks! Hope it’ll be helpful to some other poor fools in the future :wink:

To avoid that problem, when adding a Processing library in IntelliJ Idea, I normally add the whole folder that contains the jar (instead of selecting a specific jar file), because this searches for any jars or system dependent binaries found in that folder and adds them to the project.

The exception to that is when I add the Processing core libraries (or libraries that have OS dependent versions), because I do not want to add Mac or Windows libraries since I’m on Linux. Then I manually select only these:


The last two will depend on the OS you are targeting.
