adobe


Hi

I have downloaded adobe into the down load folder, how do I install it in terminal.

Using Ubuntu 10.04

To begin with they say to use au to enter your password in terminal it dose not recognize the password were the ubuntu accepts it for other programs.

Thanks EAI



Install
# Linux self extracting binary file
# Linux RPM package

Note: The instructions below are for installing Java 6. If you're-installing another version, make sure you change the version number appropriately when you type the commands at the terminal.
To install the Linux (self-extracting) file
Follow these instructions:

1. Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable. Type:
chmod a+x jre-6u<version>-linux-i586.bin
2. Verify that you have permission to execute the file. Type:
ls -l

Make sure the installation file has executable permission

3. Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type:
cd <directory path name>
For example, to install the software in the /usr/java/ directory, Type:
cd /usr/java/

Note about root access: To install Java in a system-wide location such as /usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install the Java in your home directory or a subdirectory for which you have write permissions.

4. Run the self-extracting binary Type:
./jre-6u<version>-linux-i586.bin

The license agreement is displayed. Review the agreement. Press the spacebar to display the next page. At the end, enter yes to proceed with the installation.

5. Java is installed into its own directory. In this example, it is installed in the /usr/java/jre1.6.0_<version> directory. When the installation has completed, you will see the word Done.

The installation completes

6. Verify that the jre1.6.0_<version> sub-directory is listed under the current directory. Type:
ls

Verify the installation filename

The installation is now complete. Skip to the Enable and Configure section.

To install the Linux RPM (self-extracting) file
Follow these instructions:

1. Become the root user by running the su command and entering the super-user password.
At the terminal: Type:
su
Enter the root password.
2. Change to the directory in which you want to install. Type:
cd <directory>
For example, to install the software in the /usr/java/ directory, Type:
cd /usr/java

Note about root access: To install Java in a system-wide location such as/usr/local, you must login as the root user to gain the necessary permissions. If you do not have root access, install Java in your home directory or a subdirectory for which you have write permissions.

3. Change the permission of the file you downloaded to be executable. Type:
chmod a+x jre-6u<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin

4. Start the installation process. Type:
./jre-6u<version>-linux-i586-rpm.bin

The license agreement is displayed. Review the agreement. Press the spacebar to display the next page. At the end, enter yes to proceed with the installation.

5. The installation file creates and runs the file jre-6<version>-linux-i586.rpm in the current directory.

RPM unpacking completes

6. Verify that the jre1.6.0_<version> sub-directory is listed under the current directory. Type:
ls

Verify the installation filename

The installation is now complete. Go to the Enable and Configure section.
Enable and Configure
Firefox or Mozilla

1. Create a symbolic link to the libjavaplugin.so file in the browser plugins directory
* Go to the plugins sub-directory under the Firefox installation directory
cd <Firefox installation directory>/plugins

* Create the symbolic link
ln -s <Java installation directory>/plugin/i386/
ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

In the ln command line above, use ns7-gcc29 if Firefox was compiled with gcc2.9.

If you install Firefox 1.5 or later, you can enable the Java Console menu item in the Tools menu. Change directories to the Firefox extensions directory, then unzip ffjcext.zip there.

cd /usr/lib/firefox-1.4/extensions
unzip /usr/java/jre1.6.0/lib/deploy/ffjcext.zip

Example
* If Firefox is installed at this directory:
/usr/lib/firefox-1.4/
* And if the Java is installed at this directory:
/usr/java/jre1.6.0
* Then type in the terminal window to go to the browser plug-in directory:
cd /usr/lib/firefox-1.4/plugins
* Enter the following command to create a symbolic link to the Java Plug-in for the Mozilla browser.
ln -s /usr/java/jre1.6.0/plugin/i386/ns7/libjavaplugin_oji.so

2. Start the Firefox browser, or restart it if it is already up.

In Firefox, type aboutlugins in the Location bar to confirm that the Java Plugin is loaded. If the version is Firefox 1.5 or later, click the Tools menu to confirm that Java Console is there

Test Installation
To test that Java is installed and working properly on your computer, run this test applet.
