How do I install Java? [SOLVED]

Postby rdonnelly on Sun Oct 21, 2012 8:35 am

I tried a few of the methods here, and I tried right from the Java site and it never works.

I got java here http://www.java.com/en/download/linux_m ... ?locale=en

I got the install instructions here http://www.java.com/en/download/help/li ... nstall.xml

I hope some one can set me straight?

Thanks Bob

Hi Bob,

Check out this link: http://mpashworth.wordpress.com/2012/09 ... x-mint-13/
This will install SUN's jre and supply you with updates when available.

Hope this helps,

Mark

I made an install script just to do this.
See the thread: http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=213&t=114316

The 3rd party repo is easier, but some people don't lie using 3rd party repos. I would personally rather just install it myself directly from the package, thus the reason for making the script.

I know it's solved but in case you want to do it the hard way without using any third party repo etc, you may want to follow the instructions here:
