[SOLVED] LMDE: jnlp: No JRE found in configuration file

Actually the problem was solved while I was writing this post, but let the solution be here for the future :)

I could not run .jnlp files neither from browser nor from command line with javaws. The error was:

Code: Select all
$ javaws jviewer\ \(1\).jnlp
Bad installation. No JRE found in configuration file: No such file or directory

This was because I upgraded from LMDE 9 to LMDE 10 and mounted my old home directory with java cache from older version of JRE.

The solution was simple:

Code: Select all
rm -rf ~/.java
