Title: instaltaion problem - linux - Failed to set display mode
Post by: theblackrabbit on November 19, 2006, 11:57:22
Hi,
so I've downloaded the zip file and extracted it as I was told in the instalation guide. Then i browsered to the folder through my command line and typed:

[pawel@localhost lwjgl-1.0beta4]$ java -cp .:res:jar/lwjgl.jar:jar/lwjgl_test.jar:jar/lwjgl_util.jar:jar/lwjgl_fmod3.jar:jar/lwjgl_devil.jar:jar/jinput.jar: -Djava.library.path=native/linux org.lwjgl.test.WindowCreationTest


What happend then, well a new Window was open (I thought 'that's cool') but  on my console I got the following error:

The following keys are available:
ESCAPE:         Exit test
ARROW Keys:     Move window when in non-fullscreen mode
L:              List selectable display modes
0-8:            Selection of display modes
F:              Toggle fullscreen
SHIFT-F:        Toggle fullscreen with Display.destroy()/create() cycle
Found 1 display modes
