Fire.app for Porteus 3.1

Post#1 by Arif » 16 Oct 2016, 17:00

Can someone please turn Fire.app into a Porteus module? As a front end dev, this would be of huge help. I'm running 32 bit Porteus 3.1 XFCE. Thanks!

1) Download the fire.app zip file
2) Unzip it and change into the directory
3) Download jdk using USM.

Code: Select all

usm -u all
usm -g jdk nodeps
4) Add the jre path

Code: Select all

export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib/java/jre/bin
5) Start the app: ./run.sh

When I run

Code: Select all

usm -g jdk nodeps
in the terminal I get the "Nothing found for: jdk" error. When I search for "jdk" in USM I only get "openjdk" in the results. Is that the one?

jdk is the oracle package and openjdk is the open source equivalent..so it should work..
even so jdk should show up, maybe your USM needs to be updated..
in the GUI under updates>update usm
then update the databases..

failing that heres a direct link:
https://packages.slackonly.com/pub/pack ... _slack.txz
make a module from that with txz2xzm (in the rightclick menu of your filemanager)
