Re: Sponsor for Ontographics?

I dowloaded and had a look. To start withm you've hardcoded the path the java in your program, which is bad:

jepri@luciole:~$ ontographics
/usr/bin/ontographics: line 2: /usr/lib/j2se/1.4/bin/java: No such file or directory /usr/bin/ontographics: line 2: exec: /usr/lib/j2se/1.4/bin/java: cannot execute: No such file or directory

Also, I'm not sure about the actual function of your program. It draws some rather good looking lines and boxes, but there's a couple of programs in Debian that already do that (e.g. Dia ). And they don't need a non-free program to do it.

Maybe I missed some functionality somewhere?

Hi list,

I have put together a small program for information visualization and
mind-mapping and a debian package for it. I'm looking for a sponsor to
possibly get this into Debian.

Ontographics is a Java program, which (at the moment) depends on
j2sdk1.4, which is not in Debian and non-free. The application itself is
GPLed, so it could only go into contrib. My plans are to make it working
with free stuff only, but it is not sure, when this will be finished.

The homepage for the program is here:

The Debian stuff (source and binary packages) can be found here:

What do I have to do, to get these things uploaded into Debian?
