    I am not able to start AMARES as a “normal” user on our Ubuntu 14.04 machine.
    I get the error:
    clicked on 999999mrui.quantitation.amares.view.Amares
    Exception in thread “AWT-EventQueue-0” java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: Expecting an absolute path of the library: ?/.eMrui/native/libamaresQuantitation.so

    It seems that jMRUI has problems to identify the correct username and/or path. Because as “root” I do not have any problems and this questionmark in the path becomes a ‘/root/.eMrui..’.

    Anyone has a solution or maybe a workaround?
    Thanks in advance

    Dear Markus,

    Probably some libraries are missing. Probably it’s libg2c0.

    On ubuntu I recommend this:

    Add the following lines to /etc/apt/sources.list

    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20070730T000000Z/ lenny main
    deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian/20070730T000000Z/ lenny main
    deb http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20070730T000000Z/ lenny/updates main
    deb-src http://snapshot.debian.org/archive/debian-security/20070730T000000Z/ lenny/updates main

    and install by sudo apt-get install libg2c0_3.4…….

    Tell me if it helped.

    Dear Michal,

    I installed libg2c0 in version 3.4 but without any change.
    I can open files.. change things and so on.. but as soon as I try to open AMARES or anything else which you can find in the ‘.eMrui/natives’ folder I get this error message.
    Maybe it helps: Same for jMRUI4 but NOT for version 3. In v3 everything works.

    Any other idea maybe?

    Do you have 32bit Java?
    Which jMRUI version are you running?

    Markus Sack

    Yes.. I’m using a 32bit java, JDK.

    I tried every jMRUI version from 3 to now 5.2 (so.. 3/4/5.2).
    We’re using jMRUI for quite a long time now. But since we changed our system to Ubuntu14.04 only jMRUI version 3 works properly.

    And as I said: What I don’t understand is that if I start jMRUI5 as root everything works.

    Thanks for your help.

    it seems to work in general..
    I created a new local user on our system and with this account I can start AMARES.
    So I guess I have to first talk to our IT department where the main difference between my and this account is.

    Thanks alot.
