Javafx/scene/paint/color error on OS X

I get the javafx/scene/paint/color error, as well as the “could not initialize class” error when trying to create a new case.

Any insight…?

Sounds like you are using a version of Java that doesn’t have JavaFX.
What is your JAVA_HOME environment variable set to and what do you get when you run ‘java -version’?

openjdk version “1.8.0_252”

OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_252-b09)

OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.252-b09, mixed mode)

That looks like the output of java -version…what about the JAVA_HOME environment variable?

I’m sorry i’m fairly new to this. How can I list my JAVA_HOME details?


What platform are you on?

Macbook terminal.
