after cleaning up my JDKs on OSX (I found 3 of them installed in parallel — Apple, Sun & Oracle) the Jitsi app does not start any more and tells me:
kinnlaBook:MacOS till$ ./Jitsi
No Java runtime present, requesting install.
However, my Java seems properly installed:
kinnlaBook:MacOS till$ echo $JAVA_HOME
kinnlaBook:MacOS till$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_51"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_51-b13)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.51-b03, mixed mode)
How to tell Jitsi the new Java Home?
I am worried about the user experience — uninstalling jitsi (moving the app to the recycling bin) and reinstalling it didn't help. What helped me was getting the master branch from github and running it with ant
So maybe the java-detection could be made more robust? I assume that would mean an update of “launcher.m”, which already looks pretty sophisticated to me.
