The thing with JWF fractals is they also have scripts installed and you may install others. I already had the background and then ran the spiral and heart scripts. Thus giving it the heart shape. The 'Earth Heart'
The flower one I found something I liked in mutagen and ran 3D on it. I don't think it is a script but one of the settings. After pressing a setting you need to render again and script 'run'
Someone had to work it out first and their name is mentioned and then put it into a script for users to use.
Kimba, rich has done an extremely good job at trying to explain. Please don't give up! You have an extremely talented mind and will be able to get a lot out of it.
If you are still having problems try the JWF forum at http://jwildfire.org/forum/index.php
You may get an answer there. Someone there surely should be able to help you get it working!

Thanks rich for the heads up on the latest version. And yes I run windows.

New day, our time-zones are diametrically opposite. ;)

Interesting message, I do not think putting the files in your Desktop folder is a good idea. AFAIK the jar file does not need to be executable. Guessing that you are clicking on it, in Windows fashion.

Knocked up a video on installation, this in a kubuntu VM, so everything a little cramped.

https://youtu.be/kgH74dnMPBA about 6 minutes

Out of interest, which linux distribution do you use? Obviously package managers, file managers differ. konsole = console = terminal = xterm depending on distro.

but...it might give some clues to get jwildfire working.

Thanks Rich2005, I am using Linux Mint 18. Yes I was double-clicking Windows fashion :oops: , I only use the terminal when I have to, I hate typing.

I have tried everything I know but I still can't get it working. It's a permissions problem but I have tried changing permissions and I still get the error message whether I use the terminal or not.

Hate to be beaten by a dumb computer ;)
I did a test installation in a Mint 18 Virtual machine. There should be no problems with jre and it looks like you have that installed already.

When it comes to starting j-wildfire-launcher.jar, do not right click and choose the start with java option. You must use the java syntax

java -jar j-wildfire-launcher.jar


Here is the video of the installation. https://youtu.be/-agtoAoUstM 7 minutes
Everything is included:
- Install JRE using the Mint Software Manager.
--- give java a check in a terminal
- Download the jwildfire zip
--- unzip with the Mint archive manager
--- make a jwildfire folder
--- copy the files over and check permissions
- First run of jwildfire in a terminal to check that it works.
- Make a desktop launcher for Jwildfire

ImageThank you, Rich2005, I got it working with your instructions. I don't understand Java as I have concentrated on Python.

It is shown at the end of that last video.

Briefly (at least in that cinnamon Mint18)
1. right click on the desktop and choose 'make a new launcher here'
2. browse for the j-wildfire-launcher.jar file so you get the whole path maybe home/kimba/somefolder/j-wildfire-launcher.jar
3. edit that to add the java -jar bit to the front
ok that.

Thanks Rich2005, I withdrew that last comment when I watched the video. I didn't realise you would see it so soon.
