    Java Help

    Hello, I've installed java on earlier ubuntu OS's before, but I can't quite tell what is wrong now.
    I've installed java on my current operating system (9.04) so when I type
    Code:
    java -version
    it gives me 1.6.0_0
    And i have java enabled under firefox preferences, but I still can't seem to run it on programs online (i.e. Runescape)
    Has anyone had this problem?

    - Thanks

    Yes, I downloaded the .deb package from the java website and installed it that way

    I'm still getting an error for Java. It tells me that it seems like Java is not installed on my computer.

    Actaully it was NOT a .deb file, it was a .bin file.

    Re: Java Help

    sometimes you have to actually tell ubuntu what java to use, since typically you have more than one type of java installed.

    see https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java

    Re: Java Help

    I've followed those steps before, that was what I used after I installed the .bin file.

    Re: Java Help

    then i would look for command line arguments to pass a variable to the runescape client pointing to the directory of the java bin folder
