If you’ve never heard of iReport and Jasper before, you really ought to take a look at it. It’s a really impressive suite of reporting tools that can generate reports from pretty much any data source out there.

Almost exactly a year ago, we wrote a similar article on how to fix the launcher in version 2.0.x. While I’m sure Jasper improved iReport a lot during this time, they also managed to break the launcher in new ways with version 3.0.0.

This is how you can get it working (assuming you’ve downloaded it):

tar xvfz iReport-3.0.0.tar.gz
cd iReport-3.0.0/bin
awk ‘{ sub(“r$”, “”); print }’ >
chmod +x

The commands above fixes two problems with the launcher. First we convert the line feed from DOS format to UNIX format (the awk-part). The second problem was that the launcher was not executable. If you just make the original launcher executable (chmod +x, you will end up with this:

-bash: ./ /bin/sh^M: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

Good luck, and have fun generating all those new cool reports.
