If you don’t know, VASSAL is an Open Source Java based board game engine. I recently converted to Fedora, and it seems can’t just “Get Vassal” and run it.
If you pull the code down and run
./VASSAL.sh and nothing happens, run this:
$ rpm -qa | grep openjdk java-1.8.0-openjdk-headless-184.108.40.206.b09-0.fc31.x86_64
As you can see the default installation doesn’t have the libraries like mentioned
here. Go ahead
and run the following and then you should be able to run
see the application start.
sudo dnf install java-1.8.0-openjdk
