Full Version: Java trouble in Mepis
Linuxhelp > Support > Programming in Linux
Im new to Linux and I am using Mepis 3.4. Having Just recently moved from a Windows OS (XP professional to be exact), I've noticed that Java could be a little trickier to run on a Linux machine. My question is, would it be possible that I already have Java installed on Mepis, and if not, how would I go about getting the newest version. I did a google search to find some stuff and this was one of the pages i found:
Starting, I read that this was good for the jdk and jre so i got the lastest of both of them. Next, I tried jre 1.5 first. I followed all the steps and everthng ran smoothley untill step 4. When I did that, was it supposed to show the files seperating from their package like in Windows? The reason is because the package still looked the same in the temporary Java folder I made in /home/Justin folder. It was like a small yellow box. Did it extract and I just didnt see the extracted files in that folder or did it just not extract? and when i ran that test it still said i had 1.4...Any help would be greatly appreciated.
after cutting through a lot of crap..what i can gather is, you downloaded tarred version of JRE and so you are trying to install. There would be a README or something...

Or,if nothing is there...then from command line:

$chmod +x <java_package> (i hope you have unzipped the package before doing this)
