Looks good, I'd put a space between fi and PATH but that's just for eye pleasure, not anything more.

Anyway, cool. Now, you need to source the file so open up a terminal and type:
source /etc/profile

And that should be it. Now you should have java installed.

Cool

Everything should be cool now yes.

What script? Post the conents of your /usr/local/bin/java directory, and also the contents of your /usr/local/bin/java/bin directory.

Cool

I believe it was setting variables for your terminal. Shouldn't matter as far as all this is going, and actually shouldn't matter overall, as it's just for things that are probably setup somewhere else.

Whoa, I never saw that src.zip file before, now I am curious. I unzipped elsewhere and am wondering what it's for. Looks like good stuff

If you find out, let me know, cause that looks important maybe but I haven't had any problems with java on my system

Cool

Geeeez, i love Linux but sometimes it pisses me off just trying to get programs to run...after all that time when i try running the program this prints:
Code:
[root@localhost JPhotoBrush]# java JPhotoBrush.jar
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: JPhotoBrush/jar
And here are the contents of those folders...:

Ok i can't show the contents of the folder...because ls or dir couldn't be found....heres proof...unless i'm typing them wrong lol...
Code:
[root@localhost java]# ls
bash: ls: command not found
[root@localhost java]# dir
bash: dir: command not found
[root@localhost java]#

Ok, so I just decided to unzip it in the java directory, it didn't mess with LimeWire, so I guess it didn't do any harm...

Hmm, I wonder if it's mentioned in the README or INSTALL files?

Anyway, any luck?

Cool

logout of root and backin

And also source your bash_profile:
source ~/.bash_profile

Ok, so looks like you might need to specify it elsewhere, ok do this:
echo $PATH

If you don't see /usr/local/bin/java/bin

Then our efforts above in /etc/profile didn't work. You will instead need to place that into your bash_profile (and now I am gun-shy, so post the contents of your bash_profile and your bashrc file so I know I am telling you the correct file)

And you will also want to remove the entry we made in /etc/profile for java path.

Ok ls works, now i just want to know why are we taking out the stuff from profile and now using the bash profile? Java is working i think...it's just that program? is it?

If java is working now, then that's cool. But no, from that error message it reads as java's problem, not the programs.

Now that ls is working, post the contents.

Cool

Oh and 1 more thing, to execute that file it's:
java -jar JPhotoBrush.jar

Don't forget the -jar after java

Cool
