Have you already installed java? If not: http://www.java.com/en/download/help/5000010500.xml#rpm will take you through download and installation. Download the Linux RPM.

If you have already installed java, it's very likely that you need to add it to your path.

First startup your konsole, then type the following exactly as seen:

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/java/jre1.6.0_01 <-- (change this if your version is different) (press enter)
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/bin (press enter)
export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/usr/java/jre1.6.0_01/man (press enter)

Type exit to close your konsole.
