I need to run a program,OpenChrom
, that requires a JRE of 1.6 or greater. The program runs as a standalone executable, no installation is indicated.
apt-get install sun-java6-bin
and the installation appeared to go smoothly. I now have a folder:
that looks like it has the whole JRE in it. However when I check my java version I get the following:
adam@debian:~/Desktop/OpenChrom$ java -version
java version "1.5.0"
gij (GNU libgcj) version 4.3.2
I found something on YoLinux
that makes me think I need to tell my computer, or the shell, where to find Java. How do I do this? Needless to say openchrom does not run, it crashes after the splash screen. Thank you for your consideration.
