I tried following along with the instructions to setup the toolchain in linux (ubuntu 19.04), but there is a problem with java.
using the listed PPA I get an error: Package oracle-java8-installer is not available, but is referred to by another package.
There was a note when installing the PPA which includes a link to a newer PPA, but it doesn’t offer oracle java8, only 11-13.
When I install java 12, it doesn’t work with eclipse “oxygen.3” as recommended.
If I install openjdk-8, it seems to work fine as far as I can see. Should I be expecting any issues running this way, or alternatively, has support been added for newer versions of eclipse that run on newer java versions?
A few steps later, when trying to build the blinky project, I try to run stm32CubeProgrammer, it complains that JavaFX is not installed. This happens whether I have the openjfx package installed, and regardless of whether I’m running openjdk 8, 11, or oracle 12 or 13.
is the gnu-mcu-eclipse plugin compatible with newer versions of eclipse? The book says that it strongly suggests Oxygen.3a since the newer ones aren’t supported. I guess that may have changed since then.
Is there somewhere to check for compatibility, or is it a try-and-see kind of thing?
It would be good to get on a newer version, since I imagine compatibility for java 8 is not going to be around forever. (It’s already off the PPAs, only openjdk 8 still remains in ubuntu 19.04)
for the stm32CubeProgrammer, the CLI version works fine, so I’m just going to use that.
