The Desktop version of the Simulator is mainly a debugging and testing tool. The main application is the Android version as this one can be used as a pocket calculator.

Installation #

Copy the “Desktop” jar file anywhere you like. With most modern desktop environments a double click on the jar’s icon will start the application. If not try to use the command line:

java -jar FX-603P-Desktop-7.1.2.jar

Replace 7.1.2 with the correct version number. If even this does not work check your operating systems documentation on how to start a jar.

Change Look & Feel #

It is possible to change the look and feel of the application by editing the /home/USERNAME/FX-602P/fx-603P.properties file. You need knowledge on how Java Swing GUIs are rendered. If all you want is to make the user interface larger or smaller then all you need to do is change the button and font size:

Button.size.height=24
Button.size.width=96
Dialog.font=DejaVuSans-PLAIN-15
Dialog_Large.font=DejaVuSans-PLAIN-21
Dialog_Small.font=DejaVuSans-PLAIN-11
Monospaced.font=DejaVuSansMono-PLAIN-15
Monospaced_Large.font=DejaVuSansMono-PLAIN-21
Monospaced_Small.font=DejaVuSansMono-PLAIN-11
