Thread: Closing automatically

  1. #1

    Default Closing automatically

    May the problem looks strange but its real and again that happens only on Linux machine [Ubuntu].
    While running the transformation Keetle closes automatically. I have no clue at what particular point its closing. May be its getting some error while connecting database or reading the file, I have no idea.

    I don't know if this is a known problem, but I didn't find anything in the forum. Is there any way to save the log or somehow I can trace the issue?

    If it crashes look ... start up from the shell command line, after the crash you should find a file ending on ".log" in the directory where you started/installation directory of Kettle.

    I tried to run from command line by "sh". But it ends up with an error as

    Exception in thread "main" org.eclipse.swt.SWTError: No more handles [gtk_init_check() failed]
    at org.eclipse.swt.SWT.error(Unknown Source)
    at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.createDisplay(Unknown Source)
    at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.create(Unknown Source)

    at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<init>(Unknown Source)
    at org.eclipse.swt.widgets.Display.<init>(Unknown Source)
    at org.pentaho.di.ui.spoon.Spoon.main(

    Is there something I have to configure?

    Since I develop Kettle under Ubuntu, I would probably need a bit more information as well.
    Why don't you file a bug report?

    First of all I have to search for how to report a bug and I will do that anyways.
    But if you need some more information you can ask.

    The problem has come up with a number of people on this forum lately, strangely all from India.
    Could it be that you guys are running some specialized version of Ubuntu that doesn't install X-Windows?

    It seems obvious to most of us that you need a Graphical User Environment to run the Spoon Graphical User Interface though.
    Maybe you just need permissions to create a shell in the environment, running as a different user, etc.
    However, these things are not solvable by any of us.

    I'll check if that is installed, but I was running Kettle from Ubuntu UI.
    I mean I was not running that from terminal.
