Why won’t Think or Swim work on ubuntu 15.10

Once again desperately trying to install TOS on ubuntu 15.10. But once again I get a big fail from TOS.

My previous post on 14.04 worked fine, but I haven’t been trading that much and I upgraded my linux box. 

Here is what I have done so far:

Thinkorswim needs Java7 to run. To install java7 on the machine:

  1. sudo apt-add-repository ppa:webupd8team/java
  2. sudo apt-get update
  3. sudo apt-get install oracle-java7-installer

To install Thinkorswim:

  1. Click “Install thinkdesktop” to download the thinkorswim installer to a directory on your PC.
  2. After downloading open a shell and CD to the directory where you downloaded the installer.
  3. At the prompt type: sh ./thinkorswim_installer.sh

Once I get the program installed I get a new error message. There is no proxy to chose from as it just comes up blank. I’m not doing any thing fancy with proxy or firewalls so this shouldn’t be an issue.

Any thoughts Think or Swim? or anybody else?

 

Update: 11/30 – 12/1

So if you go to https://216.105.249.176/suit/index.xml?whitelabel=tos  you get the following error message

{"error":"symbol is not futures"}

So if I getting a return message from the server then how can it be a 400 response code. Also I concerned that an organization such as TD Ameritrade isn’t using all https? I’m not an expert in this area but even my twitter bootstrap cdn’s are using https. (Of course I’m not but that’s a whole other story…)

ThinkorSwim on Ubuntu 15.04

I wrote a blog post about TOS, Ubuntu and 14.04 and based on traffic, there appears to be serious need for this issue. I have since upgraded to 15.04 and will probably upgrade to 15.10 here a few weeks.

Unfortunately, when I upgraded to 15.04, I’m no longer able to log into TOS. Has anybody had any success with 15.04 and TOS? If so please post a link in the comments and I will try do a write so everybody can figure this out, since Front running, Non Linux supporting TD Ameritrade has no interest in support there product.
