  • 1.  Pentaho Community Edition - can not run

    Posted 10-19-2023 02:57

    Dear Community members!

    I downloaded, I believe last PDI (pdi-ce-9.4.0.0-343) and can not initiate Spoon.bat file.

    For additional information: I tried all possible ways provided on internet (creating environment variables, copying Java to PDI folder and so on) and of no success.

    A few of my colleagues from IT backend also did not succeed, only saying that workarounds worked in the beginning of the year.

    But in principle, why is this so messy for open-source edition?

    Regards,

    I have a similar issue (pentaho-server-ce-9.4.0.0-343) on Linux (Ubuntu). I am not able to locate ./spoon.sh anywhere in the installed folder (/usr/local/pentaho-server/).  What I am able to locate is start-pentaho.sh however when I try to run it, it doesn't start. I get start-pentaho.sh: command not found ... I am lost

    yes, but why there is no documentation/ guidance from Pentaho how to install/run/troubleshoot Community Edition? Only workaround videos which possibly worked for someone, but is not procedure provided by Pentaho?

    Thanks @
    I have installed PDI now. I have scanned the web for different sources to resolve multiple roadblocks so far. However, I am at a standstill now. When I run the $ sudo  ./spoon.sh I am getting the error below. I have done everything I can find online about this error without success.

    ubuntu@ip-#########:/opt/data-integration$ sudo ./spoon.sh
    Authorization required, but no authorization protocol specified

    I found a possible solution https://stackoverflow.com/questions/42800117/error-org-eclipse-swt-swterror-no-more-handles-gtk-init-check-failed-on-cen and followed the step, however, I am still getting the error message above.

    I need help.

    IMHO problem is call via sudo. Root may not have access to X server. Run spoon.sh under standard user ubuntu.

    Agree with each response from @ (server versus, client tools, root versus ubuntu).  The path above is likley inherited from JAVA_HOME, but you can override with PENTAHO_JAVA_HOME to make sure it find the right version.  You likely tried this in prior debugging under root and not ubuntu, or installed Java under root and not all users have access.

    Linux is a nested set of synbolic links to allow easier version updates.  Check your environment for JAVA_HOME and PENTAHO_JAVA_HOME, the latter is only needed if the two versions are not the same or you want to skip past all the links.  Make sure all the links are valid and available to ubuntu.
    Double check that java is really there with 'java -version'.
