I am trying to use yEd on Ubuntu 14.04 (Unity). My java -version :
java version "1.8.0_45"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_45-b14)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.45-b02, mixed mode)
The installation goes well (following the same kind of instructions given here : http://sharadchhetri.com/2015/04/25/install-yed-graph-editor-on-ubuntu/ )
Then I launch yEd from the desktop but only the little "Welcome to yEd" window opens
And if I try to create a new diagram or open an already existing one this "Welcome" window disapear letting me just with the yEd Graph Editor button in the launcher (like if it was running)
The canvas is not displayed also when I try to launch it from the jar file (extracted from the zip) using java -jar.
In short: the canvas is not displayed.
Is there a reason why? Not the good java version? Need to install some dependencies? I couldn't find any other topic about this issue.
