I am having a problem getting JiGle to do anything. On Linux, when I do run,sh I get these errors.

java.io.FileNotFoundException: mapData/bounds.txt (No such file or directory)
at java.io.FileInputStream.open(Native Method)
at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)
at java.io.FileInputStream.<init>(Unknown Source)

I can't get anything to work unless I am online. Then all it can do is authenticate. Any suggestions appreciated.

It looks like I had a bad download on my first try. I Just got a good download and errors are gone.

New question. Where should the mappacks I download be put,
ie in the JiGLE/mapData dir? Doesn't one mappack overwrite the
current data in that dir?

OK, I figured it out.

For others that were not able to find any info on how to do it.

Download a mappack and unzip it.

It will unzip to a folder called JiGLEMaps. In that folder is a maps folder.

Copy the contents of JiGLEMaps/maps/ to JiGLE/JiGLEMAPS/maps/.

Re-start JiGLE and your mappack will now be available in the <choose mappacks> button.

It would be nice if this was in the JiGLE README

aye, the mappacks are designed to be unzipped in the directory jigle is located in

Aye, bobzilla but I had not read that anywhere I looked.

I'm glad that I didn't. I plan to update for 3 different counties. If I did
unzip in the jigle dir then I would be overwriting the other county every time. That entails too much work for an old timer like me.

By putting all the map files in like I did they all remain available.

BTW I'm on a very slow dialup line here in the mountains. The less downloading the better.

Sorry Bob. Of course you are correct. As each county is a different filename it will _not_ overwrite the other counties.

My apologies for my hasty reply!

i thought we had a how-to-install-MapPacks blurb somewhere, but i'm not finding it. I added some text to the MapPack selection page. Thanks for pointing that out!

The Digle Readme file has detailed instructions about where to exactly place items.
http://wigle.net/jigle/readme.txt and the downloads page in the Digle area states drop in Jigle directory which in this case would apply to where to drop jigle mappacks as well.

The Digle Readme file has detailed instructions
As I have not used Windows in over 10 years, I did not look at that client. I did not expect that instructions for JiGLE would be in another client. [img][/img]

Well now that it's in the forum, maybe it will be easier for others to find.
