Java3D and vecmath exist as packages in the Ubuntu repositories but don’t seem to be installed to the classpath. After running
sudo aptitude install libvecmath1.2-java libjava3d-java
you’ll get the following errors.
package javax.vecmath does not exist import javax.vecmath.Color3f; ... package javax.media.j3d does not exist import javax.media.j3d.Behavior;
The solution is to copy the relevant jar files to somewhere they will be found.
sudo cp /usr/share/java/j3d*.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/ext/ sudo cp /usr/share/java/vecmath*.jar /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/lib/ext/
There may be a similar problem with the native libraries which would be solved by copying the .so files to
/usr/lib and running
