jedit installed successfully on linux mint virtualbox but simply wont run!


Hey all! I'm sort of new to linux so it would be great if instructions are thorough
I installed jedit via a debian file and it has installed successfully. However when i run the jedit application there is no startup icon. The cursor just loads a bit(waiting) then…nothing. Any ideas? I’ve tried installing and re-installing many times with different installation packages but nothing. Im running linux mint on virtualbox.
Thanks a lot in advance.

Try to start jedit from a terminal and look at the errormessages.

Kind regards

Hey Repo
I get this message:
/usr/local/bin/jedit: 24: exec: /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_20/bin/java: not found
even though there is indeed a jedit exec file in that directory

java-wrappers set to manually installed.

Did you install jedit from a deb file you downloaded?
Try to install with apt-get
Code:
apt-get remove jedit
apt-get install jedit
Kind regards

It's telling you that there is no java executable in /usr/local/java/jdk1.8.0_20/bin. I don't know why that is, because I don't use editors that require java, or anything else. I don't know how you installed java in the first place, or if you did.

Well the mistake is that there is no directory called jdk1.8.0_20 it is actually called jdk1.8.0_25 so the path is wrong. Can I change it so that the file is accessed from the correct path?

Since you get that message when running "/usr/local/bin/jedit" and you do have java installed, take a look in the jedit file for references to jdk1.8.0_20. Since the directory is actually "jdk1.8.0_25", change them to the correct one. I'm not sure why that would be the case if you just installed this software. If that doesn't work, I don't know what the problem is.

Thanks for the replies. The problem was that I had removed the OpenJDK and installed an Oracle JDK so the path changed but it remained the same for jedit.
