hello. to start off i am new at linux.
my goal is to install oracle sun java, the one from javas website. no i do not want to install the free jdk penguin java from the software center because that doesnt run the files i would like to run.
So how exactly would one go about installing the official Java 7 packages from Oracle? I would enjoy installing Java 7 (officially), but I could live with OpenJDK if I had to.I'm curious, though. Java 6 was a .bin file which I think, if I remember correctly, just self-extracted, but Java 7 is packaged as either a .rpm (I would prefer not to use alien to try and make .debs) or a .t
So I downloaded the latest version of Java from Oracle so I could get a 64bit JVM on Ubuntu Server 10.10. After extracting the file and updating the alternatives I went to check my installation by running java -version and I get this error: -bash: /usr/bin/java: cannot execute binary file
I have a Ubuntu machine and I have a Linux instance running in a Virtual-box on this machine. I need to connect to the oracle instance (through the oracle extension in php) . The extension is running. I am not sure about how to do the port forwarding and if I need to edit the host file. I read the manual, but still no luck. Any help is appreciated.
I'm having a small problem. I've been trying to work Minecraft into working using Wine. Over the past few hours, I've been working with Java over and over (long story, I'll keep it relevant) and have finally come to an answer. I need to install Oracle Java, or Sun-JRE as more commonly known. I found this answer http://askubuntu.com/a/56119 and followed the instructions.
I'm trying to install jdevstudio from Oracle on Ubuntu 12.10. I have downloaded a file with .bin extension. Unfortunately neither of the two provided methods (using terminal or setting the permission) works for me. I have placed the file in home folder but again nothing happens. What should I do?
I really need your help in this. I am trying to install Oracle database 11g Express Edition Release 2 which I downloaded from the oracle site. They haven't given an installation instruction for express edition so I am following the installation instruction of Standard Edition.
I got to do some image processing programme in java using Linux. I chose to use the JMF for my camera (a webcam) access. But my program is not able to access the camera. But, the jmf works well in Windows.
I downloaded jmf from oracle.com and I tried to install it in 'Ubantu 10.10-the Maverick-released in October 2010 and supported until April 2012'. The downloaded file was a .bin file.
