View Full Version : how to install JavaFX?

December 24th, 2008, 08:53 AM
I'd like to start playing around with JavaFX. I tried to update the Java JVM and SDK through Synaptic Package Manager, but no luck there. The new versions don't seem to be in the repository yet. So, I guess I need to install manually. Can anyone point me toward directions for doing this?

There's no JavaFX support for Linux nor Solaris, seems to come later, read more here:

I heard there are workarounds by installing the mac version but haven't tried myself.
