jEdit won't start after switching from openjdk to sun java
Submitted by sikkiiac on Wednesday, 26 October, 2011 - 18:28
I've switched from openjdk 6 to sun java 6 and now my jEdit won't start.

I'm running Ubuntu 11.10. I reset my JAVA_HOME variable in my .profile file.

I get the same error message when trying to launch jEdit from the terminal by either typing "jedit" or "java -jar jedit.jar" from the installation directory. It says

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.6.0_29/jre/lib/i386/xawt/libmawt.so: libXtst.so.6: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS64
at java.lang.ClassLoader$NativeLibrary.load(Native Method)
at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary0(ClassLoader.java:1807)
...

Reinstalling jEdit didn't work. Any ideas?

Hi,
I suspect this is a 32/64 bit issue. You should ask at the Mailing List ( https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/jedit-devel ). There are the developers.

You're right - I had installed the 32 bit version not the 64.

Thanks!
