what's your version of Java? How do you launch JOSM?

comment:2 Changed 5 years ago by Glassman

java version

JOSM is run from the application menu.

You are using the josm-latest package from the repository?

If so, please run the application from the command line and report the output.

Could it be the same problem as in #12332 and #12022?

Some weeks ago, the /etc/java-7-openjdk/ has deactivated assistive_technologies. Actually it looks like Ubuntu has been updated and assistive_technologies=org.GNOME.Accessibility.AtkWrapper is now activated.

Try edit /etc/java-7-openjdk/ and comment out the line assistive_technologies=org.GNOME.Accessibility.AtkWrapper.

commenting out assistive_technologies property solved the problem.

Running josm-latest from the command line works as expect, with or without commenting our It's only when run from the menu that it hangs.

Same results for version 9660.

also removed openjdk-7 and installed openjdk-8. josm-latest runs correctly from command line, fails from menu item. Menu item contains josm-latest %F.

GNOME AtkWrapper really looks like pure crap (see not exhaustive list #12022 #12061 #12062 #12063 #12332), I wonder why OpenJDK maintainers enabled it by default... :(

@sebastic: do you have more information than we do?

comment:7 Changed 5 years ago by sebastic

Based on the changelog entry for openjdk-7 (7u85-2.6.1-6) it was re-enabled to fix Debian Bug #797595.

It may be worthwhile to raise this issue with the OpenJDK maintainers. They have fixed the other packages that had issues with the re-enabled AtkWrapper.

I don't use GNOME, and haven't experienced this issue personally.

comment:8 Changed 5 years ago by Don-vip

As far as I understand this is not specific with Gnome as most of users reporting issues aren't using it neither. Obviously this is not fixed (see the list of hang/crash bugs) and the software is unmaintained (last commit 6 months ago).

Can we ask to disable it again?

Can we ask to disable it again?

Of course. I suggest to report the related JOSM issues in the Debian bugreport too. The bugtracker is public, you don't need an account. See the bug reporting page.
