It would really help if you told us which version
of Linux you're using, what desktop environment or
window-manager you're using, and the likes.



Cheers,

True. Now if you installed something like Ubuntu, Mandriva or Suse, java should be only two or three clicks away.
And what exactly is wrong with your clock? Do you mean it is a few hours off? That could be a UTC/local time thing.
