Hi,

I've got the following running fine one a Windows machine:

But the following does not work in Linux.

I'm fairly new to Linux so I've probably missed something simple.

Can someone tell me what I'm missing?

On Linux you must use : (colon) instead of ; (semi-colon) to separate entries on a path - because ; has a different meaning in the shell on Linux. So it should be:

java -cp bin:./lib/commons-lang-2.5.jar:./lib/commons-collections-3.2.1.jar sandbox.LegionLauncher

Do be careful with those semicolons! In Linux/Unix, you use colons to delimit commands just like Java code does. Windows had to use semicolons because they use colons as part of their file path naming scheme.
