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?
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
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.
Very funny lol.....actually Glenn wasn't really joking, he just likes to pretend that whenever someone thinks he's cracked hahahaha
hahahaha, your Mr. SlackerMcSlackerton, I am SlackyMcSlackSlack, haaha
LMAO that's hilarious hahaha, everyone do not mind him he is insane in the membrane haha
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!
