Running On Your Local System
To run Hopper on your local system, follow these instructions:
- Check Java—Make sure you have Java version 1.5 or later installed. To check the java version number, run "java -version" from a terminal window.
- Download Appropriate File(s)—(from any LC production host)
- Complete the Installation
|Mac||Double click on the dmg file to open the volume, then drag the Hopper application to the desired location on your hard drive. Double click on the Hopper icon to launch Hopper.|
|PC||Simply double-click on the exe file to launch Hopper. No installation is necessary.|
|Unix||Rename the hopper.local file "hopper." This is a special startup script for use on local Unix systems. This is what you will run to invoke hopper.
Edit the hopper script so that it points to your copy of hopper.jar by changing the first occurrence of "HOPPER_JAR_FILE." Alternatively, you can set the environment variable HOPPER_JAR_FILE to point to the jar file location. You will also need to edit the hopper script to point to the Java executable on your system by changing the first occurrence of "HOPPER_JAVA." Alternatively, you can set the environment variable HOPPER_JAVA to point to the java executable location.
Basic usage information is available in the man page.
