Howdy, ya'll

My name is Nick. I'm new to Linux and to be honest I think I may be in over my head. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to get a JRE to run. If anyone can walk me through this I'd be eternally grateful.

i'm running ubuntu.

I figured out what was wrong. I was running a fossil version and needed to update to a more current one. Everything is great now. I had no idea how fast this cruddy machine can run....
