I've tried both tlshell and tlcockpit. tlshell starts up, but at the
moment without any action, but that's ok, it's in development state.

On the other hand I can't start tlcockpit (strace shows FUTEX_WAIT).
Which version of Java/JavaFX is needed? I use the openjdk versions from
Fedora 26. Which .jar-files have to be in the classpath?
