I am currently running ubuntu 16.04 and after about an hour hustling with finding the processing-java file i was able to put in an executable PATH, but wait. There’s a problem. When i try to run some code I get some sort of terminal with help instructions as below.
Command line edition for Processing 0262 (Java Mode)
–help Show this help text. Congratulations.
–sketch= Specify the sketch folder (required)
–output= Specify the output folder (optional and
_ cannot be the same as the sketch folder.)_
–force The sketch will not build if the output
_ folder already exists, because the contents_
_ will be replaced. This option erases the_
_ folder first. Use with extreme caution!_
–build Preprocess and compile a sketch into .class files.
–run Preprocess, compile, and run a sketch.
–present Preprocess, compile, and run a sketch in presentation mode.
–export Export an application.
–no-java Do not embed Java. Use at your own risk!
–platform Specify the platform (export to application only).
_ Should be one of ‘windows’, ‘macosx’, or ‘linux’._
The --build, --run, --present, or --export must be the final parameter
passed to Processing. Arguments passed following one of those four will
be passed through to the sketch itself, and therefore available to the
sketch via the ‘args’ field. To pass options understood by PApplet.main(),
write a custom main() method so that the preprocessor does not add one.
Not a valid sketch folder. /home/vic/Desktop/Desktop.pde does not exist…
