Java runtime environment


I'm trying to install Java runtime environment on my debian machine and have downloaded the .bin file, but have no idea where to go from there...I tried apt-get, but it "could find the package".

You have to execute the binary file.
Code:
chmod +x file.bin
./file.bin
If you have Debian, there are some Java debian pacjages, you just have to search for them google. Java is not included in the official Debian repositories since it's commercial software.

Try the following commands, you probably have to be root.

chmod u+x theedownloadedfile.bin
./thedownloadedfile.bin

.bin file is a binary (executable). Just run it (or if it's not executable run chmod a+x filename.bin before).
