Trouble installing Linux indexing application

Postby mazate » Sun Oct 09, 2011 3:45 pm

Hi there

I'm trying to install the linux indexing application on my computer. I'm running Ubuntu 11.04. I've done it before successfully so I know I'm doing it correctly. However, now I'm having trouble getting it to install.

Here's my problem:

I'm typing on the command line:
chmod +x Indexing_unix_3_10_5.sh
to make the script executable

Then I type:
./Indexing_unix_3_10_5.sh to execute the script
I then get this output:

Unpacking JRE ...
Preparing JRE ...
./Indexing_unix_3_10_5.sh: 346: bin/unpack200: not found
Error unpacking jar files. The architecture or bitness (32/64)
of the bundled JVM might not match your machine.

I'm running the 64 bit version of Ubuntu if thats an issue. However, as I stated before I've installed it before on Ubuntu in this exact same method without problems. I had to reinstall Ubuntu is the issue.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

I made the test.

uname -a
Linux mariano-Aspire-5551 2.6.38-11-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Mon Sep 12 21:17:25 UTC 2011 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Download the file.
Start installation without changing permissions.

bash Indexing*.sh

The installation shows some warning and the error message saying that it was not able to put an icon into my desktop.
At the end of installation I agree to run Indexing.
It shows me some (maybe five or six) error windows.
I closed its all and insert my account and.. I was in.
Starting again Indexing through Unity menu and all went well without error.

Thanks for the reply. I still got the same error that I got when I did it.

As you can see from output of "uname -a" command, I have a 64 bit machine running Ubuntu 11.04 and it work fine.
So isn't a matter of Ubuntu 64 bit version.

I found the solution! The solution was on http://forums.visual-paradigm.com/posts/list/2501.html, they had a similar problem.

To fix this I just put this into the terminal:

Code: Select all

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

I am having a similar problem. I did exactly what mariano describes here:

The installation shows some warning and the error message saying that it was not able to put an icon into my desktop.
At the end of installation I agree to run Indexing.
It shows me some (maybe five or six) error windows.
I closed its all and insert my account and.. I was in.
Starting again Indexing through Unity menu and all went well without error.


Except that after I put in my account information, the Indexing window came up, but only the top menu (i.e., File, etc.) loaded, not the content of the window.

Any ideas as to what's going on?

Can you see a small window indicating that FSI is loading?

The nfarley88 instructions from Tue Nov 01, 2011 4:47 am worked for me.
(Ubuntu Workstation 12.04.2 AMD64)
The ia32-libs install a set of 32bits libraries for some softwares compatibility on a 64 bits system.

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs

After that, works ok for me.

The ia32-libs option doesn't appear to exist anymore on Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit. The only two work-arounds I've found are to install a bunch of libraries as suggested by Matthew O. Smith, or to use a working JRE, like the Oracle Java 7 JDK I have installed.

I can appreciate the advantages of bundling the JRE with the installer, especially on platforms where the libraries are more stable, but perhaps on Linux, and especially 64 bit, the installer could give the option to use an existing JRE or you could provide a 64 bit installer.

I've got the full overly verbose write-up online. All attempts to put the simplified instructions here end up with a "website temporarily down" response.

If anybody wanted to know what's up with ia32-libs the removal information can be found here
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MultiarchSpec

Basically you'll need to be specifying libraries more directly instead of installing a giant umbrella. This is good because if you only needed one 32bit lib you don't need to install 550MB of stuff.
