This is how I was able to install the oracle jdk8 on Pop!_os (since the oracle java ppa is no longer available due to license changes) but should work on most up to date distro's out there.
Finally, a usable set of instructions that work! You are a saint. :banana:
I am using these instructions with the Steam version of ESO on Linux Mint, and it is working perfectly.
For those that are doing the same, and have no idea where to find the AddOns folder, it is buried in a somewhat weird place. Try turning on "Show hidden files" and look for someplace like this:
~/.steam/steam/steamapps/compatdata/306130/pfx/drive_c/users/steamuser/My Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/AddOns
See you in Tamriel!
This is a guide by VERNSTOKED to install Minion with Lutris
I followed the instructions here, but I am getting an error at running java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
Major opcode of failed request: 151 (GLX)
Minor opcode of failed request: 24 (X_GLXCreateNewContext)
Value in failed request: 0x0
Serial number of failed request: 29
Current serial number in output stream: 30
I verified that java is the right version, and tried 8u212 as well
Simple reboot fixed this
For anyone finding this post later the issue was that Manjaro/arch uses openJDK, and using:
"archlinux-java set <JRE version>"
fixes the issue, but will error out until after a reboot
Feel free to remove this post if you want since this is a sticky.
You don't need JRE/JDK from Oracle speicifically, OpenJDK has no difference (but freer license).
Though not all distros provide OpenJFX 8. For Ubuntu-based a possible solution is outlined here: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...x/+bug/1799946
To run on JDK+JFX 11 Minion will need be converted to modules, it seems. At least that the error I got from trying to launch it in this setup.
Instead of changing the default JDK as calvin.scones suggests, one may simply run
Just found this thread. I will add my two cents. :-D
I run minion from the command line. What I ended up doing a year and half ago was installed Oracle version 9.0.4 of java as the open source version did not work graphics wise. It did ran, but the UI was all messed up.
My OS is gentoo and CPU is currently Threadripper.
I installed Oracle java using the guild from the wiki: https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Java
I su to the steam user. I use a different user from the main to keep things seperate as games have a bad habit of doing things the users does not want. So running a seperate user is recommended on Linux systems.
Manually download the .jar and place in ".wine_Tamriel/drive_c/users/steam/Local Settings/Application Data/Minion/app/" Note on my sytem, I installed it using the .exe and hence why the full path to the normal install. It was later I found the GUI bugs.
I did not set the system wide java as I wanted the default java to be not oracle, so my command line is:
I have been running minion like that for over year with only one issue, you must update from the first window, using the update button from sub-windows will not work. Example is clicking on the addon and reading the change log and updateing from there does not work.
Update: Gentoo removed oracle bin version 9.0.4 for security issues. So one may have to manually install version 9.04. Will be testing other versions.
Tested oracle version 184.108.40.206: works
Tested icedtea version 3.13.0: failed with "Error: Could not find or load main class gg.minion.Minion"
Tested openjdk version 11.0.4: failed with "Error: Could not find or load main class gg.minion.Minion
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application"
Update 3: I revisited this issue and found out the root cause of the error was missing openjfx from openjdk. Search for and install the openjfx package for the distro. For gentoo system, enable and openjfx USE flag and re-emerge openjdk. Got past the error but gets stuck at init. Can get to settings and so on, but the black popup will not go away. Can close the program normally.
The issue I run into with the JAR version is as follows:
I have attempted a few different java versions. I am not entirely sure where the error is, but that looks like a unit testing framework which suggests it is an issue with the JAR file itself. I can post the whole stack if needed.
For reference here is the output from java -version after the bash scripts were used on the originally suggested oracle file.
java version "1.8.0_221"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_221-b11)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.221-b11, mixed mode)
Seems the class it.sauronsoftware.junique.AlreadyLockedException is missing in the jar file, or a jar dependency is missing in the classpath entry of the jar's manifest.
Weird it is working for some and not for others.
Maybe they have the same class somewhere else in there environment variables and you could download it somewhere and add it as well to yours, so it's "globally" known for all jar files?
Sounds more like you are either missing the lib folder accompanying the Minion-jfx.jar or it is not found on the classpath for some reason. You could try to specify it manually like so:
My face is a little red at the moment. I somehow managed to extract only the JAR file and missed the lib folder. Works like a charm as soon as I have the dependencies...
I m running Minion from Lutris as I got the java error and didn't want to dig too long.
But I tilted on :
But addons are not listed after I pointed to the addOns dir. :(
Getting a lot of :
Minion got some settings at the top right UI corner where you can change the addon directory scan depth. Sometimes increasing this helps.
I can not speak for Unix, only for the Windows versions:
-Use 32bit version even on 64bit OS
-Start as admin to give it access to the user directory
-Allow the minion directory and elder scrolls online directory access (whitelist/exclusion list) in Antivirus/Firewalls
Maybe this helps you for Unix as wlel somehow :confused:
You could also try to stop minion, rename/delete the Minion.xml file!
Then go to your AddOns directory. Remove all addons (move them elsewhere).
Start minion, point to the addon dir.
Download a few addons new.
Move/Copy the other addons into the AddOns directory again but do not overwrite any files.
Start minion again and check if it scans and updates properly now.
I recently changed the depth, lowering it. But I tried raising with theses values:
- Concurrent downloads: 4
- Game Scan Depth: 3
Still getting the issue. I can't find "more addon" to download and install a new addon.
I would like to highlight an issue in your list.
Instead running as admin, you have to set the proper ACL.
Even largely permissive ACL still better than giving root access to an app.
Okay, thanks. As I said the admin info was for a Windows system :p
Managed to run Minion on OpenJDK 14 with
Why doesn't this work?
/usr/java/jre1.8.0_271/bin/java -jar "/home/lizzias/Downloads/Minion3.0.5-java/Minion-jfx.jar"
download java 8 from here:
easy install follow these instructions:
Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type:
For example, to install the software in the /usr/java/ directory, Type:
Move the .tar.gz archive binary to the current directory.
Unpack the tarball and install Java
tar zxvf jre-8u73-linux-x64.tar.gz
The Java files are installed in a directory called jre1.8.0_73 in the current directory. In this example, it is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.8.0_73 directory. When the installation has completed, you will see the word Done.
Delete the .tar.gz file if you want to save disk space.
Readme = first post by Dolby (which you have quoted already). What is missing?
Additional info = other posts, like other Linux versions, Steam, etc.
What am I missing here?
Okay so ive been following instructions on installing java and what not, currently running the most up to date version of java
openjdk version "1.8.0_292"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_292-8u292-b10-0ubuntu1~20.10-b10)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.292-b10, mixed mode)
now when I try and run java -jar Minion-jfx.jar it gives me the following error
Error: Could not find or load main class gg.minion.Minion
I read another post, but the individual was running a version of java not supported. So that would make sense, but I am running the version i thought was compatible with Minion 3.0.5.
I am currently updating ESO so I can't do a system restart just yet to see if that may fix the issue. But I will try a reboot after its completed.
Others having a similar issue had either a corrupt download of the jar containing file, or at least missing subfolders of that downloaded file (like the libs folder).
Try to validate it's the full file and you have extracted all properly.
