Graphics don't display on Linux

Hi !
Just starting with RapidMiner. Can't get any graphic displayed as shown in the tutorial. Blank space in the middle area, when the tutorial is showing nice bar charts...
I have tried several (3) recent flavors of Ubuntu on different machines. Same result.
Note that everytime, I had to remove Java 11 to Java 8 to get things starting...

Any suggestion ???

    Hi,
    can you check the log for error messages?

    One common issue maybe that your linux does not have fxbrowser installed. Can you check this please?

    Hi,

    Are you using a KDE desktop?

    Hi Martin & Marco,

    Thanx for your prompt replies :
     - Martin : I think you mean jxbrowser since I can't find anything on fxbrowser... ?
       Note thatt I have Firefox and Chromium installed
     - Marco : I tried on standard Ubuntu 18.10 and 19.10, Gnome 3 and XFCE, as well as Ubuntu Mate 19.10 (Gnome 2 I think).

    All with same frustrating result...

    Hi,

    What is the error you get in the shell when you start Studio? There should be something about "Async: Hardware accelerated browser setup test" in there. Most likely followed by an error.

    Hi again,

    Upon startup :

    In the log file, I get one single warning :
    WARNING: Plugin initializer com.rapidminer.extension.cloud.connectivity.PluginInitCloudConnectivity.initGui of Plugin Cloud Connectivity caused an error: null 
    then a bunch of java related explanations.

    On the GUI, I get a message "Incompatible extension during startup" Cloud Connectivity Version 9.5.0

    If I ignore the message, then the prgram starts normally.

    Thank you

    Eric

    Hi again and again...

    1/ Made a complete new fresh installation of Ubuntu 19.10, with all latest updates. Nothing else
    2/ Installed JRE 8 :
         openjdk version "1.8.0_232"
         OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_232-8u232-b09-0ubuntu1.1-b09)
         OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.232-b09, mixed mode)
    3/ Setup ClassPath :
    source /etc/environment => echo $JAVA_HOME => /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin/
    4/ Installed RapidMiner fresh

    Still same situation ... :'( RapidMiner starts, but no graphics ...

    Same warning as before in the log.

    Desperation starting to raise ...

    Hi,

    Ubuntu 18+ has a problem with the current version and the Chromium browser, we are aware of that. Though so far it was related to KDE desktop, but others may be affected as well. That particular issue should be fixed by the upcoming RapidMiner 9.6 release (early Feb).
    But just to confirm it is actually said problem, would you mind uploading the entire rapidminer-studio.log from your HOME/.RapidMiner folder?

    Regards,
    Marco

    thanks @Marco_Boeck and @mschmitz. Are there any workarounds until 9.6 is released? Maybe @BalazsBarany has a clever idea? :wink:

    Hi,

    for me the Amazon Corretto JVM 8 (Amazon distribution of OpenJDK) works best.
    https://docs.aws.amazon.com/corretto/latest/corretto-8-ug/downloads-list.html

    I don't have any problems with charts or graphics on my Kubuntu machine.

    Regards,
    Balázs

    Hi all,

    This is enough testing from my side. If it can be of more help, see attached log file.
    I will be happy to try new release when it comes up.
    Thanx and regards to all
