Smile avoiding software manager breakdown


Hi,

Few days back when I tried to install java application using software manager, I got the message that my software manager has broken down. Since then I was not able to install any of the applications either through terminal or the software manager, despite being given a lot of assistance from this forum

Luckily, I got another fresh copy of Linux Mint 10(Julia) installed on my laptop.

Please help me with some efficient method of installing the required applications(java and its associated applications) so that I do not face such problems again in the future.

I think Mint comes with Sun's java by default.

Check that with;
Code:
java -version
What do you want to install exactly?

Perhaps we could...if you actually TOLD US what the error(s) were, when you got them, and what you did. All we know by this post is that you tried to install SOMETHING, and it didn't work. Most Linux distros come with Java already...no idea what you mean by "associated applications".

Hmm... tell what kind of fresh copy of Linux Mint was that? Where did you get it?

Anyhow, post the output of;
Code:
sudo apt-get install eclipse-jdt

Ok...so did you enter what it told you??? Like "sudo apt-get install openjdk-6-jre-headless"? It gave you THREE choices on how to install Java.

Ok...so then (as alan_ri stated) "sudo apt-get install eclipse-jdt", which will then pull in whatever it needs. But Eclipse isn't a Java program..it's an IDE. Java is separate.
