This weekend, I took delivery of a new Asus Ultrabook, and I installed ubuntu 13.04 side by side with windows 8, from a pendrive. All seemed to be going well, a restart of the system allowed me to boot into windows or ubuntu from a GRUB menu.
I tried to install the jdk6 from sun, and even though the PATH, JAVA_HOME looked all set, I kept getting the following message when trying to compile code:
The program 'javac' can be found in the following packages: ... a list of pacakges.
Now when I even try to edit .profile I get:
The program 'vi' can be found in the following packages:
Everything seems to have gone wrong!
Also, when restarting my PC, and selecting the windows option, a EFI path is not found, so the only way I can book into windows is through the bios.
The laptop has two hard drives, 1x500gb where windows 8 resides, and I put ubuntu on a separate 1x25gb SSD, I need to obviously get these problems nailed one by one, but first off is there an easy way just to wipe ubuntu and reinstall a fresh copy?
