I'm trying to install a copy of Maplesoft's Maple 15 onto my home computer. This is a legal copy, obtained from my university library. It comes on a CD, which contains an .bin file that installs the software onto my system. Installation goes fine, but when I run the program I get the following error
I'm running 64bit ubuntu 12.04. I have java installed
/home/carranty/maple15/bin/maple: 1: eval: /home/carranty/maple15/jre.X86_64_LINUX/bin/java: not found
Here are the contents of the maple15 directory
carranty@Carranty-Desktop:~/maple15$ java -version
java version "1.7.0_09"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea7 2.3.3) (7u9-2.3.3-0ubuntu1~12.04.1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.2-b09, mixed mode)
If I rename the jre.IBM_INTEL_LINUX folder to jre.X86_64_LINUX, maple loads but is "unable to establish a kernel connection" (which means its completely useless).

Going a different route, I thought I'd try linking where it is looking for the java file, to where it actually is
but get a permission denied error (I've also tried doing this step before renaming the folders, same error). Running maple as root doesn't even help.
