hi, i've download jave-based installer fro jedit from its website... but now the problem is ".jar" file opens up in Archive Manager program when I click on it...instead of running the auto-installer...
Failed to load Main-Class manifest attribute from jedit42install.jar
Open the file with some archive manager. Check if a file /META-INF/MANIFEST.MF exists within that. Check whether this file contains the line "Main-Class: folder1.folder2.file". "folder1.folder2.file", of course, is just a placeholder of mine. Check whether the file /folder1/folder2/file exists in the archive.
If you've did that, and just nodded, "OK, exists", jedit42install.jar should be valid (which is likely). In this case, we'ld need to find out more about your Java version (as jlliagre suggested).
[zixan@localhost ~]$ java -version
java version "1.4.2"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1)

I think there's a problem whith the gnu java installed on my system, as the file exists suggested by robbbert. I also installed java by sun (jre) using this tutorial but I think my system is not configuring it as the default java plugin..
