Ubuntu 18.04 - doesn't even start.
I downloaded the minion java files, and put them in my home directory.
I thought I had java installed. My first set of errors were

sudo apt install default-jre
sudo apt install openjdk-11-jre-headless
sudo apt install openjdk-8-jre-headless

I installed all three. Now my error is

CLI#: java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
Error: Could not find or load main class gg.minion.Minion
Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javafx/application/Application

I'm an experienced user, but not with java. Suggestions are welcome.

Hi Barleduq,

I'll get a Ubuntu Desktop VM going again and see if I can get Minion working.

There is a thread over on our ESO site I posted when I got it running with Pop!_os which is Ubuntu based. Might have some helpful info.

I was able to get Minion running in Ubuntu 18 like this...
  1. Download jdk8 from oracle, you need an account but its free
    Download latest jkd-8u___-linux-x64.tar.gz into your Download directory ~/Downloads
  2. Open up terminal and...
  3. cd ~/Downloads
  4. wget
  5. chmod +x
  6. sudo ./ -f jdk-8u311-linux-x64.tar.gz
    Answer 'y' to all questions
  7. Verify we have jdk8 as default:
    java -version
    java version "1.8.0_311"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_311-b11)
    Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.311-b11, mixed mode)
  8. wget
  9. mkdir minion
  10. unzip -d minion
  11. cd minion
  12. java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
  13. Update Minion and it will quit. There is a bug where it will download the update into a sub directory named "null" inside the minion directory.
  14. cd null
  15. java -jar Minion-jfx.jar
