I have been postponing to start with openhab for a while, and this week I have been trying to install this on a spare NUC i had lying around.
As I only had ubuntu installed, I said I would give it a try.
I followed the instructions to install it on linux, and to most extend did not had any problem. I have never used linux either (expect to run XBMC) so it took me a while to install the java part.
I keep trying to start Openhab, but I can’t seem to be capable of this.
I have even tried to reinstall openhab, but I keep getting the same error.
Can anyone give me a hand. I really want to jump into this
I tried googling the error, but I can’t figure out what I should do or how linux works :)) so please be patient. I am a hardware guy, not a software guy.
Anyhow. This is what happens when I try to start it. (by the way, the linux installation restarts every day at 3 am, as I had it set ed up as an access point and it kept crashing after a few days.

P.S. i am running Ubuntu 16.04 x64 on an Celeron N2820 with 8gb ram.
Hopefully, someone smarter has any ideas of what I’m doing wrong.
