    Hi,
    I use jre1.5.0_04 on Debian sid. Please, could you explain what you mean with "Make sure that the *.so files are on your java.libary.path or any other path that java may access." ?

    You're surely talking about this :
    libswt-atk-gtk-3212.so
    libswt-gnome-gtk-3212.so
    libswt-gtk-3212.so
    libswt-mozilla-gtk-3212.so
    libswt-pi-gtk-3212.so

    but in which directory I must copy them ?
    Cordially,

      Thank you very much, it's allright for me.

      Perhaps the help file should be more "easy level" to understand the installation, something like this :
      "For Linux user, by editing run.sh like a text file, make sure that the *.so files are on your java.libary.path or any other path that java may access. If your Runtime Java is for example in :
      /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java
      you should have something like this in your run.sh :
      /usr/java/jre1.5.0_04/bin/java -Xmx134217728 -Djava.library.path=. -jar rssowl.jar

      And don't forget to add this line in run.sh with the correct path :
      export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/whereis/mozilla/install/
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

      Rem : The expression "-Djava.library.path=." means that the *.so files are in the current directory of Rssowl.

      To launch rssowl in Debian GnuLinux, try "sh run.sh".

      Rssowl is a beautyful work,

      Yes, those are the files. Make sure you have -Djava.library.path set to the directory where these files are. For example, if it is in your /usr/lib, you would define it as -Djava.library.path=/usr/lib/, on the command where you invoke rssowl.jar. So you can copy the files to anywhere and just point to it while invoking rssowl. In case you installed it through an rpm, you might have to edit the /usr/bin/rssowl script to modify the definition.

      To run on Linux we need add at beginning of the script "run.sh" these lines:

      export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME="/whereis/mozilla/install/
      export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

        You can leave the *.so files in the same directory the rssowl.jar and run.sh script is in. That should work.
