The compiled software can be downloaded from Download page. As the software is written in Java, the compiled code runs on most platforms. The software consists of a single jar file opendino.jar.
Start OpenDino by either:
- double clicking on the jar (this is simple, however, not activated on all platforms and console output may not be seen).
- open a Linux shell or Windows Command Line and enter one of the following two command in the same directory as file opendino.jar was downloaded (Windows often requires the latter command).
$ java -jar opendino.jar
$ java -classpath opendino.jar org.opendino.core.OpenDino
- to see additional command line options enter
$ java -jar opendino.jar -help
Writing a Shell Script
The script assumes an OpenDino archive file opendino.jar.
For Windows, create a file opendino.bat with the following content:
java -cp opendino.jar org/opendino/core/OpenDino %*
To use the batch file also from different directories, use the absolute path, e.g.:
java -cp C:\Programs\opendino.jar org/opendino/core/OpenDino %*
Now you can also double click project files (*.opl). When Windows ask for the program/app to open this file, choose the batch file written above.
For Linux, create a file opendino.sh with the following content:
#!/bin/sh java -classpath opendino.jar org.opendino.core.OpenDino $*
To make the file executable enter in the shell:
chmod u+x opendino.sh
