Everything seems to be installed correctly, but Java's not running properly. The console shows:

It would help if you provided more information about the problem and your system.

Are you really still using Ubuntu 7.1?

Did you check with Google at all?

How do you know that "everything seems to be installed correctly"?

Incompatible magic value 1013478509 in class file jreCheck

You have a file named jreCheck.class (possibly inside a Jar file) that is for a later Java version than the JVM that you are trying to use to run it.

This may mean that you have multiple java executables installed; try removing any that are for a version below 1.6.

To find out what the Java version you are actually running is, can you please run the following from a terminal and post the results? <code>which java
java --version</code>

I'm using Ubuntu 8.04.

The reason I say it seems to be installed correctly is that I have the same things installed on my laptop as are installed on that system and it's running well. Also "Enable Java" shows up in the Preferences as an option.

Well this is certainly an interesting post. I think you wanted to have the following for the commands.

Code:
which java
java -version

Okay. That's good.

I'm running *buntu 8.04 and Java 1.6.0.14 that lives at /usr/lib/java-6-sun-1.6.0.14. The executable is jre.

I am ALSO running kaffe 1.4.2 which lives at /usr/bin. The executable is named java.

The two seem compatible. OOo sees the genuine Sun Java while everything else sees the kaffe imposter.

As rjlee implies by asking you to run 'which java' and 'java -version' you may not have exactly what you think you have. My *buntu systems started out with messed up Java. I tried a bunch of things before I got it to settle down and work. I don't remember exactly what I did but it involved removing this and installing that and yada yada yada until it just started to work.

Do the two commands that rjlee specified and post the results. Please.

"which java" returns
/usr/bin/java

"java -version" returns
java version "1.6.0_10"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_10-b33)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 11.0-b15, mixed mode, sharing)

Thanks for all your help!

Firefox 3.5 has a "broken" IcedTea6

The media site www.ninjavideo.net uses a java applet to setup a secure downloader. This fails under Firefox 3.5

The ninjavideo's user shockdiode's solution is ...
sudo apt-get remove icedtea6-plugin
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-plugin

Afterward you still have ...
java -version
java version "1.6.0_0"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.4.1) (6b14-1.4.1-0ubuntu11)
OpenJDK Client VM (build 14.0-b08, mixed mode, sharing)


Note: If you don't have it, the sun-java6-plugin will automatically install Firefox 3.0 - don't worry about it; the security applet will work even if it's started from Firefox 3.5

Ishkabibble - I have no idea if this has anything to do with your problem. But maybe?, I hope.
