Installation Instructions

General Remarks

Please install JMulTi to a directory without whitespaces (not c:/Program Files). This is caused by a limitation of the used Gauss Runtime Engine 5.0. When JMulTi needs to be installed in such a folder, then in the file jgrte/engine_config.xml the variable GRAPHICS_DIR should point to a directory with write permissions and without whitespaces in the name.

JMulTi is a Java program and needs a Java Runtime Engine (JRE) to run. Please make sure that you either download the package with the JRE included or that you install the JRE manually before installing JMulTi. The JRE can be downloaded from The minimum requirement is version 1.6 (JRE 6).

.zip File

The zip file has no automatic installation procedure. It just needs to be extracted. No icons are created. The program can then be started by clicking on jmulti.exe (or directly on jmulti.jar). The script jm.bat can also be used. It allows to adjust some settings and displays a console window. See the included README.txt for more information about available options.

.tgz Archive, Linux.

The tgz file has no automatic installation procedure. It just needs to be extracted. The program can then be started via the script jmrun.

Please note that the working directory must be the jmulti installation folder. In jmrun it is assumed that this is /usr/local/jmulti. If the software is installed to a different directory, jmrun must be adjusted.

Under Linux the GRTE uses ghostview to show the postscript graphics. For some distributions this is installed with the gv package. In case you encounter problems, create a symbolic link via

ln -s /usr/bin/gv /usr/bin/ghostview.

One might also choose a different postscript viewer for this link.

Ubuntu Linux

Here some hints to get JMulTi running on ubuntu Linux:

  • install "sun-java5-jre" package from "multiverse"-repository, see
  • remove older 1.4.x Java version if not needed, otherwise set default to Java 6 or adjust jmrun script accordingly
  • make executable if it is not
  • adjust ghostview link to evince, see above description
