It should be dynamically determined based on your machine. I have one machine with 16Gb RAM and the MW uses 4Gb, another machine has 32Gb RAM and the MW uses 8Gb. But you can force to use more memory if at the start up you go to advanced settings and enter java related memory -Xms, -Xmx parameters.

Hi Spin,

When you first start MotiveWave, you can select Advanced after clicking on the Options button. You can try changing the heap size but be careful not to make it too large as it could stop MotiveWave from restarting and forcing a complete uninstall and reinstall of the program.

FYI:

When you have 'tweaked' the above parameters over the limit, and MW refuses to start, simply locate the file startup.ini in your home/.motivewave folder and remove the arguments.

No need to remove & reinstall, and you can start experimenting all over again ;)

Hello @albrespirar and welcome to the MW-forums.

I "think" you might be the first known 'Arch-hero' here 😄

My experience with Arch is rather limited, but this line immediately caught my eye :

/usr/bin/motivewave: línea 35: bc: orden no encontrada

Is the package 'bc' installed ? Google tells me it is in the 'Extra'-repository

bc is not part of MW, imo.

Try installing it and report back please :)

Thanks MW Team for the Linux version that works very fast and smoothly on my laptop.
However i have a lease to IQFeed and I can't connect to it in any way (see attached picture).
After read this topic i decided to try and install macOS Big Sur on a virtualbox machine, install lasted MW 6.4.4 and Crossover though the official IQFeed guide and it looks like it works out of the box without any issues.

I'm running Arch Linux up to date and MW 6.4.4
Bash:
java -version
openjdk version "15.0.2" 2021-01-19
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 15.0.2+7)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 15.0.2+7, mixed mode)
I also tried with a fresh Debian Buster Live USB and also Ubuntu 20.4 Live USB without luck.

Wonder know if you guys are running IQFeed with MW on your linux machine and if so without any issues ?

Thanks in advance
