Thanks for the response, I installed Tiled.

I'm not sure how to open ATCS itself though. I don't know with which program it should be opened with. My PC defaulted to Gimp for whatever reason. Honestly, I'm not even sure how to open the project via Tiled.

Guess I just fundamentally don't know how to actually open the editor. :|

ATCS is it's own app. You don't open it with anything. You run it like you run any other piece of software, such as Word, Google Chrome, etc.

Quick question: how do walkable tiles work in Tiled? From ATCS I can see that the difference between walkable and unwalkable is these transparent purple tiles, but I'm not sure how where to find those tiles (or how to place the walkable tiles themselves), I've just been doing the ground layer.

The error is caused by a too new java version.

Rip... However, I was able to open ATCS when adding "sudo" to the command. Strange

If sudo helps, then usually it's a permissions issue somehow.

I believe you copied your ATCS folder from windows to Ubuntu.
ATCS remembers your selected theme (look and feel), using by default the OS netive look and feel.
Either you reinstall ATCS from the zip, either you go back to windows, select another look and feel (metal is a safe bet), quit and return to Ubuntu.
It works with sudo because you are using a different account to start ATCS (root) which has its own ATCS preferences (under /root, not /home/user), so the look and feel preference is not reused.
