Why does trackman not consider my trackman.conf file?
During startup, trackman locks in the working directory for this file. Depending on your operating system, double-clicking might not be enough. Solution: Start trackman from the command line
Change to bin subdirectory of trackman installation folder using the
command, then run by typing
java -jar trackman.jar
You can also put this code into a simple shell script and start trackman by double-clicking the shell-script.
I specified all paths correctly in
trackman.conf. Why does trackman still complain about problems loading Ubitrack?
Make sure that you are using the 32-bit version of Java! Ubitrack is currently being compiled with 32-bit (2011-10-07).
MS Windows Issues
Paths specified in the trackman.conf are not handled appropriately.
Solution: Ensure to quote the backslash when specifying a path under MS Windows, e.g.
MAC OS X Issues
Mac OS X ships with a default Java Runtime Environment (JRE), which has version 5 (Sun internal version 1.5). trackman however needs JRE 6.0 (Sun internal version 1.6) or newer. Manually changing the symlinks pointing to the default installation is not a proper solution and does not work at all on MAC OS X 10.5.5.
Solution: Install a JRE >= 1.6, configure it in your .bashrc as follows and run trackman from this bash.
