Installing Java on Linux





jay84h
Hey, I just recently reformatted my whole hard drive on one of the computers from Windows XP to Linux. I understand that you have to use the Terminal to install the Java application but do not really understand the instructions outlined on the Java website. I was wondering if anyone could give much simplar instruction on how to do this?
MrBlueSky
Do you want to install the Java Runtime Environment (to run application written in Java) or do you want to install one of the JDK's (needed when you want to create java programs yourself)?

I need to install the JRE to run java programs such as java games and such.....

what advantages do you get with linux anyway? i heard that you can't really install a lot of programs on it
jay84h
There as so many programs already pre-listed on Add/Remove programs for you to choose haha. Linux is just not supported with many games, for example Counter-Strike: Source, however Linux is an excellent OS where you will have ZERO trojans/viruses.

You're kidding, right? My SuSe Linux distro from about 8 years ago contained 6 cd-roms loaded with software (!). And that's only a small amount of the linux programs out there. Razz

haha, anyways.....I now know how to install a binary file! thanks to MrBlueSKy. Installing Java from the site he listed was a great way of getting you to think how you can install files. Thanks MrBlueSKy!

The simplest way under Ubuntu is Automatix (http://www.getautomatix.com/). This tool install java, flash, video drivers with one click, ideal for begginers Smile But installation form binaries is simple too Wink
