After the latest Manjaro update Sweet Home 3D refuses to open

I encountered the following issue this afternoon when I attempted opening Sweet Home 3D normaly:

Clicking on the icon the start program window appeared and the program tab started spinning briefly on the bar, then, disappeared leaving the start window blocked on the screen that I was unable to close. Rebooting does the job of closing the window, but every time I attempt to reopen the application it’s the same problem again.

I currently have 3 kernels, 5.4, 5.10 and 5.15, and I’ve tried to open the application after booting into each kernel, but with no joy, alas…

Any help to resolve this predicament would be much appreciated :crossed_fingers:

Here’s my system output:

strange, runs fine on my machine. Maybe try to start it from command line to see some messages. Could be a Java issue?

I’ll try to find the appropraite command line arguments(possibly in Manjaro Wiki?) and see how it goes. Thanks for your suggestion @hape :+1:

Arch linux bug report - FS#74474 : [sweethome3d] Fails to launch because JRE 17 workaround not updated for JRE 18

END-USER WORKAROUND: Manually force sweethome3d to call an earlier version of Java by setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable at runtime, e.g.

$ JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk sweethome3d

@ishaanbhimwal thanks for your reply. I’m not particularly competent with the terminal but I’ve looked at few of the things in the link you provided.

I entered the command:

sudo JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-11-openjdk sweethome3d

It opened the application and I got the follwing message :

“Java 3D: implicit antialiasing enabled”

It’s a good start I think. Cheers! :hugs:

Also you may try to install the “Flatpak-Version”. It works than.
