    Default Kettle UI error on AIX 5.3‏

    Hi all,
    We are trying to run Kettle on AIX 5.3, but it seems Kettle 3.2.0-stable is not well tested on AIX, the error messages are as following:

    On some systems not all required files to run spoon are included... on some systems it depends on system files, you would need install cairo to be able to run Spoon on AIX.

    But why not run spoon on Linux/Windows and execute them on AIX?
