Error in the Linux packaging

Just a quick note to inform you that there's an error in the Linux packaging, that prevents ParaJVE from working (it terminates silently as soon as you click "Run Game"). Thanks to Jörg for reporting this bug!

If this happens to you, all you have to do to fix the error is to edit the launch script (called "ParaJVE") and add the following string as the first argument on the command line :

Thus, once edited, the launch file should read (one single line):
java -Djava.library.path=libs/natives
-cp libs/ParaJVE.jar:libs/jogl.jar:libs/gluegen-rt.jar
ParaJVE "$1" "$2"

If you feel lazy, the fixed launch file can be downloaded here: ParaJVE's linux startup file.

There have also been several reports of ParaJVE hanging at startup on Windows. Although I cannot reproduce the problem on my machines, I'll try to work out a fix for the next release (well, hopefully).
If you experience this problem, please contact me as I need as much feedback as possible on this issue... Thanks!
