3.2.15 - Icon Family VASSAL not found

Postby jcbeckman » August 15th, 2015, 12:38 pm

No matter what module I try to open, I get the error

Icon Family VASSAL not found

I tried searching for a resolution to this and could only find a thread about 3.2.2. I couldn't find anything in there to help me.

I have removed all version of Java except 1.8; I have downloaded the most recent version of Java 1.8 and VASSAL. I also downloaded a new module in case one of my old ones was at fault.

System info:

Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro5,1
Processor Name: 6-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 3.33 GHz
Number of Processors: 1
Total Number of Cores: 6
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 12 MB
Memory: 16 GB
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB

VASSAL version 3.2.15

Java version 1.8.0_51

Module - Combat Commander Europe 2.3 (but this problem happens with ALL modules)

This has not worked for me for quite some time (since before 3.x I think).

Error log:

Re: 3.2.15 - Icon Family VASSAL not found

This:

2015-08-15 08:19:06,343 [1-IconFactory-preload] INFO VASSAL.tools.icon.IconFactory - VASSAL images folder found at file:/Library/Java/Extensions/Help/images/


is very strange. This is what I get on a windoze system:

2015-08-18 21:29:48,359 [1-IconFactory-preload] INFO VASSAL.tools.icon.IconFactory - VASSAL images folder found at jar:file:/C:/Program%20Files/VASSAL-3.2.15/lib/Vengine.jar!/images/


The VASSAL images file is being found inside the Vassal Jar file, not a folder on you file system.

Is anyone else using MacOS 10.10.5 and Java 1.8? I have no way of debugging this unfortunately.

Rgds,
Brent.

I have this happening on two different systems. This also occurred on 10.10.3 and 10.10.4 with java 1.7. I do know someone successfully running VASSAL on 10.10.4; I don't know if he's on Java 1.7 or 1.8, but I know it's working OK for him.

What is it that tells VASSAL where the folder is?

Re: 3.2.15 - Icon Family VASSAL not found

Postby jcbeckman » August 23rd, 2015, 11:36 am

I also had to re-install Java 1.6 for another program, and VASSAL fails the same exact way when using 1.6. I also had 1.6 installed when I was on 10.10.3 and 10.10.4. So it's not unique to 1.6, 1.7 or 1.8, or to 10.10.5.

I have never seen this issue on my Macs--neither with Java 6 nor with Java 8. I'm currently on OS 10.10.5 on my Macbook Air but have been through all minor versions of 10.10 without any problems.

what is it that tells VASSAL where the folder is?


In techspeak, Vassal is creating a Java class called JarArchive that should live in the Vassal Jar file, then asking the ClassLoader what URL it was loaded from and adding /images to it. For some reason, your OS is returning 'file:/Library/Java/Extensions/Help' as the base URL.

Can you try an experiment. Go to the folder file:/Library/Java/Extensions/Help and change the name of images folder to images.keep, then try starting Vassal and see what happens.

Regards,
Brent.

Thanks Brent. I am a programmer but it's been quite some time since I looked at any Java.

Renaming the folder did work. I was able to open two different mod files with no issues. So the question now is how to do this without having to rename?

I also confirmed that switching the folder name back causes the problem again.

What is in that folder?

This sounds like it might be a classpath issue. Is file:/Library/Java/Extensions/Help in your classpath?

It contains some gif from 2005 - not sure what put them there.

echo $CLASSPATH returns:

.:/Users/jbeckman/C259/Myclasses

which is from my Java class many years ago, where I put my homework.

Whatever did it was installed on both my main desktop and laptop though, as both have the same problem. An older MacMini I tried last night does not have an issue.

Something has installed a Java Extension that seems to be interfering with running Vassal.

Are you able to run a small Java program? (See below).


Code: Select all
public class ShowProperties {
 
  public static void main(String[] args) {
      String [] properties = {
          "java.ext.dirs",
          "java.home",
          "path.separator",
          "file.separator",
          "java.library.path",
          "os.arch",
          "sun.boot.class.path"
      };
      for (int i = 0; i < properties.length; i++) {
          String key = properties[i];
          System.out.println(key + ": " + System.getProperty(key));
      }
  }
}

You'll have to tell me how. Compiling it works but it won't run, complaining of no main class.

"Error: Could not find or load main class .Users.jbeckman.src.ShowProperties.class"

Figured it out - needed to cd to the directory (d'oh!).

Output is showing weird here on the board so I am attaching as a file.

Remember, I have both 1.8 and 1.6; because of the shell script in the package it looks like 1.6 is preferred, but running from the command line is going to give me 1.8. Still, it failed the exact same way in 1.6 or 1.8 so maybe this output is still worthwhile.

Ok,
That's sort of what I expected. It confirms that /Library/Java/Extensions is defined in your list of locations for Java Extensions. Why this should interfere with Vassal I am not exactly sure.

What is in the /Library/Java/Extensions/Help folder?

Short of identifying and uninstalling whatever extension is causing the problem, I suspect the workaround is to change the command line used to invoke Vassal to override the java.ext.dirs property to stop it looking in /Library/Java/Extensions

Regards,
Brent.
