Installing OpenJDK 7 (JRE) but only policytools found in ./jre/bin

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I'm trying to install Java 7 onto my Ubuntu machine through apt-get. I'm issuing the to install using apt-get: sudo apt-get openjdk-7-jre apt-get claims a successful install, but I cannot appear to make use of OpenJDK 7. Note: I have also tried headless version and gotten similar results. I'm a complete novice at Linux but comparing to OpenJDK 6 JRE which I have installed, there should be a java file at the ./jre/bin directory. I.e: A comparison of my OpenJDK 6 and 7 directories. OpenJDK 6: root/bin/$ pwd /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-openjdk-amd64/jre/bin root/bin/$ ll total 464 drwxr-xr-x 2 root (HowTos)
