Trying to install latest Java version in Crunchbang linux
Hi i'm trying to install the latest version of Java on CrunchBang linux and have come up against a problem, i'm quite new to linux so still learning whats what. What do i do to correct this, I originally ran:
apt-get install java-common j2re1.4
and after pressing enter i got this
Reading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
java-common is already the newest version.
java-common set to manually installed.
Package j2re1.4 is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package j2re1.4 has no installation candidate
Do i need to install the release candidate, or what should i do next?
Help is appreciated, thanks
