Getting Java to work!!!!

Hey guys,
I just downloaded Lime Wire, and when I try to install it, it said I need Java plud-in thing.
So I downloaded it, and extracted all the files into a directory.
But when I go to install LimeWire, it says I didn't install it?
The Java package was a RPM.BIN, and so I got it to a rpm, and installed package.
Now what is wrong? Thanks a lot :P

maybe java is not in your PATH enviroment variable. open up a terminal and type: echo $PATH now check if there's a path to you java executables. if not, use this to add this to your path:

export PATH=$PATH:/path/to/java/executables

you can place this line at the bottom of your ~/.bashrc to make this permanent.
