This is a concise, but yet complete description of all steps required for installing and running the newest version of jAlbum on Linux:

  • download Zip Version of jAlbum
  • download recommended version of Oracle Java, either JDK or JRE.
  • open download folder (screen shot #4) and install both by single clicking their icons; ignore the Java installation error
  • create a program starter on your desktop with the following command:
    java -jar /home/barbara/Downloads/jAlbum/JAlbum.jar
    (screen shot #5)
  • click and enjoy jAlbum
  • copy the program starter to your system's application directory (e.g. /usr/share/applications/). jAlbum will show up in the application menu of all users' desktops.
Note: Pathname of your Download folder may differ.

With jAlbum switching to OpenJDK installation of JavaFX is required for successfully running jAlbum. Modify the program starter to reflect the change of command string:

/usr/lib64/jvm/jre-13-openjdk/bin/java --module-path /home/karl/Downloads/javafx-sdk-13.0.1/lib,javafx.swing,javafx.web -jar /home/karl/Downloads/jAlbum/JAlbum.jar

Values of bold strings depend on details of your installation.

A full version of OpenJDK is available from BellSoft: No additional libraries needed:

java -jar /home/karl/Downloads/jAlbum/JAlbum.jar
