RE: LINUX and SleepyHead with FlashPAP.jar
that's a funny coincidence. my daughter gave me her laptop w dead hard drive; my plan (slow to get around to) has been to pick up a new drive and experiment w linux on it. main obstacle for me has been understanding the variants and why one would pick one over another. have you found a good book to recommend?

RE: LINUX and SleepyHead with FlashPAP.jar
Hello all,
Just to put my 2 cents in, I don't use a computer much at home, my home computer did die a year ago and I have been putting one together, slowly as I find parts on sale, was about to purchase an OS (Windows 10) but i started looking into Linux as an alternative. I am pretty sure Microsoft will sooner or later make Windows a subscription "service" like it has done with Office. I like having a computer but do not want to pay for an OS then need to eventually pay a subscription fee for it.
I am about to put my new machine together (in a week or so) and will need to decide on an OS. Any advice on what is simple to learn and may be compatible with the new OSCAR software when it comes out would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!

While there are many fine Linux distros available, I would recommend looking at the group that has a Ubuntu underpinning.  There is plenty of documentation, programs, and a choice of graphic front-ends available.  One distro, elementary OS, even resembles a Windows display.

If you really want to be confused, try going to https://distrowatch.com/ . This site is a Linux/BSD clearing house with information about all the various distributions available.  

Good luck and welcome to Linux.

(SOLVED) LINUX and SleepyHead with FlashPAP.jar
With ELATION, The problem has been solved.  Thanks 

Here is a forum thread link with video link in it from a very helpful gentleman who helped me limp through the FlashPAP dilemma.  Hope it helps others with the same mind-blockage from a Microsoft pilots point of view..
Suggest you read it through before starting to 'try' things-
HOW IT IS DONE

On Tuesday, April 16, 2019, Ubuntu/Linux Mint issued 3 Java updates. One of these updates will deny execution access to the FlashPAP.jar file. If you read this after the update, I hope you have Timeshift, the system snapshot program, activated.

What is being blocked? Aren't there a way to update the code to work?

RE: LINUX and SleepyHead with FlashPAP.jar
It produces an error message stating, :"Access to .jar file denied". This occurs even while in root. I'm wondering if Java is trying to invoke a "jar" file certificate security.
