Requirements

  • Starting from Release 1.6.4043 an Oracle Java or OpenJDK Runtime Environment 1.7 or later is required.
  • Starting from Release 1.9 an Oracle Java or OpenJDK Runtime Environment 1.8 or later is required.

Installation

  • Extract the downloaded archive jade_client_linux.x.x.x.tar.gz respective jade_client_windows.x.x.x.zip  to an arbitrary directory, e.g. /tmp/ or C:\Temp\ and run the installer dialog for YADE Client using

    Linux command to open the installer GUI with root permissions
    /tmp/jade_client.x.x.x/setup.sh
    Windows command to open the installer GUI with root permissions
    C:\Temp\jade_client.x.x.x\setup.cmd
  • On Linux ...
    • The setup.sh calls sudo  to get root permissions. It is strongly recommended that you not logged in as root.
    • root permissions are not mandatory.
    • If you want to start the installer without root permissions then you can call it with the -u option.

      Linux command to open the installer GUI without root permissions
      /tmp/jade_client.x.x.x/setup.sh -u
  • On Windows the option -u fro an unprivileged installation is not available. The installer asks always for elevated administrator permissions.
  • Now the installer opens a GUI to enter the installation path.

 

  • You can start the installer without GUI, e.g. if no X-Server is installed on Linux.
  • In this case you have to edit the file jade_client_install.xml to configure the installation path in Line 22.

    or

    or
