java.awt.AWTException: java.awt.Robot requires your X server

Hi,


I installed instantjchem 2.2.1 on my LINUX machine:


Config is:


Product Version = Instant JChem 2.2.1


Operating System = Linux version 2.6.11.4-21.11-default running on i386


Java; VM; Vendor = 1.6.0_02; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 1.6.0_02-b05; Sun Microsystems Inc.


Java Home = /opt/instantjchem/jre


System Locale; Encoding = de_DE (instantjchem); UTF-8


Home Directory = /root


Current Directory = /opt/instantjchem/bin


User Directory = /root/.instantjchem/ijc_2_2


Installation = /opt/instantjchem/instantjchem


/opt/instantjchem/ide8


/opt/instantjchem/platform7


After nearly every action I do within the application I get the above mentioned error:





java.awt.AWTException: java.awt.Robot requires your X server support the XTEST extension version 2.2





After that I added "option" XTEST" "ENABLE" in my xorg.conf, restarted the X-server but nothing changed.





Any idea??

Not much of an idea really. Can you provide a full stack trace of the error.





It would seem to be a problem with the XServer configuration. But you seem to have enabled XTEST, The error message state that it needs version 2.2 of XTEST. Are you using this version?


What variant and version of Linux are you running?

Have a look at this:


http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=6329226





Syntax suggested there is:


enable XTEST(X11R6)

Hi Tim,


thanks for the rapid answer!


This is the whole stuff that comes out when I start instantjchem, open a project and try to view a database in grid view (The version of the operating system is quoted again at the top tof the post):

The XTEST issue:





I'm not so involved with X. I simply added the line "XTEST" "ENABLE" into my xorg.conf without checking what version of XTEST I have (if any!). To me it looks like a seldom used option in a production environment (for debugging purposes only - a comment in xorg.conf).


Am I really the only one having this problem? - sounds strange!





Thanks again for your time.

Hi Tim,


thanks for that (interstingly this seems to be the only bit of information on the subject - at least based on google searches).





I tried (in xorg.conf):
Code:
Section "Extensions"


    Option     "XTEST(X11R6)" "Enable" #  Mostly a debugging tool


EndSection






which reflects the file structure better than the suggestion given above, but did'nt help!





Now I'm really kind of helpless .... :-((

We are looking to see whether we can remove use of the java.awt.Robot class in IJC (that is where the problems are coming from), Currently we're not sure whether this is possible.





But in the meantime I'm not sure what can be done to solve this. It looks like your X Server does not have the XTEST component, or its not loading, or its too old a version. Maybe you can ask on some X Windows forum, or ask on the forums for your particualr flavour of Linux.


What flavour of Linux is it anyway? Linux version 2.6.11.4-21.11-default only tells us about the kernel version, not the Linux distribution (Red Hat, Ubuntu....).

Hi Tim,


oh sorry. It is Suse Linux 9.3. At the time I update the system and try to look what the hell this XTEST stuff is at all - and where to get it. Not very much to learn about in the web?!





Again thank you very much - by the way: JChem is great stuff!!


I try to implement it as part of my WebPage which works with chemical structures for educational purposes. Hope I can manage this!
