Hi,

Finally, I've fixed the problem with opening collections. Turns out it was
not a problem with the Java. The solution was to follow this guide:

Hi,

I just installed Greenstone 2.85 on Ubuntu 12.04, and I'm having problems
opening collections.

When I try to open a collection I get a message saying that it cannot be
opened. This is what is written in the terminal:

I'm new to linux, but I'm hoping this will give some kind of clue..

P.S.: Sometimes I do not get any message - the cursor just indicates that
it is loading, but nothing happens.
