    Unhappy Just tried to install Java 1.7 on 11.04(Natty), can't get it to work.

    Hey folks. yesterday I downloaded and tried to install Java 1.7.0 on my PC, but I can't get the darn thing to work.

    First I tried installing it using a method suggested on the official website: I opened it with Archive Manager and extracted it to my home folder(since I couldn't put it in the standard spot). That didn't work, so I tried another method involving updating thru the Terminal process, which also failed.

    How can I get this to work? There are programs I'd like to use that don't work with the standard OpenJDK stuff.

    The tutorial I used to install Java was this one right here: https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/java

    It worked perfectly fine with the latest Java. However, you must run the java program from the command line.

    To execute a .jar, type java -jar in then drag the file in.
    Feel free to add me on Skype for a quicker response, but tell me you're from the forums!
    Read the following if you want, but I'm warning you: it may be complete nonsense!

    See also the Ubuntu Community Documentation for installing Java:

    The webup8 method under the Oracle Java 7 section is very simple and works quite well.
