JavaVM is screwed
 
I'm having a problem with the JRE. I have installed it and it's all in check, except for the environmental variables JAVA_HOME and PLUGIN_HOME. I tried setting JAVA_HOME in /etc in the "profile" file, but it still doesn't recognize it; I even tried setting these variables manually. The error I get when trying to install a bin is "this is not a java virtual machine" or some bullshit like that. I really can't figure out what the hell to do. I'm using Ubuntu and it seems like nothing wants to work.

Locate the folder where JVM is installed and issue this command in shell:

export $PATH=PATH:/location_of_java/bin/

point it to the bin folder because thats where everything is. I dont quite follow what you mean by

-- You said you installed it already and the next line you are saying you tried to install a binary. Please be more clear.

Good Luck
