IMHO downloading the JDK from sun is not the best idea considering that it is also in the repositories. In fact, I get the impression that the problem in this case is precisely that the manual approach was taken; if you install the package from the repository, paths, updates, integration, ... will be taken care of automatically.

Find javac on your system using locate or find, then add its directory to your path. Problem solved. If javac does not exist on your system, take the above advice and get the JDK on your system.

Good luck!
