Release notes README


Please note that the author of jLog will only test Linux versions of jLog on Linux Mint 18.3 x64 and Ubuntu Linux 16.04 LTS x64 Desktop.
jLog may also run with other variants and versions.

Instructions

  1. Unless already installed, please install the Java Runtime Environment. JRE V1.8 is recommended, but JRE V1.7 may also be used. Please note that the installer will not yet run with Java 9.

    It may be necessary to run: sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB* (or similar name to access the radio interface devices).

  2. Log in as the preferred user and download installer.jar.
    Then, make sure that the installer file is executable by right-clicking and selecting Properties. Under Permissions, check the 'Allow executing the file as program' and close the Properties dialogue.

    Start the installer by right-clicking the installer file, then clicking "Open With Java" (or similar).
    This should start the jLog Installer. Use the default values unless you are very confident with Linux.

    You should find the installed jLog, either in a "jLog6" folder at the top-level of the Start Menu, or in the "Other" folder.
    Once found, you may right-click jLog and pin it to the Start Menu or the Taskbar.

  3. To increase log capacity beyond 25000 - 30000 entries per file, you must change the Java VM properties.

  4. Note that the default UTF-8 environment in SuSE V 9+ may need to be changed to e.g. ISO-8859-1. See changing charset.
