Does going offline (when opening GeoGebra) help?


If not then I suggest GeoGebra Classic 6

Hi, the 13.10 version of Ubuntu is not a LTS version like the 14.04 and the 16.04 versions maybe, it should be better for you, if you can update Ubuntu to a LTS version (I use the 16.04 Ubuntu version without any problem)

Yes, I know it is not a LTS version but right now in the middle of the course I cannot update everyting.

Hi Michel.

In principle it isn't strictly necessary to open GG as per canonical ways, just get a glance to my solution visible in att'd screenshot. The package Java, coming from each Ubuntu distro [install apt-get ...], provides to activate Geogebra using the terminal command ./geogebra.sh. It could be suitable for the user oub.

Cheers

I cannot test your idea because I'm not a Ubuntu user, but the forum is meant as a place to gather and share information.

So it'd be useful for the whole community if your discussion continued here, instead of by DM, such that other users can test it (Just my opinion of course)

My opinion about the forum activity fully matches yours. Sometimes non official procedures are considered deprecated and erased, then the reason to leave my email address. Cheers

Ok, understood.

In this case, tho, we can't do much to help users to solve their issues then. We always give suggestions that are globally applicable, because we suppose that every installation is the same.

But as when you root your phone, you lose warranty, it's the same here ;)

Anyway, suggestions are always welcome, and discussing publicly issues and solutions can help both the community and the developers.

You wrote: "But as when you root your phone, you lose warranty, it's the same here".

The principle is right, but much unsuitable here, because the use of Java is fully guaranteed by Oracle or other producers. Please, get a glance to my solution inside Windows-10 environment.
