ZendStudio/Ubuntu Reloaded2008-08-29 08:08:31 Back when installing ZendStudio 5.5.0 on Ubuntu I sometimes had the following error:
An internal LaunchAnywhere application error has occured and this application cannot proceed. (LAX)This is because the \u variable of bash (username in the prompt) is mistaken for an (illegal) \uXXXX unicode character. After searching back then I found out (and back then it wasn't #1 hit on a google search) that you just have to temporarily alter your .bashrc:
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Malformed \uxxxx encoding.
at java.util.Properties.loadConvert(Unknown Source)
at java.util.Properties.load(Unknown Source)
(fa@don):(~) $ echo 'export PS1="# "' >> .bashrc
(fa@don):(~) $ source ~/.bashrc
then start the installer and after you're finished, removed the last line and source it again.
For another problem, see that posting.
