I am trying to install the ScreenConnect client on my Raspberry Pi so that I can remote into it. I saw one post telling me to install Java 8 so I did, but now when I try to install ScreenConnect I get an error saying: "depends on java5 runtime; however; package java5-runtime is not installed." How do I get and install Java5? I am not very familiar with Linux commands, so more details is better. I am running Raspbian on a Pi3.
Thanks!

this is the output I get when trying to install ScreenConnect on my raspberry3 with Raspbian OS:

Can anyone help me?

So this thread saw a similar error and found a workaround. I'm not sure if it would work for you but it's probably worth investigating.

With that said, I have half a dozen or so RaspberryPis at home doing various useless things and ScreenConnect runs as expected on them. Looking at one, I see the following java version:

Code:

java version "1.8.0_65"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_65-b17)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.65-b01, mixed mode)


You could try installing that specific version, if possible.

While we do not officially support installing the client on RaspberryPis, I generally like to at least see if it's a simple fix. If you want to shoot our Support team an email I'd like to take a direct look; just include my name somewhere in the subject to make sure it gets to me.

Hi,

Just curious what your using the RaspberryPI for related to SC? What sort of things do you have it doing (PI)?

Thanks,
Rich

@richtj99 I have one that has a camera attached pointed out of a window at my home. Every 30 minutes it takes a picture and dumps it onto a website it also hosts. I use another Pi as a RetroPi arcade box for older video games.

I have several wifi-enabled light bulbs and I use another Pi with a touchscreen to act as a control point for them. It's basically an overpriced light switch.

I've played around with a 'smart mirror' project, similar to the ones that are floating around on the internet. I'm just not sure how much utility is really there.

I use them in a production network as digital signage for a customer we support. I'm going to give an install a try on the 4 of them we have deployed and I'll follow up with how the install goes.

It will be really nice to be able to get onto the units and adjust web page displays or make various adjustments ..etc.
