    Hello, I finally got tired of having to run a windows box just to use kmttg. I've never been able to get it running on Linux due to java changes.

    I am a java n00b but I was able to convert the project to use maven and to include the dependencies (openjfx being the most trouble) for me.

    I didn't have to make any changes to kmttg other than tweaking the version number so it is not confused with the official version.

    I have only tested this on Ubuntu 20.04.

    sudo apt install default-jre

    java -version
    openjdk version "11.0.9" 2020-10-20
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.9+11-Ubuntu-0ubuntu1.20.04)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.9+11-Ubuntu-0ubuntu1.20.04, mixed mode, sharing)

    use the kmttg shell script to launch the jar

    Release 2.4o-UNOFFICIAL ยท MPp36Vw6Ww/kmttg

    Huh? I never had any problems with it running on Ubuntu with Oracle Java 8, other than some of the ancillary programs not being available.

    But good on you for freeing us from Oracle for the final two months!
