[SOLVED] URSim running issue after a clean installation

Hello,

I’m having an issue running the URSim (both 3.4.1 and 3.3.3) on my clean Ubuntu 17.04 where I installed the sdk-1.1.0-76, idk 1.8 and Maven 3.3.9 (no Starter package). I updated both the install.sh (SDK and URSim) files with the tips listed on this forum. I had no problems installing the SDK and also building the HelloWorld and MyDaemon examples.
After running ./install.sh I got the three desktop icons for the ursim, but when calling ./start-ursim.sh the program stops at 100% and on terminal I get this log:

Sometimes also looks that the Controller cannot starts or crashes immediately. Is something related to Java framework or I made something wrong?

I will add more details for a better understanding.

Hi @recognitionrobotics,
I had similar problems running in Ubuntu 16.04. I suggest you to try the software in Ubuntu 14.04, it works fine there.

Need Java 1.6 to run Polyscope… which is not so straightforward to install in recent releases as it’s been removed from standard repositories.

You can run the simulator on 1.7 and 1.8 after you install it properly by configuring java, but the real robots have Java 1.6 installed by default, so I wouldn’t recommend it.

ah ok I didn’t get that far, just reverted to 1.6 :slight_smile:

Thank you @jubeira. This works now, with 14.04, and I’m also using Java 1.7 (@ajp) without any issues.

The only thing is that, running mvn install it works, but running mvn install -P ursim for the deploy in the same VM I get some errors. I’ll take you updated.

In case anyone comes back to trying to install URSim under Ubuntu 16.04, it’s possible if you change this line in the install.sh file:

commonDependencies='libcurl3 openjdk-6-jre libjava3d-* ttf-dejavu* fonts-ipafont fonts-baekmuk fonts-nanum fonts-arphic-uming fonts-arphic-ukai'

Change openjdk-6-jre to openjdk-8-jre to prompt it to install 1.8 instead of trying to find 1.6 which doesn’t exist in the repositories.

Thank you @ajp, I tested today with Ubuntu 16.04, it works correctly.

Thank’s for this advice :slight_smile: I use Linux Mint 18 (based on Ubuntu 16.04). I’ve changed ‘openjdk-6-jre’ to ‘openjdk-8-jre’, have run installation (’./install.sh’) and it went through, but there were some problems with dependencies at the end. After running ‘./start-ursim.sh’ program starts and everything looks good, but should I worry about this dependencies errors while installation?
Where can I find ‘ursim-5.x.x’?

The result of installation:

I would guess this won’t cause a problem, looks like it’s trying to install the xmlrpc packages that have already been installed by the SDK urtool, and can’t handle that nicely for some reason…

You could try out one of the xmlrpc samples to see if it works:

I have tried this xmlrpc example and it works :slight_smile: Thanks for your help :slight_smile:

If you need to run daemons, remember step 3 in this link [SOLVED] `DaemonContribution::start()` always ends in `ERROR` Install URsim PolyScope 3.3.3.292 on Ubuntu 16.04

It also works for PolyScope 3.4 and 3.5
