Have had the same problem,
Partly resolved: have done what you said previously + have given permission to the whole repertory tree to myself => I can see the list of resources providers.
Now, I have the following error:
"Loading Manager Failed", (seems that the download is correct...)
Thanks for your help.
PS: I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 with sunJava 1.6 JDK => I have had to remove your jre in order to have VUE functioning correctly... (some options windows where shown in Grey, without any interface tools in it, and the main windows cannot fit the entire screen...)
PS: Have tried the same work around on my laptop, which is running Ubuntu 8.10 with sunJava 1.6 JDK, and then it's working fine! What is the difference between Ubuntu 8.04 and Ubuntu 8.10? is it really the key?... Next update in 7 days... I will wait for the new Ubuntu, then I'll be able to told you if it was sufficient to resolve the problem...
