Iwhen i want run Hamshere, i have that error message :
The file '/home/jean-yves/Bureau/hamsphere_2.0.19_for_linux_and_mac.jar' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.
Hamsphere needs to run under Java, and needs a bit of help to work under Linux. I made a shell script to run my Hamsphere, which is in the directory /home/lex/Hamsphere.
java -jar hamsphere_current.jar
I call that script 'run.sh'. You can create it with gedit or if you're happy with the commandline, 'vi' or 'nano'. Save it to the directory with your hamsphere .jar in it, and set it as executable. If you're using GNOME, this means going to the Places menu and choosing 'Home Folder', then double-clicking 'Hamsphere', right-clicking on 'run.sh', selecting the Permissions tab and enabling 'Allow executing file as a program' next to 'Execute'.
On my system, 'hamsphere_current.jar' is a symbolic link to the current hamsphere .jar - you can use 'hamsphere_2.0.19_for_linux_and_mac.jar' instead, but you'll need to edit the script when updating Hamsphere.
Once the script is in place, you can add a launcher for it by right-clicking in a GNOME panel, choosing 'Add To Panel' and selecting 'Custom Application Launcher'. Fill in the following values (in bold), substituting the name of your launch script under the 'Command' field:

My Java version is Sun Java 6 (sun-java6-jre, sun-java6-bin) on Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) - I found that only Sun Java will work.
HI ,, I am trying to install HS3 on my unbuntu system,which is 11.04.. but I get the following error..
End-of-central-directory signature not found. Either this file is not
a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a multi-part archive. In the
latter case the central directory and zipfile comment will be found on
the last disk(s) of this archive.
zipinfo: cannot find zipfile directory in one of /home/graeme/Desktop/HamSphere_126.96.36.199_setup.exe or
/home/graeme/Desktop/HamSphere_188.8.131.52_setup.exe.zip, and cannot find /home/graeme/Desktop/HamSphere_184.108.40.206_setup.exe.ZIP, period.
just tried to install using Wine.. but it has come up with this
The file '/home/graeme/Desktop/HamSphere_3.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.
Once downloaded, I suggest moving this to a directory where it's going to be safe - i.e. not accidentally deleted - and then run it with
java -jar hamsphere_220.127.116.11.jar
If all is well, the HamSphere window should open. If not, check that you have Java installed. Check your DISPLAY environment variable. You can create a launcher to start HamSphere without having to open a terminal.
