SAP GUI 7.30 for Java will not start on Linux

Hello,

I installed SAP GUI 7.30, java version for Linux and I cannot start it by clicking on its icon. The application logo appears but then disappears after loading the application. I ran it from the console to get the errors. Did anyone have the same issue?

console response:

/home/user/SAPClients/SAPGUI/bin/guilogon

    Hello, All,

    Try to install 1.7.0 last version, via yum install. After this the sapgui 7.3 work fine!.

    Best Regards,

    Martín Sarmiento Narro.

    Hello,

    What is the distribution you have installed?

    • C++ runtime: libstdc++.so.6
      This library is generally included with
      current distributions, at least they all have packages with gcc 4.1 which
      include this library. For information where to find the packages required to
      install, please refer to SAP Note
      909250
      .
    • Supported Linux distributions:

      • SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11
      • SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11
      • openSUSE 12.1 and 12.2
      • Fedora 16 and 17
      • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
      • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6
      • Ubuntu 11.10 and 12.04

    Hello Saulo,

    please make sure to use a current Oracle JRE (e.g. 1.7u11) and try again.

    If the issue persists, please create a support message on component BC-FES-JAV and provide the complete stack trace as an attachment.

    Best regards

    Rolf-Martin

    Same problem in Ubuntu 12. Use Oracle (Sun) Java JRE.

    First removed prior versions of Java.

    sudo apt-get purge openjdk-\*

    Install newer version following this: http://www.duinsoft.nl/packages.php?t=en

    and also the repositories. Worked fine for me.
