Link (Get Java): FIRST YOU NEED THE LATEST JAVA INSTALLED (FREE DOWNLOAD)
1. FIRST, YOU MUST have configured the folder path to the sidewinder application folder in "DRAG-DROP-Sidewinder.sh" AND set the script "executable" on the folders' "file properties pop-up tab".
2. FIRST, YOU MUST have a "properly installed JRE Java runtime environment" for the command in the script to be "java" in lower case letters to be the only command in the "DRAG-DROP-Sidewinder.sh" starter script EXAMPLE: If the application folder to the engine folder inside was /home/samuel/SideWinderColourBalancer/engine "THEN the command in the script" would configure in your text editor,
java -classpath "/home/samuel/SideWinderColourBalancer/engine" SidewinderPhotoColourBalancer
note: The application starter .exe for windows is a 32 bit MS-Win (x64 usually has a converter for small .exe). (UNIX is a .sh shell file)
note: For Mac OSx right click on the "MAIN .class" called "SidewinderPhotoColourBalancer.class" in the "./engine folder" to create a starter from the menu(after you have Java installed).
