Ostorybook won't start

Hello everyone. Very new to EndeavourOS and Arch in general. My experience with Linux has been with debian-based distros, and learning Arch has been a journey to be sure.

Anyway, I wanted to write some fiction and decided to grab ostorybook from the AUR since I’ve used it before. I cloned it, ran ‘makepgk -si’ and it installed without issue, but when I go to open it, it starts to open, then immediately closes. I’m not sure what could be causing this issue. The ostorybook site states you must have Java version 8 for it to work correctly, and I checked and Java is already installed on EndeavourOS, and way above version 8.

I’m not sure if this is an Arch specific issue or I just can’t read directions. Thanks for any forthcoming assistance.

Try running it from the terminal and see if you get an error displayed there


works for me

Thanks so much. I ran it from the terminal and it wound up being a dependency issue with Java. After updating Java on my system it runs perfectly. Sorry for the silly question. Arch is still new to me.

Welcome to the forum. I hope you enjoy your time here.

There are no silly questions here. As long as one learns from their question, it isn’t silly.
