Seems like your system does not like install4j, the Java installer application we use.

As a workaround, you can "install" yEd manually.

  1. Install the latest official Oracle Java (7u21 at the time of this writing). Oracle Java is available here. It suffices to install the JRE (Java Runtime Environment), you only need the larger JDK (Java Development Kit) if you want to program in Java.
  2. Download the generic Java yEd zip archive from the yWorks download site and extract the archive to a directory of your choice.

That is all there is to installing yEd.


You can run yEd with

java -Xmx512m -jar /path/to/yed-3.10.2/yed.jar
