Enabling Multiuniverse in Synaptic
 
Trying to install Frostwire in debian "sarge" and I keep getting the following error when trying to run it from the shell

Java exec not found in PATH, starting auto-search...
ls: /usr/lib/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/lib/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /usr/java/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /usr/java/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com
ls: /opt/j*: No such file or directory
OOPS, unable to locate java exec in /opt/ hierarchy
You need to upgrade to JRE 1.4.x or newer from http://www.java.com

I have installed J2RE from the Java site using ./<packagename> and it installs, but when I do the java -version from the shell, I get command not found. I have googled to try and find how to enable multiuniverse in Synaptic but I can only find how to do this in Ubuntu and apparently my synaptic is different then Ubuntu.

I am guessing that I have two problems but I needed verification. From the Path error I assume that it cant find Java and apparently I dont have a certain plugin to run FrostWire.

Can someone give me an idea what I am missing. the strange thing about this was I just installed this on a friend laptop and she was running Ubuntu 6.06.....LOL and I cant even install it on my box.

If you enable sid you can install the java package there.

Then (as root)

ln -s /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun /usr/lib/java/

That should do it.
