Fellow CafeTran user Hans vd B is currently testing CafeTran on Ubuntu (running in a VM). He asked me to post this nice screen shot and promises to send his impressions quite soonicon_wink.gif.

Looks great Oct 8, 2012

Will definitely try this out on my Ubuntu system!

Does the TM work well? Any issues with compatibility with other systems?

Please do, Michael!

It works very well on OS X, which might be clue that it'll work on Ubuntu too. You'll have to do some tests yourself, I'm afraid.

I think you'll like CafeTran very much. Just today Igor created a very nice bonus that hopefully will make it into the october buildicon_smile.gif.

Good luck,

Hans

32 or 64 bit? Oct 9, 2012

Is your system 32 or 64 bit? Wordfast Pro is reported to have problems with 64-bit Linux distros (well, with 64-bit JRE actually), while it’s fine with 32 bit.

I'm afraid I'm completely new to Linux. It looks like I'm running 64-bit:

but I don't know how to check which JRE is running in Ubuntu. Please help me out. What problems do you have with 64-bit JRE, and can I try to (not) reproduce them?

Cheers,

Hans v1.0

You can check this probably via the terminal/shell. Just have to type in the right command.

Ubuntu and Java Oct 9, 2012

Dear Hans,

Open Terminal.

For checking the installed Java packages:

java -version

For setting the default Java package:

update-alternatives --config java

Regards,

Gyula

Thank you, Gyula. However, I have no idea if I should change the settings…

Cheers,

64-bit system definitely Oct 10, 2012

Yes, your screenshot says, your Ubuntu build is 64-bit, however…

but I don't know how to check which JRE is running in Ubuntu.


As already advised, you should use java -version, and if the JRE is 64-bit, it will explicitly say so (normally). To make sure, run:

Code:
java -d64



If you get an output like this:

Code:
This Java instance does not support a 64-bit JVM.
Please install the desired version.



then your JRE is 32-bit.

What problems do you have with 64-bit JRE, and can I try to (not) reproduce them?


I don’t actually, because I have a 32-bit version of openSUSE 11.4 and, respectively, a 32-bit system-wide JRE. I’ve just seen some repeated complaints in the Wordfast Pro mail list about WFP not running in a 64-bit system with a 32-bit JRE. They were advised to get a 32-bit JRE to run WFP.

I have no idea if I should change the settings…


Better not. Your output says, you have Java 6 (default in the system) and Java 7. So far, better stick to Java 6.

And that's what I got.

There was a problem with CT on 64-bit OS X as well, but that was related to Open/Libre/NeoOffice. You could either "connect" to OOo and enjoy the spellchecker (32-bit), or forget about OOo and spelling and increase the RAM assigned to JRE (64-bit). CT didn't run if you set Java to 64-bit and connected to OOo. This problem is non-existing for Linux, since OOo suites are or can be 64-bit, and for Windows and OS X it's still 32-bit only. Now CT uses Hunspell, and the problems are over.

Thanks,

Hans
