Vega Requirements (1.0) / Troubleshooting

  • On Ubuntu/Debian systems: sudo apt-get install libwebkitgtk-1.0
  • On Fedora systems: sudo yum install webkitgtk
  • Not having this library will commonly cause Vega to fail after installation.
  • Windows: if you have the 32-bit JRE (x86), you will need to install the 32-bit version of Vega.
  • The 32-bit JRE is common, especially for Java 7, even on 64-bit Windows systems.
  • If Vega fails after install because it cannot find Java, this may be the cause and you should try another version of Vega (32/64 bit).
  • Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine: This error often occurs when memory requirements for the max heap size can't be met. Edit the Vega.ini file in the Vega directory and change the value of the -Xmx parameter to 1536m or lower, save the file, and then restart Vega.
  • The line should read -Xmx1536m or -Xmx1024m instead of -Xmx2048m
  • You may also be required to install and/or run Vega with administrator privileges on Windows 8 and some Windows 7 systems.
