    Re: Install Java Runtime

    I am pretty new at Ubuntu. However, I have installed java on a couple of machines in my classroom because I needed it in order to get through the Watchguard Authentication Applet to get access to the internet. If someone with more experience would like to elaborate and correct me--please do.

    First, have you tried to install it the "easy way" using Applications --> Add/Remove, then select Java Runtime Environment...?

    Second, if that doesn't work, try installing it using the instructions given on the java website at for the "Linux (self-extracting file)" carefully following the instructions at .

    The key to success with the manual install is finding where your profile folder for Firefox is located and creating a symbolic link back to your java installation location.

    Re: Install Java Runtime

    How do I add the java path as an environment variable? Here is the message I get when I try to run mvpod on Hardy

    Java executable not found in /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre/bin/java
    Please add java to your PATH environment variable, or specify it in file /home/stealth17/mvpod/

    Re: Install Java Runtime

    To install Java use the following:

    32 bit (use SUN Java)
    sudo apt-get -y install sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
    64 bit (use Icedtea openJDK)
    sudo apt-get -y install icedtea-java7-jdk icedtea-java7-jre icedtea-java7-plugin
    Windows XP - Excellent computer virus detector.
    Windows Vista - Most bloat for the money.
