Raspberry Pi

While the installer runs OK there is an issue with the SWT graphical library required to run BiglyBT itself - see Issue 317

As per the issue, the problem can manually be resolved by installing the correct (albeit a little old) SWT library:

sudo apt-get install libswt-gtk-4-java libswt-cairo-gtk-4-jni

and then replace/copy the swt.jar in the BiglyBT installation directory:

cp /usr/lib/java/swt-gtk-4.6.0.jar <install location>/swt.jar

You may want to update the Java version on the pi as of writing the version installed with Raspbian desktop (you'll need to install Java yourself if not running this) is old. This thread has some useful information regarding doing so. For example, the following worked for me (tm)

sudo apt-get install dirmngr

echo "deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu trusty main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list echo "deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/webupd8team/java/ubuntu trusty main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/webupd8team-java.list sudo apt-key adv --keyserver hkp://keyserver.ubuntu.com:80 --recv-keys EEA14886

sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install oracle-java8-jdk
