Hi, I am just getting started with Arduino and I am hoping I can use an older iMac G4 PPC that I have. I am running OS 10.4.11 Tiger. I can't seem to get the latest version of the Arduino IDE to operate due to Java problems. I have searched for solutions but I can't find clear answers.
Is it possible to run the Arduino IDE version 1.05 on Mac OS 10.4.11?
If it is possible what version of Java do I need to make it operate?
Would I be better off to run Arduino IDE 1.04?
The error I get shown in console is:
[JavaAppLauncher Error] CallStaticVoidMethod() threw an exception java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: javax/swing/filechooser/FileNameExtensionFilter at java.lang.Class.forName0(Native Method) at java.lang.Class.forName(Class.java:242) at apple.launcher.LaunchRunner.loadMainMethod(LaunchRunner.java:55) at apple.launcher.LaunchRunner.run(LaunchRunner.java:84) at apple.launcher.LaunchRunner.callMain(LaunchRunner.java:50) at apple.launcher.JavaApplicationLauncher.launch(JavaApplicationLauncher.java:52) Exception in thread "main"
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
