HaxeUI library not working with Lime/openFL/Haxe

I'm trying to run the HelloWorld sample provided by HaxeUI in my linux machine.

when I test using Lime or OpenFL like lime test neko it gives the following error:

/usr/lib/haxe/std/neko/_std/sys/FileSystem.hx:59: characters 21-90 : Error stat
/usr/lib/haxe/std/neko/_std/sys/FileSystem.hx:68: characters 9-19 : Called from

/home/ahmadz/openfl/haxeui/1,8,20/haxe/ui/toolkit/core/Toolkit.hx:50: characters 2-26 : Called from

however, when I try to test using sudo like sudo lime test neko, this error shows up:

Called from openfl/_legacy/utils/ByteArray.hx line 760 
Called from openfl/_legacy/Lib.hx line 284 
Called from openfl/_legacy/Lib.hx line 427 Called from openfl/_legacy/Lib.hx line 219

Here is my haxelib list result:

actuate: [1.8.7]
box2d: [1.2.3]
haxeui: [1.8.20]
hscript: [2.0.7]
hxcpp: [3.3.49]
layout: [1.2.1]
lime-samples: [2.6.0]
lime: 2.9.1 [3.0.3]
openfl-samples: [4.0.0]
openfl: 4.0.3 [3.6.1]
swf: [2.2.3]

Am I doing something wrong?, I'm an OpenFL beginner and I need HaxeUI for a project I'm working on. Thanks in advance.


  • For the future record and anyone facing the same problem. I had to switch to Lime 2.9.1 using haxelib set lime 2.9.1 and now it works!
