5-------------

7To run JOSM, you need:
8
9* The jar file (e.g. josm.jar)
10* The latest Java Runtime Environment 1.5.

13How to get Java
14---------------
15
16You need at least Version 1.5 (called Java5 or "Tiger").
17
18Microsoft Windows people should just visit java.sun.com and
19download the latest Java5 executable.
20
21To get Java under linux, I recommend downloading the environment
22directly from Sun at http://java.sun.com. There is a linux
23binary installer which you have to execute from a console.
24
25However, if you run Debian or Ubuntu or any other dpkg-based
26distribution, you may use unofficial precompiled packages.
27You have to add the following line to your /etc/apt/sources.list
28(replace "stable" with your installation)
29
30deb http://ftp.debian-unofficial.org/debian/ stable non-free
31
32The package is called sun-j2se5.0-jre-binary.
33
34For MacOS user: There is an installer for Mac OS X 10.4:
35http://www.apple.com/support/downloads/java2se50release1.html
36
37Sorry, there is no Version of Java5 for Mac OS X 10.3 available :-(

40How to launch
41-------------
42
43Microsoft Windows people launch by double clicking on the jar file.
44If this does not help, open a command shell and type
45"java -jar josm-latest.jar" in the directory that holds the file.
46(Please replace josm-latest.jar with the name of your jar file, if
47you don't used the latest version.)
48
49Under Linux open a shell, go to the file directory and type
50"java -jar josm-latest.jar" to launch. If this don't help, try to set
51you JAVA_HOME variable to the java location (the root location, not
52the bin. "/usr/lib/sun-j2se5.0-jdk" if you used the prebuild
53package).
54
55MacOS people just click on the jar-file.
