Hi All,

I am trying to create a Linux installer and the installer will contain some text fields and buttons (using java custom code panel). I am using "Xming-6-9-0-31-setup.exe" and "putty" for X11 GUI. When i execute the "install.bin" from the putty session i can able to see the GUI dialogue but the text fields in the dialogue are non editable. Please help me how can i get the correct output.

Thanks in Advance

Which JRE are you using?
For 1.7, you need at least the 7u40.

Hi Jerome,

Thanks for your quick response, and i am using windows box to build the installer and executing installer in linux. So, my jre versions are

Windows - "1.8.0_05"

Linux - "1.6.0_20"

Can you please point me which vm should i use.

If you're not using embeded JRE with your installer, then you need "1.7.0_40" installed on your Linux.

I do not know if the problem is fixed in JRE1.6 but you can check by following links I posted above
