View Full Version : [SOLVED] VisualVM does not start on Ubuntu 10.10

December 4th, 2010, 04:58 AM
I just installed Ubuntu10.10 (i had 9.10 before that). I am trying to run VisualVM (which was already installed) and i get the following error

"You are running VisualVM using Java Runtime Envoronment (JRE). Please use Java Development Kit (JDK) to run VisualVM"

I have Sun JDK installed. How do I instruvt VisualVM to use the JDK?

Thank you

Ok I found the solution here https://visualvm.dev.java.net/description.html#getting_started. (https://visualvm.dev.java.net/description.html#getting_started)

For the record it is specified in file /etc/visualvm/visualvm.conf
