Burpsuite is not starting

Umang | Last updated: Aug 06, 2015 05:01AM UTC

When I try to launch Burpsuite v1.6.01 from my 32-bit Ubuntu-12.04LTS, it shows message "Proxy:Proxy service started on" but no UI is displayed means Burpsuite App is not launched. -My PC has a second partition in which I have installed Windows 7 [64-bit] -I have downloaded burpsuite from official site "burpsuite_free_v1.6.01.jar". -I am using command "sudo java -jar burpsuite_free_v1.6.01.jar" -My java version is 1.6.0_35. {java version "1.6.0_35" OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.13.7) (6b35-1.13.7-1ubuntu0.12.04.2) OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)} -Java resintalled several times [tried both jdk-6,7] [And I guess SWING UI is installed with command: "sudo apt-get install default-jre"] I dont know how to check if it is installed or not.

This behavior indicates that your JVM is running in headless mode. The alert message about the Proxy service is normally shown in the Alerts tab of the UI, but if Burp is running in headless mode then it is printed to the console. The server VM probably doesn't include the desktop UI, so we would recommend installing a desktop version of Java.
