Download the jLog application for Linux
The installer and optional files are available under these License
Please note that the author of jLog will only test Linux versions of
jLog on the latest version of Linux Mint x64. This is an improved
version of Ubuntu. jLog may or may not support other versions...
- jLog V 5.0 and earlier: Unless already installed, please install the Java Runtime
Environment and the RXTX
serial communications package before installing the jLog
jLog V 5.1 and newer: Unless already installed, please install the Java Runtime
Please note that RXTX has been replaced by the built-in PureJavaComm and RXTX must be removed from the Java version to be used by jLog.
- Log in as the preferred user and download the
installer program that corresponds to the selected
version of jLog.
- For jLog V 5.x (and assuming Linux Mint 14, Ubuntu 12.10 (or similar):
Download the installer.jar file. make sure that the 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 installation by double-clicking the installer file and use the
default values unless you are very confident with Linux.
Start using the jLog application under Linux Mint via Start->Other->jLog. You may also right-click jLog and pin it to the Start Menu or Taskbar.
For jLog V 4.x (or generally):
Make sure that the logged in user can
reach the Java (JRE) previously installed by opening a
Terminal window ("shell") and typing:
$ echo $PATH
Inspect the output. If Java is not found in the
PATH, please enter (assuming that the Java JRE was
placed in: '/usr/java/', substitute if different):
$ echo $PATH
Please verify that Java is found in the PATH by
re-entering 'echo $PATH'
After this or in case the previous attempt was unsuccessful, start
the installation by typing:
$ cd <the directory where you placed
$ sh ./install.bin or for jLog V 5: $ java -jar installer.jar
- To increase log capacity beyond 25000 - 30000 entries
per file, you must change the Java VM properties.
- Note that the default UTF-8 environment in
SuSE V 9+ must be changed to e.g. ISO-8859-1.
