I have been attempting to follow the instructions at [www.reprap.org] to install the software. It hasn't been working. I was unable to find the RXTX software due to the server being down. I later found another link here in the forum and used that. It went in well.

When I attempted to run the software after installation using "./reprap-host.sh" I get the following output:

I'm not sure if I did something wrong. I have only a fair amount of experience in Linux. I'm using Ubuntu 6.06 LTS the Dapper Drake. I've used this version for quite some time and have no problems with it. I get around quite nicely in it, in fact. I'm fairly certain I followed the instructions correctly--for instance, I verified where my JRE directory was so as to be sure I got things into the right places.

Please help me. I don't know what the problem is.

it appears you dont have the full java3d install. try putting this file in your jre lib dir: (jre/lib/ext i think...)

Thanks, fixed the problem.
