    Hi,

    I'm trying to run MeV on Ubuntu 12.10 and encountering an error that is far outside of my expertise (log pasted at the end of the email). I tried searching your 'Help' section and found some threads about issues with Java 7, so I downgraded to 6, but that made no difference.

    I used to run MeV on earlier versions of Ubuntu, and both the installation and execution were trouble-free. I'd be really grateful for any help!

    Just solved the problem, I'm posting the answer in case someone else has the same issue. It was trivial in the end - javaws did not get installed automatically with java, I added it and MeV now runs.
