JavaGraphics not functional with Wolfram language on RPi

I would like to use JavaGraphics with the Wolfram language on RPi. This is the advertised way to use graphics with the kernel (<< JavaGraphics`). I t needs an x-server which I have working. From the root terminal, it loads the package (package is initialized but says first::first {} has length of zero} but crashes when I try to use it (java.lang.Null.PointerException). It is very clunky to have to export graphics to see them. Is this a bug or something not quite ready? Thanks

Bruce and Todd-

Thanks that did the trick! I never got a prompt and effective response like this before. I still get the  first::first message and it takes some time to get started, After that it blits each plot in its own window (Out). I put the file in:


For setting up xwindows I use xdm as described here.

Wow, the NullPointerException turned out to be a one-line bug that dates back many years to the very beginning of J/Link, but had never been exercised until now. I have made a fixed JLink.jar file available for download at  (it will only stay up for a week). Replace the existing JLink.jar at <Mathematica dir>/SystemFiles/Links/JLink.

Duplicated.  I will ping developers about it.
